Today Is International Women’s Day
All across the globe today, International Women's Day and a fight against discrimination against women is going on. While it's a far greater issue than anyone day can make it--having a day to hyper-focus on what shouldn't even be a "battle" is certainly important.
"An equal world is an enabled world", reads the top of the website for International Women's Day-- and isn't that the truth. Together as a society, we should be fighting for gender equality on every level. Who runs the world? Girls.

She is tough as nails, her love is unconditional, and she pushes me every day to be the best version of myself.

She and my mother who she raised, are constantly my strongest inspirations. Having two hard-working, driven, and strong women like them in my life continually shapes me.
We all know strong women and they make the world go around.
