The Women Who Inspire Me

Today is International Women’s Day. To celebrate the contributions women are making in communities and countries around the world, we’re asking you to submit a photo and 200 words about a woman/women that inspire you.

NB: To view the captions and stories of each person, click on the photo.

We thank everyone who submitted photos and stories. We’ll keep updating the slide-show as photos come in throughout the day, so please check back. If you’d like to submit yours, click here.
