Your words are a reminder of how far we’ve come and yet, for so many women , the path to creation and freedom is paved with rocks and thorns, difficult to navigate when you’ve no shoes. So in celebration of Women’s Day, I continue to hope for freedom and equality for all human beings.

A special blog, Rich. I did not know about the 1956 march and the brave women who participated back then. Today’s Londolozi women are inspiring and you’ve honored them beautifully!

You’ve hit the nail on the head with this beautiful piece. Thank you for not focusing on the idea that women were put on earth to bear children. Not all of us have done that but have managed to excel in other ways, as you have noted. Lastly, bravissimo to you for acknowledging the men who have helped make our world happen. We couldn’t do it without you!

Thanks Rich, the ten photos you have chosen are beautiful. I join you in giving thanks to the amazing women who (sometimes in spite of very difficult circumstances) continue to find the space to share their amazing vision and leadership.
