We all find a way to get through the tough days, the rough patches, the I’m-not-doing-great-today days. And when we’re taking care of ourselves as we try to build the world we want to live in, we need something to ground us.
For Women's History Month we’re reflecting as a team about the women who inspire us to keep going, try harder, and push through. Because that’s what we need; people who inspire us to be better than we are today, people who show us through their actions that not only can we make a difference, but that we can make this world a different and better place.
"I know it’s cliché, but the woman who has always been an inspiration in my life is my Mum. The older I get the more amazing I realise she is. She raised seven children and taught us that we could achieve anything if we were prepared to work for it and believe in ourselves. But also, something that I've probably been thinking about more as I get older, that success isn't what you have, but who you are. A big part of who I am is because of her, and she inspires me everyday.
"I love running, and when I think of inspiring women, I think about Kathrine Switzer - A great influencer in Women's Running (and running in general) as she paved the way to be the first first woman to run in the Boston Marathon. Even when faced with being pulled physically from the course, she didn't let this stop her and broke away to finish the race. An inspiration to so many women with one single act of defiance.
