International Women's Day was first celebrated in 1911 to raise awareness of continued inequality in labor, politics, culture, and society. Over a century later, March 8 is an opportunity to remind ourselves of how far women have come, while also keeping in mind that there is still progress to be made.

To honor important women in our lives, the Photomyne team shared insight into our families' most impactful heroines.

Noa G., influencer marketing manager, loved Grandma Roli more than anything. She was a woman with a heart of gold who always helped others. Ever since Roli passed away, Noa has missed her hugs and all their wonderful moments together.
