A month to celebrate women

It’s March, and that means that International Women’s Day is upon us! Over the past decade or so, Women’s Day has gone from being completely off my radar screen, to a red-letter day in my calendar. There are lots of reasons why: from watching a woman make history as Costa Rica’s president, to watching a woman fail to achieve that same feat in the United States, to becoming a mother, to the #MeToo movement.

Throughout this month of the Daily Boost, I’ll share stories from “Ticas sin Miedo,” information about people making a difference for women in Costa Rica, and more.

Who’s the Costa Rican woman you most admire? I’d love to hear about her.

I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world. Sign up (top right of this page) to receive a little dose of inspiration every weekday in your mailbox; tell a friend; check out past posts; and please connect with me on Instagram or Facebook! Each month in 2020 has a monthly theme, and February’s is marriage equality, so scroll back through the month to see several posts highlighting people and organizations working on behalf of this issue in Costa Rica.
