When you’re on the hunt for a job, here are a few pointed reminders…
I’d like to honor these women who shaped our journey to the stars. Whether the first in space or critical to getting beyond our atmosphere, there remains something truly powerful about their impact. Today, I’ll be sharing brief biopics of some historically significant women who crushed expectations and discrimination. They were first in their field and changed the world for the better.
I remember reading works by these women through childhood. Whether required for school or voluntary, each of them influenced me in ways I never anticipated. Each woman I remark upon today changed history for the better with the power of their words. They overcame adversity in many forms, often using their experiences as fuel for their writing. They serve as inspiration as women and as writers.
“If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them.”
On another note, the concept of keeping in touch stayed with me past that conversation. After processing my vulnerability, I found myself inspired to share the above story. I wanted others to see how a little courage goes a long way. Although I frequently see this friend, I hope his desire to keep in touch means more realness. As scared as I am for this, it will only help us and our friendship grow.
