"Strong enough to bare the children, then get back to business." 💪🏽 Beyoncé said it best. Many women (and parents) balance ⚖️ raising children with advancing their careers. In a new series on #TheWell, we interview different working parents about their work-life balance. First, we hear from one former IT exec and mom who shares how important childcare was while she climbed the corporate ladder 💼.

There is something about adventure: maybe it is the quality of being excited and
There is something about adventure: maybe it is the quality of being excited and petrified yet taking action that is inspiring beyond almost anything else. We look to women like Amelia Earhart, who disappeared forever because she dared to be “the first successful woman to successfully circumnavigate the globe” yet wasn’t successful in the end. . We are inspired by the daring of Ynes Mexia, a botanist who traveled all over Central and South America to collect and categorize plants in a career that didn’t even start until she was 55 years old, of an age many people are thinking of retiring. . Black Aviator Bessie Coleman was less known than Earhart, but she used her fame to infuse the voices of other black women with tenacious hope. . Sarah Winnemucca was a member of the Piute nation who had an affinity for languages and translation which made her an ideal translator during wartimes. She risked her life to help warring factions negotiate. . Choosing any of these four women, borrow their daring and their courage and do something a little bit more than you did yesterday. . Livestream? Direct message five new people to collaborate with you? Improve your call to action in your InstaStory or IGTV video? . What have you wanted to do that you haven’t done yet with Instagram? If you are a part of our exclusive InstaBosses mastermind group, we will go more in-depth about this within your chats & the group overall. . Start being brave by stating in the comments how you will begin to be more daring here on Instagram. 💡 For more tips, training and information on our Instagram community, 👉🏻👉🏽👉🏿 FOLLOW us @InstaBosses_ 👈🏿👈🏽👈🏻 .

Day 21 of our #monthofinspirationalwomen is Shonda Rhimes.⁣ ⁣ As one of the most influential producers and screenwriters in Hollywood, she’s quite the powerhouse. @shondarhimes is known and championed for creating diverse and intricate characters and storylines, predominantly putting women centre stage. ⁣ ⁣ She doesn’t shy away from writing meaty storylines around gender, race, equality, sexism, sexuality, the balance of working life, abortion, women not wanting children (shock horror), and so many more. Issues that other writers and producers on briefly skirt around. ⁣ ⁣ As a huge Grey’s fan, I’ve spent many joyful hours absorbed in the worlds she creates, falling in love with her characters (crying my eyes out on countless occasions), feeling inspired, challenged and at times a bit emotionally battered. She is incredible at what she does, and for that, I find her inspiring.⁣ ~ Jess⁣

We can never forget her beautiful presentation "Time, Passion and Stairs", sharing with us how she turned a devastating event of failure and uncertainty into a success story that just seems to get more intense and more inspiring with each passing year. . She has been a contributor to many literary compilations including Omeka Online where she authored the Afro-modernism article series between November, 2017 and November, 2018. She has a twin sister, is a * super cool Mum * and a cheerleader to the people she holds dear to her heart. . #StayCurious#StayInspired#WomensHistoryMonth#Architecture#Interiors#InteriorDesign#NigerianDesigners#Art#Colours#Furniture#Photography#InspiringWomen#Busi essMoguls #AwesomeMums#Superheroes#NigerianHeroes#WomensHistoryMonth2019#Lagos#Nigeria

In 2017, March 21st was designated as Rosie the Riveter day in honor of the 16,000,000 women who entered the workforce in support of the war effort during World War II. The most common image of Rosies is similar to the one here where two WACs are calibrating a shell at Aberdeen Proving Ground; however, women served in a variety of ways. Among many occupations, they worked as scientists, mathematicians, drivers, clerks, and spies.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ #RosietheRiveterDay#WomensHistoryMonth#WHM2019⁣⠀

