International Women’s Day

Shaping the lives of generations of women, numerous Welsh women have been inspirational in facing hardships, overcoming barriers and creating world-firsts. Wales Online has compiled a list of 100 Welsh women who have had a monumental impact on the lives of millions of women through their trail blazing attitude and their ability to persevere and overcome gender barriers which have enabled many women of today to gain access to areas which were once men-only.
