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.