Quote Source: Speech on “The Progress of Colored Women”, delivered before the National American Women’s Suffrage Association in 1898 by Mary Church Terrell Mary Eliza Church Terrell was a well-known African American activist who championed racial equality and women’s suffrage in the late 19th and early 20th century. Terrell was part of the rising black middle and upper class who used their position to fight racial discrimination. The daughter of former slaves, Terrell was born on September 23, 1863 in Memphis, Tennessee. Her father, Robert Reed Church, was a successful businessman who became one of the South’s first African American millionaires. Her mother, Louisa Ayres Church, owned a hair salon. Their affluence and belief in the importance of education enabled Terrell to attend the Antioch College laboratory school in Ohio, and later Oberlin College, where she earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. Her activism was sparked in 1892, when an old friend, Thomas Moss, was lynched in Memphis by whites because his business competed with theirs. Terrell’s life work focused on the notion of racial uplift, the belief that blacks would help end racial discrimination by advancing themselves and other members of the race through education, work, and community activism. Her words—“Lifting as we climb”—became the motto of the National Association of Colored Women (NACW), the group she helped found in 1896. She also actively embraced women’s suffrage, which she saw as essential to elevating the status of black women, and consequently, the entire race. She actively campaigned for black women’s suffrage.

Incredibly honored and humbled being a part of an organization that celebrates and recognizes women’s history month🙌🏻💫 • Feeling EXTRA appreciative for @gswdanceteam and how it has played such a monumental factor in shaping me who I am today 💗💗 • When I first joined the team, I’ve struggled with anxiety and lacked confidence, to the point where my coach was a mute which was really funny😂 But the women on the team were so open and accepting and helped me break my shell. They supported me as I was growing and getting through my hardships. I am eternally grateful for the dance team for being such a positive, vibrant outlet and for my teammates for being such goofy, loving people and helping me become a better version of myself. • From an outsider’s perspective, it’s easy to make assumptions about dancers, and especially about dancers on a pro dance team. But dance isn’t about having the pretty costumes or the glam and fame... it isn’t about having the perfect technique, executing intricate movements, or being the best - it’s about the commitment to improving. About being humble about your ability and being receptive to feedback because there’s always room to grow. It’s about forming a community with those who share your passion and to learning from those around you while inspiring others to grow. Something I love about this team is that everyone encompasses these qualities. • The women on this team constantly strives to improve their offering both on and off court, and encourages each other to do the same. This feeling of mutual growth combined with love and support is incredibly empowering • As a team, as women... we don’t settle for “good enough”. We make strides to breaking boundaries and to excelling with the support of each other. I am grateful to being surrounded by women who have no limits and support each other to succeed. • #prodance#dance#gswdanceteam#warriorsdanceteam#breakingthestereotype#breakingboundaries#growth#womenempowerment#Repost@warriors ・・・ “We’re trying to break boundaries and trying to reach our highest potential possible.“ Software engineer & @gswdanceteam captain Hannie takes us Beyond the 8 Count. #WHM2019 | #HearUsRoar

Cecil Matilda Oatman was born in South Norwich Township in 1890. She trained to be a nurse in Grace Hospital, Toronto. When she graduated in 1915, she enlisted with the Canadian Army Medical Corps, 4th Canadian General Hospital, as a nursing sister. . In June 1915, Matilda was serving with the 10th British General Hospital in Rouen, France; by November, she was back with the 4th Canadian, on her way to Salonika, Greece, where a British hospital had been constructed that could hold a thousand beds. Harold Poldon, another Norwich-born recruit serving with the 4th Canadian, shared the local papers his family sent him with Matilda. . Matilda's heath suffered while she was in Greece. In 1916, she suffered intestinal problems and was shipped to Alexandria, Egypt, to be treated for appendicitis. She was not the only nurse to suffer in Salonika. Nevertheless, she returned to duty after five weeks recovery. She fell ill again in December 1916, and this time she was sent to England for treatment. . After serving in several hospitals in England, Matilda returned to Canada in July 1917 with a shipload of invalided soldiers. As the ship approached Halifax harbour, it ran aground; Matilda and the other nurses rushed into action to offload the men from the stranded ship. . Matilda travelled home to Springford, via Toronto, and she gave a public talk in Tillsonburg about her service in the Dardanelles and Salonika. But by September 1917 she was back in Basingstoke, England, with the 4th Canadian. . On June 21, 1918, Matilda Oatman was awarded the Royal Red Cross Class 2. . Matilda Oatman's life is one of many local stories included in the book "Familiar Fields to Foreign Soil: Three Rural Townships at War, 1914-1919" by Jennifer Arthur-Lackenbauer, Piter Kikkert, and P. Whitney Lackenbaur, available from the Museum and Archives for $30. . . . #NorwichMuseum#NorwichArchives#NorwichTownship#Norwich#NorwichON#NorwichOntario#NorwichAndDistrictHistoricalSociety#NDHS#WomensHistoryMonth#WHM#WomensHistoryMonth2019#WHM2019#WomensHistory#localhistory#canadianhistory#ontariohistory#canadianwomenshistory#militaryhistory#firstwoeldwar#worldwarone#WWI#FWW

