Female relatives, perhaps, who emigrated to a new land and created a new life.
Women who have entered male-dominated professions
to make monumental discoveries, such as Marie Curie.
Women who have challenged the patriarchy
to gain equality for women, such as Kate Shepherd.
Ordinary women who have done extra-ordinary things
to fundamentally change the way we live, such as Rosa Parks.
Compassionate women who have seen a need and met it, despite institutional opposition,
such as Mother Teresa or Mary MacKillop.
Let's remember and cherish these amazing women.
