Remembering Amazing Women on International Women’s Day

victorjara42's Blog

For international women’s day, I want to remember 15 women who have inspired me one way or another through their activism, music, poetry, painting or spirituality. All of these women and countless more give me the source of inspiration and desire to continue planting seeds of hope and compassion in this chaotic world of ours.
In no particular order, here they are:

Comandanta Ramona

Suheir Hammad

Violeta Parra

Miriam Makeba

Mercedes Sosa

Wangari Maathai

Mother Teresa

Dorothy Day

Frida Kahlo

Anita Tijoux

Joan Baez

Las Jilguerillas

Julieta Venegas

Tracy Chapman

Sweet Honey in the Rock
(Song in honor of Ella Baker)

Aqui les dejo esta cancion de Dos Vientos De Voz Y Fuego que se llama Porque Esto Ya Comenzo. Esta cancion esta en el CD, EZLN: El Fuego y la Palabra en el disco de la Dignidad. Disfruten de esta rola.
