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.

Mother Teresa - helped the poorest of the poor with devotion

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


Thanks ladies for making the world a better place!
