Throughout history there are women who have changed the world In many ways. Fighting for justice, fighting for freedom and taking time to care for those in need. Women who each in there own way have made a difference. with them the world is a better place. let this be the place to honour them. So I invite you all to join this project.

A travers l'histoire, il existe des femmes qui ont particulièrement marqué leur époque. Elle se sont distinctes par leur combat pour la justice ou pour la liberté, par leur contribution à la société, par leur inspiration. Des femmes qui, de leur façon et par les moyens dont elles disposaient, on fait la différence. Sans elles, ce monde serait bien différent. Peut-être nous ne pensons pas à elles au quotidien, tout simplement parce que leur réussite est devenue un acquis. Permettons à ce projet de mettre ses femmes à l'honneur. Nous vous invitons donc tous à joindre ce projet.
