International Women’s Day – March 8th

Don’t forget to celebrate the strong women in your life & of course yourself!

Who will be on your list?   Let us know………  IWD was originally celebrated on March 19th 1911, so in my mind we have a couple of weeks.

My list includes my sister ( a leader in precision engineering),  she is my hero and friend who takes on the men in what they think is their field and quickly becomes their hero too;  Valentina Tereshkova, my childhood hero (the 1st woman in space, she piloted Vostok 6 in June 1963) now there is a step out of your comfort zone;  Julie Tullis  who was strong and cared about others until the end (a  British mountaineer,  my mentor  and friend who died on K2 in August 1986) and many more who show their courage, strength and passion every day in everything they do!
