Throughout history, we have had the honour to witness women’s strong and powerful courage which has transformed many lives, with women protesting and women standing up for what they believe is right, it created equality for women in todays society.
During the month of March we spend the time to reflect on the history of our women, honouring and uplifting other women and reflecting and being grateful for our lady hero’s whose actions allowed other women to now vote and have the same rights as men.
