In two words: women rock. Long gone are the days of us being the weaker sex, we are the magnificent creators of the world. And not just talking procreation. We should celebrate the notion every day but today is a day to publicly celebrate women’s successes and achievements around the world. We should be proud; from business to politics, to having a voice to being the matriarch, remaining strong through thick and thin, we say goodbye to inequality.
My great grandma – Maisie – is my inspiration. She overcame so much in her life (living through a world war, overcoming the death of her oldest child, the loss of her husband being some of them!) but she always lit the room up with her warmth and quick wit! I carry this photo of us in my purse as a reminder of her resilience. Her last words to me were ’Never give up Rachel.’

I am inspired by lots of women every day. I am inspired by my girls whom I see learning to dance to the beat of their own drum, my mother whose passion for her family in unbreakable, my colleagues who, past and present, face the challenges that modern, everyday life throws at them and they still somehow manage to remain focused, ambitious, strong and fabulous AND put make up on every day.
There are lots of kick-ass ladies that I see doing amazing things on my timeline every day. One that stands out for me is blogger and app developer Elsie Larson, who is currently sharing her adoption story about her daughter Nova who suffers from albinism. She is so positive and is an amazing representation of an alternative family lifestyle.
