#International Woman's Day


As a woman and as a woman's fiction author, I want to celebrate the day.
So let's get this party started...

Helen Reddy sings I Am Woman

Nancy Sinatra sings These Boots Are Made For Walkin'

Sister Sledge & All Star sing We Are Family

Wow, that was empowering--and it brought back happy memories of jumping on the sofa, hair brush mic in hand. And, much later, dancing with my sisters at an ECE (early childcare educators) conference.

How will you celebrate?

-Remembering famous women

I'll add a name to that list

Pauline Johnson
I meet her in university. I'll talk about her later this month.

To learn about other famous Canadian women, read 100 Canadian Heroines:  Famous and Forgotten Faces by Merna Forster

-Pay tribute to the special women past and present in your life

Here's a great way to end this post...

Woot! Woot! Party!
