This photo is tagged “suffrage,” “garment strike,” and “activist.” Regardless of why these women were gathered together, they look like formidable women who should not be messed with. I come from a long line of strong-willed and independent women. Tell us that we can’t do something and watch out! We will make a way to accomplish our goals.
Hopefully we all have women in our lives who have nurtured us, strengthened us, and encouraged us to shoot for the stars. These women could be real, fictional, deceased, or alive. It’s not necessary to have met a person for them to have been a strong influence. Some of my biggest influences, apart from the women in my family, include Teresa of Avila, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Phylicia Rashad (Claire Huxtable on the Cosby Show).
What women have been instrumental in making me the person I am today?
Take a moment to offer gratitude for their presence in your life.
Stay curious friends!
