Women Breaking Down Barriers

Women are and have always been strong. So why has it taken so long for the world to recognise that? Thanks to some of the women on this list; women are becoming more recognised around the world for their contributions to society and devotion to their passions. A recent example of this would be New Zealand’s Prime Minister – Jacinda Ardern. Arden has been recognised for the decisiveness, rapidity and effectiveness of the response to COVID 19, as well as the compassionate communication of fact-based public health information. Everywhere you look around you women are doing amazing things; the trick is to recognise it.

Here’s our list of accomplished women:

*Malala Yousafzai
*Maya Angelou
*Frida Kahlo
*Michelle Obama
*Florence Nightingale
*Rosa Parks
*Jane Austin
*Amelia Earheart

Another example of a recognised, accomplished woman would be Malala Yousafzai. Malala is a powerhouse for female education and equality and this passion unfortunately resulted in an attempt on her life – amazingly, Malala not only survived but continued to stand up for female education. Her determination and passion for life demand and advocate for female education has no doubt positively impacted the world. For example: more children now having access to free education and the ability to complete a full course of primary schooling and much more. This gained Malala a Nobel Peace Prize at the age of 17 and universal recognition.  

One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai

Similarly, Maya Angelou used her personal domestic adverse experiences to make a tremendous difference within literature and modern society. Angelou is known as an accomplished author, poet, memoirist and civil rights activist. Angelou was known to never be hesitant to speak her mind, passionately defending the rights of women, young people and the ignored. This passion and determination made Angelou a catalyst during the civil rights movement as she effortlessly traversed the worlds of literature and activism.

So what do these women have in common other than greatness? Adversity and breaking down barriers. These extraordinary women rose above their experiences and didn’t let it dictate who they are. Instead, they used it as a source of motivation to help others and accomplish brilliant unforgettable achievements recognised universally. The moral is; everyone’s got their mountains, it is how you choose to climb it that matters. We all have our stories and hurdles, the key is to stay positive and keep focus towards your goals. These women stood their ground in the face of adversity and exceled for what they believed in whist motivating others and you can too.

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou
