Inspiring women

Pointing out that March was Women’s History Month, an e-mail from Dottie DeHart, DeHart & Company Public Relations listed 10 women and lessons we can learn from them.

The list came from Roxanne Rivera, creator of nocryinginconstruction.com, a Web site aimed at women currently working or planning work in a male-dominated industry, said the release.

I thought the list was interesting. See what you think:

1. Eleanor Roosevelt. "Never back down from your principles."

2. Margaret Thatcher. "Never compromise your own beliefs in order to please people."

3. Mary Kay Ash. "Trust your instincts."

4. Harriet Beecher Stowe. "You’re never too busy to change the world."

5. Babe Didrikson Zaharias. "Don’t Let setbacks keep you from getting ahead."

6. Golda Meir. "Hard work pays off."

7. Oprah Winfrey. "Be open to learning from others."

8. Mother Teresa. "Accept no limitations.

9. Amelia Earhart. "Know the value of tenacity."

10. Sandra Day O’Connor. "Don’t hesitate to break down barriers."

Would you add any names to the list and why?

Are there women who have inspired you personally and why?

Have a good weekend.

We are headed out and about to cover: a Wild Game Dinner at Jeems Bayou ... a reception at First Methodist Church, Greenwood, to recognize its architect Edward Neild, the idea of Greenwood resident Mary Wark ... a glittery engagement announcement party.

I'll report back on Monday.
