On International Women’s Day, we can celebrate the stories of trailblazers like Rosa Parks, Leymah Gbowee and ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton. Their examples give women everywhere hope and inspiration to make our own ways in the world.
But it can also be a little daunting, can’t it? I mean, what about those of us who spend our days working hard, caring for our loved ones and getting into bed feeling as if we’ve hardly started our to-do lists, let alone left our marks on society? Are we no less bold, courageous or inspirational?
We won’t all end up on the evening news for acts of valor or have our stories shared on International Women’s Day, but we can all be bold enough to be on the lookout for those who need us.
Today we observe International Women’s Day. This message is an excerpt from a February 2017 Women of the ELCA blog by Sarah Carson.
