It was International Women's Day yesterday, and every year it passes by, I think (even more than usual) of the women who inspire, who mentor, who share, who give without knowing, and those who give intentionally.
I think of the media landscape and how women are working within it to push women forward: sites like Levo (I'm featured here), and Clever Girl Finance, which shares amazing tips regarding finances and building wealth, and spotlights women in business, and The Young Empress, which also tells the stories of female entrepreneurs to inspire others. I know a lot more exist, so please share in the comments.
I think of Nigerian women doing amazing things, like those on this list of Nigeria's 100 most influential (I'll make it on there someday) ladies, and many more besides - those in my home, in my family, my friends, colleagues, and even random strangers here or anywhere in the world, who despite, in spite of, or even because all the people who say they can't; can, and DO.
Here are some tweets I thought to share - to make you think & to make you smile:
Hope you all had a wonderful #IWD2016. Cheers to all us women; we do a lot of heavy lifting, and frankly, we deserve more than just one day!! :)
