International Women's Day!

Happy International Women's Day, everyone! How fitting that today is also Purim {Jewish holiday celebrating the story in the Book of Esther} which has a female hero.

Women are strong, ad beautiful, and important members of our world and our society. International Women's Day celebrates the progress we have made toward global equality, and towards recognizing that if you empower women to make their own choices that we have happier families, healthier children, and more productive economies.

WE did that, sisters! WE DID THAT!

There is still a way to go {and I am providing links at the end of this post}, but for today? Let's celebrate how far we have come.

Here are some resources and posts I loved:
