Women Empowerment - 10 Days of Women History
Dear gorgeous women in the world. On the occasion of International Women’s Day, let's remember the women who changed the lives of many people and gave inspiration to them.
Like, Mother Teresa, Elizabeth Arden, Annie Basant, Madam C.J. Walker, Helen Keller, Wilhelmina (Mina) Wylie, and Sarah (Fanny) Durack, Edith Cowan, Evelyn Scott, Maude Bonney, Jane Foss Barff, Faith Thomas, Louise Mack, Kathrine Switzer, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Coco Chanel, J.K. Rowling, Nova Peris, Elizabeth Kenny, Gladys Elphick, Elizabeth Blackburn and many more.
This post is in appreciation of all those strong women. Let's remember women empowerment in various fields. Now women are into every field, they are on par with men in every aspect even though they are into a military. In 1976, the first group of women was admitted into a U.S. military academy.
Being housewives/working women they need to manage their family and as well as work, We salute to those people who are homemakers.
This year, we at the Australian Skin Life want to honor the memory of Women who continue to inspire us all through their actions, setting an amazing example through leadership, commitment, and sheer will.
We are going to make a post on some of them on each day till this women’s day ( March 8th, 2020.)
