Celebrating the women of the world

Beautiful woman, International women's day

It’s international women’s day and we’re celebrating all that makes us women. So far, we’ve looked at the work of J.K Rowling and as the week progresses we’ll delve into the world of modern-day, inspirational women from Japan, Nairobi and New Zealand. But, today is all about you. 

Travel Antics has always had a deep fascination with the world, in fact, our tag line is ‘exploring the world through the people we meet along the way.’ So, we want to remember the beautiful women we’ve met from all corners of the world, and these are just a few.

Verity is one of the best people we’ve had the fortune to interview. A woman who started her own charity named Enable the Children in Sierra Leone, a country that has slipped in and out of the news because of a brutal civil war and more recently the ebola virus. Her work and those of her co-workers meant many disabled children are now accepted in their community and they’re able to lead normal lives.

These two women are doing all they can to lessen the suffering of the Syrian refugees who are looking for nothing more than a better life for their loved ones. This was taken at a rally in Central London.

A beautiful woman who has proven many a time that you should be proud of who you are and chase your dreams, even if they don’t make sense to everyone. We can’t get enough of Michelle.

I found this woman in an underpass while wandering around the streets of Trieste. Although it’s clear life hadn’t treated her well, she still offered a smile to anyone seeking cover from the sudden downpour.

Being a woman in this day and age is no easy feat and as a gender, we should stick together. In the words of Charlotte Brontë  “I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.”
