International Women's Day .....

......is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. 

Here is my post from 2015.

And here is my post from 2016.

This year I'm sharing another book, The Blessings of a Good Thick Skirt.

Lady Mary Wortley MontaguMary KingsleyFanny WorkmanAmelia Earhart, Lady Hester StanhopeHarriet Quimby.
Some of these names are more familiar than others I'm sure.
Each of them deserve to be remembered for their sheer determination and strength of character, for their own talents and achievements and for making their mark in history when chances for women to pursue their ambitions were so much more restricted.

I think I would enjoy this book Lisa and I do like a nice thick skirt (and thick tights too!) x

Looks a good book Lisa ...
I hope you had a good weekend and the new week has started well.

It's hard to believe that it's almost the middle of March! 2017 is passing by as quickly as 2016 did!

All the best Jan
