While we honor women in history throughout the year, March is officially Women’s History Month. Back in our 20’s, the 40 year old version of us seemed so far away. We thought that by 40 we’d have accomplished all of the things we’d set out to do, and be ready to settle into “old age.” Or so we thought. Whether 40’s turning out just as you planned, or you’ve still got a long list of things you’d like to accomplish, you’re never too old, or too young, to make history.
Destined to leave our own mark on history, The Women at Forty Project recognizes and honors the achievements of women, of all ages, around the world. In keeping with that spirit, today we’re spotlighting four women-run organizations that celebrate the power of women. These organizations are changing the world – one child, one person, one issue at a time. They inspire us to want to make our own history. Let them inspire you too… (Image: 3gf, Global Fund for Women grant recipient)
