Happy International Women's Day! It seems appropriate that it coincides with many children going back to school releasing lots of mothers (and, admittedly, fathers) from home school tyranny and back into work. We loved all the Little People, Big Dreams and Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls World Book Day costumes last week - those life stories are so inspiring. Here are a few more empowering buys to inspire and celebrate the next generation of strong women.
