Happy International Women’s Day! I wanted to take today’s blog post and make it all about some of the women of the world who are my inspirations. This isn’t my idea. I actually saw this on a recent blog post I read and commented on, and also on a post from Marie Claire magazine.
Please go check out the original post from Hannah Mary! She posted about her most inspirational women television characters. Check it out here: https://hanmwill.com/inspiring-women-tv-edition.
Today, I want to focus on some of the women who inspire me, real or fictional, from the last 100 years.