Quote Source: Iola Leroy, Or, Shadows Uplifted by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper
Quote Source: Iola Leroy, Or, Shadows Uplifted by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper Born in Baltimore, poet, fiction writer, journalist, and activist Frances Ellen Watkins Harper was the only child of free African American parents. She was raised by her aunt and uncle after her mother died when Frances was three years old. She attended the Academy for Negro Youth, a school run by her uncle, until the age of 13, and then found domestic work in a Quaker household, where she had access to a wide range of literature. After teaching for two years in Ohio and Pennsylvania, she embarked on a career as a traveling speaker on the abolitionist circuit. She helped slaves escape through the Underground Railroad and wrote frequently for anti-slavery newspapers, earning her a reputation as the mother of African American journalism. A prolific writer, Harper published many collections of poetry, several novels and essay collections. Her short story “The Two Offers” was the first short story published by an African American. Her poetry has been collected in Complete Poems of Frances E.W. Harper (1988, ed. Maryemma Graham), and her prose in A Brighter Coming Day (1990, ed. Frances Smith Foster). She married Fenton Harper in 1860. He brought to the marriage three children of his own, and together they had a daughter. When her husband died in 1864, Harper continued to support her family though speaking engagements. During Reconstruction she was an activist for civil rights, women’s rights, and educational opportunities for all. She was superintendent of the Colored Section of the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Women’s Christian Temperance Union, co-founder and vice president of the National Association of Colored Women, and a member of the American Women’s Suffrage Association. Harper was also the director of the American Association of Colored Youth. #DoBetterAmerica#WHM2019#WomensHistoryMonth#FrancesEllenWatkinsHarper#WomensHistory#BlackGirlMagic#UpliftOurPeople#GetWokeStayWoke#IntersectionalFeminism#Intersectionality#DoBetterQuotes#IolaLeroy#BlackFeminism

✨Malala Yousafzai✨ Born in Pakistan, Yousafzai grew up in Pakistan and loves learning. The Taliban took control of the place she called home and banned girls from going to school but she was determined. She advocated for educating girls and was targeted by the Taliban when they boarded her school bus and shot her three times. In December of 2014 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Currently attending the University of Oxford, she continues to fight for girls worldwide. #whm2019

✨Amandla Stenberg✨ You may have first encountered Amandla Stenberg, 19, when she was just a kid: she famously played Rue in 2012′s smash hit The Hunger Games. Since then, the actor and 30 Under 30 honoree has made a name for herself as one of a group of socially-conscious, outspoken young stars changing a staid industry traditionally led by white men. “Oftentimes when we play black women, we have to play either the pain or the comedy,” Stenberg told Forbes. “Just now are we starting to have three-dimensional, nuanced black characters for young women.” In 2017, she starred in an adaptation of young-adult bestseller Everything, Everything, playing Maddy, a teenage polymath in an interracial relationship. The love story grossed a healthy $61.5 million on a $10 million budget. She has pushed herself beyond film and television, coauthoring the graphic novel series Niobe: She Is Life — the first to be internationally distributed with a black female author, artist and main character. #whm2019

