Women who make history - Equal rights and women’s rights advocates

1 min read

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’re featuring 6 amazing women each week. These women are trailblazers, activists, adventurers, advocates for love, defenders of the environment and nature, and warriors for equal rights. While we’ve split them up into 5 different categories, they blur the lines and cross boundaries in their accomplishments.

This is in no way an exhaustive list as we could list thousands. But a mere dusting of the surface in appreciation of the many women throughout history and current day who have made a difference in our world.

women who make history - equal rights advocates

These women expose the folly of letting fear guide your principles. They promote equality, fight injustice and inspire others to do the same.

Margaret Sanger - birth control, give women more control over our bodies
Betty Friedan - co-founder of National Organization for Women

Madeleine Albright - 1st female secretary of state and advocate for human rights + supporter of jewelry artists with an amazing brooch collection

Thank you ladies for making the world a better place!
