Women’s Month: Be Inspired By These Women Who Made A Difference [Video]



  • These women on the list show that you do not have to be superwoman to influence others.
  • Women show that they can be from all walks of life with different pursuits and be empowered.
  • Let these women’s lives be the light in these trying times.

March is Women’s Month.  We take our hats off to these empowered women who defied odds, took on challenges, emerged triumphant, and brought light to women and men.
