Women who make history - peacemakers and advocates of love

1 min read 1 Comment

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 from history and current day who are advocates of peace and love

These women are promoters of peace, advocates for love, and teachers of kindness.

Jane Addams - Founder of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom - worked to get great powers to disarm during WW1, and fought to end child labor in the United States


Oprah Winfrey - kick ass human. Brings self-improvement, mindfulness, and spirituality to the masses


Emma Gonzalez - school shooting survivor who co-founded Never Again, a powerful grassroots gun reform movement.


Mother Teresa - helped the poorest of the poor with devotion


Dorothy Cotton - civil rights activist who taught nonviolence for social change


Judy Grisez - best direct example of unconditional love, generosity, and fun (also, my mom. : )

 

Thanks ladies for making the world a better place!
