Celebrating International Women’s Day Through the Lens

Daniel Noll and Audrey Scott March 8, 2013 6

Throughout our travels around the world, we continue to meet so many women who, despite hardship, have risen above with an admirable sense of pride and an unassailable courage. With the goal of creating a better life for their children and for themselves, these women challenge prevailing norms and fuel the fire of change and improvement in their communities. They help build a bridge to the future — a brighter future for their children, and one where their daughters may aspire to do things that their mothers could only dream of.

With the photos below, we celebrate the collective spirit of these women and the beauty of their diversity on International Women’s Day.
