International Women's Day

Today is a day to celebrate all that is being a woman.

For me there are a few people that have inspired me. So here is my top 5, in no order.

12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910 Florence Nightingale

 An inspiration for her pioneering work in nursing during the Crimean War. Making a foundation for the profession of nurses.

12 June 1929 – early March 1945 Annelies Marie Frank

One of the most renowned victim of the Holocaust. A inspiration by the quality of her writing.

13 October 1925 - present Margaret Thatcher

 First female prime minister of Britain, and the longest serving in the modern day.

Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa) 26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997

Truly a symbol of peace and devotion to others.

Agnes Smyth Baden-Powell 16 December 1858 – 2 June 1945

Most noted for her work in establishing the Girl Guide movement as a female counterpart to her older brother's Scouting movement.

So let's remember,
