Women in history I should tell my kids about
“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights” Gloria Steinem
On Saturday it will be international women’s day.
This weekend I was talking to my children about some amazing women throughout history.
It has been celebrated since the 1900s and more and more countries have increasingly come on board. It is a day for celebration and recognition. In many country IWD is a national holidays with equal status to mothers day and small gifts are given to mothers and grandmothers.
