Women and the World
Here at Kindhood, we love supporting parents as they raise the next generation of world-changers!
Today is International Women's Day, when we celebrate the women who shaped our world as it is today. Kindhood HQ gathered to share our thoughts about impactful women with you!
We also believe in showing appreciation, and we love sharing tips on how to cultivate respect for women in your kids! Sarah also shared how she commemorates women in her everyday life:
Today, we at Kindhood are affirming the contributions of one particular woman to our planet and our oceans. Without further ado, Kindhood presents .... (drumrolll, please):
Rachel Carson (1907-1964) was a fellow water-lover. Her mother helped her develop a deep love of nature that would shape the rest of her life.
Rachel focused on the world she loved, writing books about nature, researching as a marine scientist, and becoming a political activist.
She believed that humans are just one part of nature, but with the power to change it. With that power comes a responsibility to care for our world carefully.
Through her writings on the ocean and wildlife, Rachel became a trusted voice in the environmental movement that is still ongoing today. She always spoke the truth, even when it was risky to her career. Her efforts are part of the reason we no longer use DDT as pest control, and also why we are in love with the sea.
Rachel changed the world, but it started with her parents cultivating a love of nature. Her story shows how waves of kindness can reshape the world.Subscribe to our newsletter for more kind kid tips.
