ONE Act a Week: Which ‘ordinary woman’ inspires you to be a better activist?

Action: 32. Time: 15 minutes. Level of difficulty: Moderate. For the results of last week’s action, click here.

In honor of International Women’s Day coming up next Thursday, March 8, we’re asking our ONE members to answer this question: Which “ordinary woman” inspires you to be a better activist?

Vaccine tour Edinburgh
Which woman in your life makes you want to do more of this? Activists at a vaccine tour of Edinburgh.
We’ve already asked our ONE Moms and NGO partners to answer this question. Earlier this week, ONE Mom Elisa Morgan wrote about her friend Jane, who passed away from cancer on International Women’s Day nearly two years ago. And Shayne Moore reflected on a fellow mom blogger who started an anti-modern day slavery website after hearing a shocking statistic.

So now, it’s your turn. Tell us about an ordinary woman in your life who has helped you become a better activist. Or, tell us about an ordinary woman who is doing amazing things in the fight against global poverty. Either way, we’d love to hear your story. Share it with us in the form below:

On International Women’s Day, we’ll collect all your stories, put them into a document, and share it with you on the ONE Blog. We’ll also highlight a few of our favorite answers.

Good luck, and we look forward to reading your stories!

ONE Act a Week is a weekly anti-poverty action to get you thinking, talking, sharing and learning about our issues. If we all just donated a few moments of our time each week, we can make some serious magic happen.
