Blog Posts about women for International Women’ s Day and beyond (2)
This roundup of blog posts is a good eclectic mix. You can read about the effects of the menopause (which will make you laugh and perhaps cry!), about whether the women of the future will have the financial luxury to live alone, the story of the very tough life of a woman .. to be the subject of a novel, and the declaration on the blog of a new commitment to a political career! You are also encouraged to think about who inspires you .. it may be someone close to home.
But we start where it all began … with Eve.

But can this continue for the next generation in the UK? Read more on Christine’s blog
Gill Buchanan “A Tribute to Molly”
Molly Hugh was an extraordinary woman and I’d like to remember her on this, International Women’s Day.
In 1925 at the tender age of fifteen Molly and her sisters and one older brother were thrown out on the streets with their deaf and dumb parents. Father, Anthony, had become ill and his shoe-making business had fallen on hard times and in one fell swoop they had lost everything Read more of Gill’s story

I’m writing this blog post on International Women’s Day in celebration of the day and to all women who continue to inspire, struggle and survive in this world today and to announce the fact that I am standing as a political candidate in the May local Council Elections!

Ute Wieczorek King “Inspirational Women – who inspires you?”
‘Inspirational Women- Who Inspires You’ was the theme for one of the big events I used to organise for International Women’s Day. For each event, we chose a keynote speaker with an inspirational story. A story about how they were able to overcome whatever life threw at them.
