In our everyday life, we come across many women who inspire us. As individuals, we can take inspiration from our neighbour, our mother, that one teacher who stood out from the rest, that team lead who offers a helping hand or compassion when needed, that nurse or that brainy scientist. Some women inspire a section, or a few while there are many who inspire a whole lot of people, a society or even an entire nation.
