A day to celebrate all that have women have acheived
and to reflect on the things that still need to be acheived.
This week, the Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House
attended the Darebin International Women's Day Event
and posed this question :
"As a woman I am inspired by........................"
Some of these amazing quotes given were :
Other women who achieve
Women’s selflessness in general; their ability to “get on with it” without recognition or reward or any expectation of these.
My ballet teacher is interesting and I want to be like her – I am 9 yrs old – Jane Tyler
Other inspiring women.
Women with passion and a positive outlook on life
“All the women of the world; childbearers, servants of life, creative strong leaders.
Despite multiple oppressions women continue to thrive.” Hama
Men who truly like women
Experiencing different cultures
Our mothers, grandmothers, great aunts, sisters – all female relatives
Our female peers
Role models – teachers, professionals
Women who have taken a leading role in community life
Female community workers
All women survivors of family violence
Other independent women in the community
Our Prime Minister
My women friends who are always on hand to offer love and support and with whom I share laughter, tears, words, yoga, a swim, a walk along the beach, a bike ride on the trails and a coffee or two!
I give you roses to show you love
I give you daisies to show you life
And I give you daffodils to ease your strife
On this day for women worldwide
I must add a purple pansy to show you pride
And a white rose for peace
And a green leaf of myrtle to set you at ease” - Clare Nugent
"The generations of women
who shoulder to shoulder
fought for the rights of all women.
the sisterhood’s work remaining
sisters rise up and band
together to finally obtain
equality for all ourglobal sisters"
I think one of my favorites is 9 year old Jane's inspiring ballet teacher !
So, Who Inspires You ?
