A tribute to woman – March 8, Woman’s International Day
At Mexico Boutique Hotels we would like to salute each and every woman who with their work, effort and love have made a better society.
Since that March 8, 1908 when a meeting was held by a group of female workers in New York to demand better work conditions, up to date March 8, 2017, a number of happenings have occurred which have led to the recognition and respect for women’s importance.
Today I would like to list just a few of the women who along history have left a positive impact and are still recognized by their works.
We will start with Frida Kahlo, this excellent Mexican painter who with her art allow to glance the importance of self-esteem in a woman.
Teresa of Calcutta, a missionary who won a Nobel peace Prize for her tireless work in favor of the needy ones.
Diana of Wales, whose place within the English monarchy did not limit her from helping disadvantaged people.
Evita Perón, who after spending a poor childhood and youth was always worried by her country’s people and needs.
Marie Curie, a scientist winner of two Nobel prizes in Physics and Chemistry, who along with her husband fought tirelessly to obtain this great technological advancement we still use today, radiations to fight cancer, besides other science discoveries.
Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a nun whose poems delight us by the depth of phrases and have motivated women to recognize their own values.
Rigoberta Menchú, a Guatemalan Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1992 who has always wirked for equality and social justice for indigenous people.
