Dear Woman, I Celebrate you

By pearl - January 02, 2017

Women's day is a big deal to me, especially when I was younger, because it guaranteed a day off from school. But as I grew older, I realized the significance of this day. A day to celebrate the woman. A day that signifies freedom and equality. It is just not another day, it is a day to give respect and honor to the wonderful women in our lives.  Today I want to celebrate a very small subset of these women. The Top women in Technology. There are a lot more out there and my hope is for you to be on this list some day.
