In honor of International Women's Day, RAK recognizes the words of three inspirational women.

This year, The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation celebrates International Women’s Day by recognizing women who provide inspiration and encouragement to the next generation of World Changers! 

Rita Pierson worked as a teacher, counselor and assistant principal before leaving the profession to lead professional development workshops and seminars for educators. Her belief in the importance of validating students and showing them that they matter was the focus of her inspiring TED Talk.

Hannah Brencher is the beautiful mind behind The World Needs More Love Letters.  Not only did she provide an inspiring TED Talk, she was also The Random Acts of Kindness Foundations Challenge Winner in 2013

Debbie Sterling is an engineer & the founder & CEO of GoldieBlox, construction and toy sets that help young girls build and create amazing things while giving them the confidence to excel in “male-dominated” areas of science, technology, engineering and math. In her TED Talk, Debbie talks about narrowing the gender gap in STEM.

Can you think of a woman who has inspired you to change the world? Why don't you let them know?
