International Women’s Day on March 8 is by far, among any other day, a great day to reflect on the struggle for women’s rights and achievements, and to celebrate women.
Here are a dozen women I am acquainted with who inspire me daily. Thank you, ladies, for what you do, what you stand for. Here is why I am in awe, in a word or more. A longer essay would probably be fairer but the essence is what I’m aiming for.
Amy van der Hiel
She’s right (yes, always), kind, caring, sensible, smart, astute, efficient, positive and determined.
When I met Amy more than 15 years ago, I met a soul mate (or soul matey, heh, capt’n?)
A strong and modern woman. Caring, determined and wise. Gracious at all times, even when calling out scoundrels.
Being in touch with Ann, working alongside, has made me a better person.
An achiever who stands firmly for her values and puts her proverbial money where her mouth is. She’s also determined and eloquent.
A strong woman, who in a brave, friendly and inclusive way moves causes forward, be that securing the Web, the cause of women in tech, and even love!
Véro is pragmatic, wise, sensible, smart, reliable, discreet, brave, and an epicurean.
Véro has such an intriguing background. I wish I met her moar.
Intrepid, strong, brave, determined, humane, super-humane, crafty, web-savvy, a great worker, a great mum, a great friend.
When I think of Sophie, I think of wind in our hair as we rode the Space Mountain roller coaster. WOW!
Artistic and thorough, obsessive, relentless, caring. Delphine embarks on projects she believes in and makes succeed.
I wish I were closer to Delphine so that I could join some of her crafts bandwagon.
Sweet and strong, determined, efficient, always positive, eloquent. Léonie is a beacon.
Eve La Fée
Fount of knowledge, cunning, strong, eclectic, expert, crafty, natural.
When I think of Sylvie, I think sunshine. She’s energetic, positive, focused, determined, kind, adventurous and brave.
Tess is braveness impersonated, positivism, energy, strength, determination. She’s wonderful and beautiful.
Pure creativity. Philosophy. Energy. Booster. Eve tinkers on a humongous amount of projects and makes the best happen.
