Today is International Woman’s Day and I am sharing three women who have had an impact on my life.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. Anne Frank.
When I read Anne Frank’s Diary my life was forever changed. Her words had a profound impact on my being. It was difficult to realize that people did not all automatically have love and respect for each other. I was even more lucky to visit the Anne Frank Huis in Amsterdam years later where her simple writing is not forgotten and it continues to change the world today.
The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off. Gloria Steinem.
She was the first woman I recognized as a feminist. She gave that word new meaning and I wanted very much to be a feminist too! She gave a new meaning to the word for me – being a feminist was not a dirty word, but rather a glorious description of what a woman should be.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Maya Angelou.
I will never forget watching the inauguration of William Jefferson Clinton, not because it was such an amazing thing, but rather because of Maya Angelou’s poem. It was the first time I was entirely enthralled by the words of a poem read masterfully by its author.
