You remember vividly as a child what it was like to cry and cry until your mother came to your side, and with pursed lips, she kissed the “boo boo” away from your knee where you fell. She is there to tell you that everything is going to be okay, and that while you’re in pain now, it won’t last forever. That’s what it means to be a woman.
You met a girl who didn’t talk to anyone as she read all the books in the library, sprawling out notes and pages across desks as she did her homework and calculated new theories of how the world operates. She got straight A’s, and she graduated with ease before excelling toward a degree in college. That’s what it means to be a woman.
You met a boss who was firm but fair. They ran the entire company essentially, and even on their lunch break, they were working. They did it all with a smile, and without even asking, you tell them “thanks” for being a great boss. A respectful human being. That’s what it means to be a woman.
The girl behind the bar serving you drinks. The girl sitting with her friends at a table drinking. The girl who gets promoted, and the woman who changes careers. The mother who wakes up at 5:00 AM to get things ready for her children, and the lady who sleeps in after an evening workout. That’s what it means to be a woman.
This International Women’s Day, be sure to thank and appreciate the women in your life, whatever role they play. Are they your mother? Are they your sister? Are they your coworker, boss, colleague or assistant? This is a day for celebrating those who identify as female, and how amazing they are.
Look at the most influential women in history. Rosa Parks started a civil rights movement. Susan B. Anthony changed the face of women’s suffrage. Cleopatra negotiated relationships between Egypt and the Romans on top of speaking up to nine different languages. Amelia Earhart pioneered the flight industry. Mary Wollstonecraft logged the history of the French Revolution. Nora Ephron wrote screenplays that gave women the voice they deserve in film and theater. Malala Yousafzai spoke out for education for women, and she unapologetically risked her life for it. Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman in space, proving that she could do anything a man could. Frida Kahlo painted her agony away in art, and she became renown for her artistic prowess. Harriet Tubman freed thousands of slaves as a spy for the United States Army.
What do all these women have in common? They are all understated pioneers of their times, and together, they did more than most do in a lifetime. This is what International Women’s Day is all about. So, how do you say “thank you” to the most influential woman in your life?
A card is cheap. Monetary gifts could be offensive. Simply saying it may not be enough to get across how much you appreciate them existing in your life. You want to give them something tangible so that every time they look at this thing that you give them, they’re able to understand how incredible they are for being a woman, and more importantly, a human being.
Why not try photo-to-text? With just an image of your most influential, female figure, you are able to upload it directly to the website with ease. Not sure what file type your photo is in? No worries! JPG, PNG, anything! Photo-to-text has you covered, but now you may want to make sure that this image says something.
Simply type in all the words you want this image to say. What do you want your influential figure to know? You could explain to them how much you appreciate their presence in your life, or you could simply let them know that you’re proud of who they are. You could let them know that you’re proud to work for them, or you’re proud of the work that they’ve done while they’ve worked for you. You can let them know that they’ll always be your sister, and you can let them know that they’ll always be your best friend.

As you give her the gift, remember to say “thank you” for everything she has done for you. Remember that International Women’s Day is about her, and be sure that you communicate just how much you appreciate her for being in your life. Tell her all the things she’s done for you, and let her know how different your life would be without her. After all, it’s International Women’s Day. Time to get out there and celebrate!
