Where there is a woman, there is magic and with that in mind here are the some of the fabulous women who came to Royal Canal Kilcock parkrun on the weekend of International Womens Day!
Here's to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we support them, may we raise them!
A woman is like a teabag - you never know how strong she is until she gets into hot water.
Well behaved women rarely make history.
Representing the cause all wearing pink tshirts today. Pink and proud!
When women support women, incredible things happen.
The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.
In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.
Little girls with dreams become women with a vision.
She believed she could, so she did.
