International Women's Day

Today is International Women's Day and the theme for 2014 is Inspiring Change.

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to... all who care about human rights"

- Gloria Steinem

This poem, by Rachel Wiley, is for every woman who has ever questioned her beauty or her right to be loved, valued and respected, just exactly as she is.
