Surprisingly enough, even our heroes look up to someone. 

Navigate your way through our Map of Gratitude to see who inspired the women who inspire us.

Lily Ledbetter worked for 19 years at a Goodyear factory only to learn from an anonymous tipster an alarming fact: despite receiving a “Top Performer” award in 1996, she had been making far less than her male colleagues for the entirety of her employment at Goodyear. The discrepancy amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars. She wasn't going to be quiet about it. #equalpay   #equalpayday   #lilyledbetter   #genderequality   #wagegap

This is an inspiration.  We loose site on our dreams, when we have families, and other responsibilities and find ourselves in the everyday grind of life.  Thank you for reminding us, to dream, and dream big.

"Get the hell out of MY race!" 

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer became the first woman to officially enter the Boston Marathon by signing up with her initials. Unfortunately, one official was not happy to see a woman running the historically all-male race.

On This Day 1939:

With the support of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, Marian Anderson, an African-American contralto and one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century, sings an Easter Sunday concert for more than 75,000 at Lincoln Memorial, and a radio audience in the millions.

The historic event occurred after the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to let Anderson to sing to an integrated audience in Constitution Hall.

Women continue to only make an average of 77 cents for every dollar that men earn. 

On Equal Pay Day, President Barack Obama will bypass Congress to make moves to help close the wage gap.

For Equal Pay Day, the day on the year’s calendar that marks the approximate extra time the average American woman would need to earn as much as the average man did in the prior year, President Obama plans to bypass the "do-nothing" Congress to promote equal pay with two new executive actions.
