“We never know how high we are
Til we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan.
Our statures touch the skies”
– Emily Dickinson, American Poet

Today marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day and there are events taking place all over the world to celebrate this day in history. President Obama called on Americans everywhere to take notice of the extraordinary accomplishments of women who have shaped this country. Hillary Clinton launched the 100 Women Initiative: Empowering Women and Girls through International Exchanges. 100 women gathered from 92 countries to begin this exchange. The number 100 is the number 1 with two zeroes. The number 1 is representative of the power to be individualistic and independent. Follow that with double zeros which intensifies the number 1 and the zero symbolizes the continuation of something that never ends. 92 countries participated – The number 92 reduces to the number 11 vibration. The number 11 symbolizes the attainment of enlightenment through inspiration and even cosmic consciousness.
March 8, 1911
This is the date it all began. The International Women’s Day launch was March 8, 1911 which was a 14/5 universal day number in a 12/3 universal year. With the 14/5 vibration we have a number which typifies social obligations and political enterprises. It was a universal year that teemed with lots of ideas, energy and a vitality that was about to break barriers for women – a movement that has a legacy that will continue until the end of time. This number indicates that it will take strength to overcome but there is no limit to achievement. The number 5 is a number that reminds us that freedom is absolutely essential. The 12/3 vibration is the number of inner strength through unusual experiences. It is a number centered on divergent belief systems.
March 8, 2011
This day in history is a universal 15/6 day number – a number that reminds us of responsibility, success and being dynamic and strong.
The Top 100 Women List
This list reads like a line from an announcement at the Oscars “In a category of the top 100 women achievers of all time. And the winner goes to…”
Of course this list is too long to mention all the names here, but you can see the list by clicking on this link. The list includes women that are activists, in the art and film industry, business and trade unions, the law and politics, science and medicine, sports, technology, television, writing and academia. I think this covers all the bases. Women have been blazing trails since Eve had the audacity to show up and take her place in history. Woman have continued to push past the barriers in ways we could have never imagined, but yet we are witnessing achievement from women in a category all by itself – womanhood.
