The Women Who Have Changed The World

Today we’re celebrating?International Day of Peace, and while the world can be a scary place sometimes, we’re reminiscing?on some of the greatest female humanitarian workers who continue to restore our faith that the world is, in fact, a beautiful place.

Panti attends the 2016 IFTA in Dublin

“I have been beaten, spat on, chased, harassed and mocked because of who I am. I have spent most of my life struggling and am finally at a place in my own country, which I love, to be accepted. In a tolerant, respectful debate, I will not allow people who spout hatred and intolerance to go unchecked”

-Queen Panti Bliss

First Lady Michelle Obama Hosts National Student Poets Program With Hip Hop Artist Q-Tip

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own”

-Michelle Obama

Spanish Royals and President of Ireland Meet for Lunch at La Zarzuela Palace

“It is absolutely no accident that the peace and reconciliation, and indeed the economic progress, that eluded us generation after generation for hundreds of years, has at last come to pass in an Ireland where the talents of women are now flooding every aspect of life as never before”?

-Mary McAleese

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you”

– Princess Diana

Delegates Attend The UN Peacekeeping Defence Ministerial

“Without pain, there would be no suffering. Without suffering, we would never learn from our mistakes. To make it right, pain and suffering is the key to all windows, without it, there is no way of life”

-Angelina Jolie

Roosevelt, Eleanor - Politikerin, USA

“It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it. In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility”

-Eleanor Roosevelt

“I was like any other young married woman and was very anxious to have children?but it just wasn’t meant to be. And while I used to get sad about it I look back now and say ‘for God’s sake if I had my own children there was no way I would have been able to devote myself to the charity’. I don’t think it takes a physical umbilical cord to have that close connection with babies and children because I really, honestly believe I’ve felt the complete adoration and love a mother has for her child so many times in my work with the children we’ve helped”

-Adi Roche
