International Women’s Day has been observed for over a century, although it was not adopted officially in America and other western nations until 1977, when the United Nations got behind the initiative. The day first began in Soviet bloc countries as women fought for equal freedoms and civil rights. Over the last 100 years it has come to represent the empowerment of girls and women in all walks of life; and in considered a positive avenue to highlight the struggles of women globally, bringing them to the forefront. With the convergence of many nations in the effort, not only are issues identified, a strategic plan of action can be formulated.
Countless women have made valuable contributions to the American legacy; from Clara Barton, founder of the Red Cross, to Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’ Conner. In education, sports, business and the arts, America has a rich history of female achievement and societal impact. However, some of the most influential women who have shaped our nation are the every day heroes – the mothers, grandmothers, teachers and mentors.
