Women Who Inspire

Okay, Ladies, It's been a long time coming but I ran across a wonderful blog today called Girls Lunch Out and I loved this section they had so I "borrowed" a few of their women of history that I feel fit the bill to inspire other women to be confident, strong, great mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, grandmothers and friends! So read up! (again this is borrowed content)

Coretta Scott King (1927-2006): Known to many as the wife of the late, great Martin Luther King, Jr., Mrs. King was a spectacular woman who, after her husband’s death, continued the fight against racism. In the 1960s, Coretta Scott King became one of the leaders of the African American Civil Rights Movement. She spent the rest of her life advocating world peace and fighting for gender equality. She was also a great mom who raised four upstanding children, all of which followed their parents’ example and became civil rights activists.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, “Jackie O” (1929-1994):  Jackie O was the wife of the late president, John F. Kennedy. Prior to her husband’s assassination in 1963, Jackie O was already in the spotlight. She was a fabulous fashion maven who was greatly influencing the runways with her classic style and elegance. Upon her husband’s death, however, Jackie O took on a new role—the widow with two small kids to raise. Despite the many trials she had to face, Jackie O carried herself with tremendous grace and raised two stellar kids. Today, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis remains one of the world’s beloved style icons.

Diana, Princess of Wales, “Lady Di, Princess Di” (1961-1997): Like Jackie O, Princess Diana was well-loved by the entire world. She was a style icon, a humanitarian, and a wonderful mother to her two kids, princes William and Harry. Despite the very public collapse of her marriage and the never-ending rumors, she bore herself well, continued to support various charities, and remained a good mom to her kids up until the end.
