As a mom of three girls, I love any excuse to celebrate women. International Women’s Day is an especially great excuse because I think it’s important for my girls to understand that some things are worth taking a stand for, even if it’s unpopular. Injustices should not be overlooked and women can take a stand and create change. This is one of our all time favorite books, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls, and AK wrote one of my all time favorite stories in it.

The girls current favorites are The Mirabal Sisters and Matilda Montoya.

Who is your favorite extraordinary woman?
