6 Women Who Made a Difference in the Lives of Children

National Women’s History Month is a great time to celebrate women who have made a difference, not only in the world as a whole, but also in the lives of children. Much has been said about women and mothers through the years. Brigham Young shared the impact all good women have on humanity when he said, “You educate a man; you educate a man; You educate a woman; You educate a generation.” Speaking to the mass accomplishment of women, Margaret Thatcher said, “If you want anything said, ask a man; If you want anything done, ask a woman.” While it’s very true that much good comes from men, there is a gentle yet powerful force, innate in women, that creates amazing results. In this slideshow, we celebrate the value that six incredible women have brought to the world—particularly, the world of children.
