International Women’s Day is a blessing and curse. It’s a blessing to recognize these heroes and a curse that they aren’t household names. If you recognize some of these names, consider yourself enlightened. If not, we have found some great stories about women heroes who have contributed to their country, their field of study, and often, both.
We chose to highlight these women because they represent the six heroes groups that we serve at Homes for Heroes. During our search, we found so many more.
