Welcome, readers! welcome to you all, to the very best day in the AOW calendar, International Women’s Day.
In the past, we have invited incredible submissions from you all,and you wrote about choices, about change, about being a woman.
This year, we’re doing something a little different. We asked you to send us your advice. Advice for the next generation of readers of this blog. It could be advice you wish you had received any years ago. It could be advice that’s been passed down through your family. It could be advice that you live by every day. It could be advice you wish you did live by; and that you want your daughters and all the other daughters in the world to heed.
And readers? Your advice blew us away. We should have suspected it, really. You saw our request and you raised us advice stemming from history; from experience; from dreams; from the will to be a better person; from the acceptance that comes from knowing who you are.
We will be posting your advice every half an hour, throughout the day. Please come back to read, please leave a comment or three.
We want to build momentum today. We want to leave you all feeling inspired. We want you to write down your favourite parts of today, and tell it to as many daughters as you can, so that they are left feeling they can change the world.
