Who are the women that you admire? === my best friend who doesn't know how to say no (and she NEEDS to learn)

What changes would you like to see in the lives of women in general? === a little more freedom to be what you want to be and definitely better health care worldwide...

One of the women I admire most is one of my BFFs... a single mom of 2 girls who has put herself through school, obtained her masters degree and lost a major amount of weight.

I think equal pay for equal work worldwide, Molly, and equal opportunity for raises and promotions.

It's great to have a mother who is a role model whom we can admire and look up to.
