March marks Women’s History Month in the UK, US and Australia. It coincides with International Women’s Day on 8th March and this year’s theme is ‘Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment’.

This is a time to celebrate the achievements of women and bring women’s issues to the forefront. Now available is the list of 2014 honorees and Barack Obama’s presidential proclamation.

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is ‘Inspiring Change’. The culmination of these events has seen famous women standing up for their rights and offering feminist critique of the film industry.

For all the people involved and honoured we salute you. It has been an amazing year for women and that doesn’t begin and end in March 2014.

This is certainly the year of iconic women in music. We all know about Bey but young songstress, Taylor Swift, has been named as the highest earning star under 30 by Forbes.

Meanwhile, Blondie and Dolly Parton have been named to play Glastonbury 2014. Following this, Kate Bush tickets just sold out in fifteen minutes, according to The Guardian. Bravo to all!

Not forgetting Mother’s Day this Sunday so be good to your Mums. And Mums be good to yourself.
