Every 8th of March it’s International Women’s Day. It’s one of my favorite days, because it reminds me how far we’ve come – and that we still have a long way to go…
To commemorate this important day, all collages in this batch feature women writers from Sweden. I hope you have a super lovely day by treating yourself to some “me time”. Read a great book. Take a bubble bath. Or why not give yourself the gift of time to do something creative?
I love reading and writing, as you might know, so to pick female authors from last century, was not hard. Also, at University I studied literature and came to know a few of these Swedish authors. My favorite is Selma LagerlŲf. This lovely one:
Selma is the author of many great books, my favorite is The Emperor of Portugallia, which you should pick up today if you haven’t read it yet. It’s beautiful, sad and very gripping. A must-read. If you want to learn more about Sweden along with your kids, you should read Selma’s The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. :-)
Now here are some more authors, and in case anyone want to guess who they are I’m leaving their names out:
Then I run out of images that I thought fitting for this series, so the last one is a celebration of all the anonymous women acting in the world at this time (and still), not daring to reveal who they are. Or maybe trusting that their books would sell better (or at all) with a male pseudonym!
Here are all this week’s collages together as one image, in case you want to pin it to your Pinterest board for inspiration:
Happy International Women’s Day!

Thanks for joining me and my fellow creators on this year’s big creative journey! Feel free to also check out week 4 in 2013 from back when I did a similar project in 2013. And if you’re new, I’ve got the best “women craft introduction” here. Hehe.
Now, let’s celebrate girl power and women power!
