You can ignore her, tease her, bypass or try to stop her — but GIRLS, those strong determined type, will always run your life. We used to be called the weaker sex but now we’ve evolved and compensated in so many more ways that the only thing weak about us is still an inhibition towards instant leadership; that, in ways we cannot always understand, is a role that is offered to men first, like a glove.
In a paternalistic world, competing as women is always a backstory of trying times and failure..and that whatever success achieved is always hard-earned and forever-cherished. Remember how these women inspired and motivated us to brave our passion? (http://www.viralnova.com/important-women/)
Oprah Winfrey‘s rag-to-riches to become the first African-American woman billionaire embodies the American Dream and encompasses the Woman of the World ideal.
In 1967, when women were not into sports, Katherine Switzer became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon, even if the (male) race organizers tried to stop her mid-race.
And who could forget Amelia Earhart as the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in 1928. She attempted a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937, but mysteriously disappeared.
From our own backyard, we even have everyday heroines in our midst who prove that our place in the sun is no longer a question of gender. http://wethepvblic.com/9-strong-independent-filipinas-who-inspire-every-day/#.WBcJMfl97IU
Charo Santos-Concio is an accomplished Filipina media executive, host, occasional actress, television and film producer.
Lea Salonga does everything from acting, coaching and judging on TV, waxing records, to doing movies and plays nowadays. But eternally note-worthy was her phenomenal award-winning role as Kim in the worldwide famous Miss Saigon.
Ani De Leon-Brown is the most down-to-earth female coach-triathlete in the planet. Marriage, family and motherhood have only paved the way for this podiumer to achieve more and help even others better.
A few years ago, Mish Maravilla was a head-turner in races for her beauty and performance. But she made a choice to prioritize family so everything else took a backseat, except being an ambassador-advocate of breastfeeding, after she gave birth to Alessandra Michelle almost two years ago.

March is International Women’s Month but here’s the final salvo this year, at celebrating womanity in the most fun way! Let’s RUN THE WORLD GIRLS! on November 20, 2016 at Camp Aguinaldo QC.
Empowered and highly inspired female runners take a shot at wearing a tutu on as they navigate a 7.5KM ot 15KM course.
Unique also to this race as it is to most women, is our leaning towards a buddy or a bestfriend in life, hence RTWG offers a 15KM Buddy category.