For Women’s History Month, the National Union of Healthcare Workers is highlighting women, both past and present, who were trailblazers in their fields. Lucretia Mott was a co-organizer of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, the first women's rights convention. Mott was also a fierce advocate of the abolitionist movement. #WomensHistoryMonth#WomensHistoryMonth2019#WHM2019#womenleaders#VotingRights#votingmatters#NUHW#WHM

Often mistaken for watercolours, the botanically accurate works are actually made from tiny pieces of paper built up in layers – sometimes using up to 200 paper petals per flower.

Society teaches us that negative emotions should be avoided by staying positive and looking on the bright side. But isn’t there more to it than that? In this TED Talk, Susan David discusses how locking down into ridge responses to emotions by bottling and labeling them as bad or negative does not allow us to effectively deal with the world as it is, or to constructively address our emotions.

March is Women’s History Month & often times we hear about the successful women
March is Women’s History Month & often times we hear about the successful women who have made great strides for women worldwide. Yet, we know that there are many women in our lives that are our hero’s and have paved the way for us. Alpha Eta Alumnae Chapter asked our very own sisters for their testimonials on women that have inspired and change their lives, we will be sharing these submissions with you throughout the month! • • Our neo, Kaycie Rosado (Spring 2018, #2) shares: My mother. She raised me to be a strong, independent, and resilient woman. Growing up, it was just her and I. Although things were tough, she made sure I had everything I needed and that I never went without. My mom also instilled in me the importance and value of having an education. She would volunteer all of her free time to being involved with my schooling; whether it was being room mom or joining committees within the campus or school district. My mom is disabled so being actively involved in these committees was not as easy for her as it was for others, but she did it for me. She taught me the importance of being kind to others, of never giving up, and pursuing my dreams. For all she’s done, I could never repay her; but I strive to make her proud.

Inspiration is a gift that can be shared with others. Sharon Haynes, an administrative assistant in the Department of Community Services who has served BSO and the residents of Broward County for over 20 years, has been inspired by many women in her life. Her mother-in-law Jacqueline Haynes is, to Sharon, the epitome of what a phenomenal, strong African queen should be. Sharon’s own mother has been an inspiration as well. These individuals have shaped her and helped her rise above. It is Sharon’s mission to continue to learn and become an inspiration to others. “I want to teach our children, our young girls and boys, just how important they are and that they matter; to empower women to love themselves and let them know that they can make a difference and become the best at ANYTHING in life.” #WHM2019#womenshistorymonth#womenshistorymonth2019

1915: Tan Teck Neo (1877 – 1978) a key member of Singapore’s high society for many decades, and a group of 20 other women set up the Chinese Ladies Association (CLA) to bring about “the general improvement of young Chinese ladies.” The CLA organized classes in sewing, cooking, and music and raised money for charitable causes. Their first project in 1916 was to raise $6,000 for the purchase of a fighter plane for the British during World War 1. They also raised money for the Red Cross and St John’s Ambulance. A newspaper report at the time noted that it was “the first time that Chinese ladies have come forward to assist in a public charity or other function of that kind.” Teck Neo set up the Mrs. Lee Choon Guan Trust Fund to support charitable efforts and promoted female education by awarding numerous scholarships to students of the Singapore Chinese Girls’ School. She awarded scholarships for midwifery training, donated $5,000 to the building fund of the St. Andrew’s Hospital for Women and Children, was a patron of the Po Leung Kuk, or the Society for the Protection of Women and Children, and was also a board member of the Singapore Chinese Girls School and the Children’s Aid Society. @TwitterSG@BritishRedCross@RedCross#Singapore#WHM2019#WomensHistoryMonth#charities#philanthropy#historyphotographed#giving#grants#500yearsofphilanthropy#historyofgiving#supportwhatmeansmost#nptrust#givingback#charityimpact#charitablegiving history at HistoryofGiving.org
