Honor a Woman Leader, Join The Women Inspire Roundup! #IWD2014 #WHM2014

Today, March 8, 2014 is International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to celebrating women’s economic, political and social achievements. In honor of this day and Women’s History Month, the USC School of Social Work is hosting a blog carnival focused on women who inspire us to take action—to fight for a cause, to make a difference in our communities or to prevent inequality. Starting today and ending on March 31, 2014, we will host a roundup of all of your blog submissions that reflect the #WomenInspire theme.

If you’re interested in taking part in this campaign, please grab a #WomenInspire badge and take a look at our participation guidelines on our Women Inspire Campaign Call For Submissions page.

We will update our roundup with blog day submissions between now and the end of March. We invite you to actively comment on one another’s posts and share these stories across social media platforms using the hashtag #womeninspire.

Below are the blog submissions that celebrate women of character, courage, and commitment:
