Celebrating International Women’s Day

Eva Peron Quote

International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s.  It’s a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.  Throughout the day there are many events going on around the world.  My contribution is a roundup of inspiring quotes by Latinas.

The world is full of strong brilliant women who have had to overcome.  Their stories are not found in history books. The voices which have been marginalized in mainstream media are the ones I chose to highlight in this space.  

While many milestones have been achieved the reality is women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts,  are not present in equal numbers in business or politics.  On a global level women’s education, health and violence against them is worse than that of men.  This is unacceptable.  Let us be inspired to continue striving for equality  because we deserve it, out daughters deserve it and the whole world needs it to happen.
