For 2016, after much introspection and thought I decided that it’s a wonderful opportunity to honor the wonderful women blogger community at wordpress whom I have shared many amazing successes and great comradeship in the social justice mission. If it was not the medium of wordpress and online blogging sphere, I wouldn’t have met and known such awe aspiring, jaw dropping and fascinating work done by these women. I recommend that readers should definitely check out their amazing work in the virtual sphere.

These women…
