There are heroes among us. Everyday women who’ve achieved extraordinary feats. Many have overcome obstacles, from self-doubt and physical limitations to financial constraints and discrimination.
Throughout the month of March Parentology celebrates Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (3/8/2020), with spotlights on inspiring women of 2020.
We call it Redefining Rosie: Cool Women, Uncommon Jobs.
This series of articles, slated to run throughout March, will feature inspiring women sharing stories about their journeys and how they arrived at places that often surpass the very dreams that spurred them on.
