Women Of Courage: Appreciation For Those Who Shared In 2019. 75/2020.

Women Of Courage: Appreciation For Those Who Shared In 2019. 75/2020.

The Women of Courage Series has now concluded.

I like many was sad to see it end, but with no further contributions waiting in the drafts area of my blog and no-one coming forward with their stories after the invitation, it was wrap time! I certainly am delighted too, that 55 women DID share their stories and they are incredibly varied too. But with one theme: courage!

It ran from May 2019 until September 2020 with breaks at certain times. The backstory is here.

The message I added to each post is this:

Courage is strength in the face of pain or grief. It’s doing something that frightens you. We face situations that demand courage every day. These situations provide us with choices, and the way we respond to those choices determines our future. Dayne Shuda.


In 2019 I began with my post, and then numbered each person from #1 onwards. The colour I used in 2019 was this one.

In 2020 I changed to red!

Women of Courage 2019 Series.

One woman’s story was shared anonymously in 2019. #25.

  1. Thanks for sharing these stories again Denyse! What a great series to be included in 🙂

    • Thank you so much, Deb. It was, as you know, a great project and so many women were courageous enough to share their stories! As we know you did too!

  2. This was such a great series. I remember how honoured I felt to have my story shared along with these amazing women. Well done

    • Thank you so much Jennifer. I love now that I have treasure trove of stories of all kinds here on the blog for anyone to come and read and maybe re-read their own.

      It has been a privilege to do this series as it has worked out…over 2 years. I will have the 2020 series up next week.


  3. Thank you! And what a list of amazing women with stories to share. I can also see I’ve missed a few I might dip into…

    • I am glad you see that there are many here with those amazing stories and along with your story, all are valued for their vulnerability in sharing here.

      I like the fact that they are all now on one page for easy access and can be dipped into with ease over time.

      Thank you Lydia.
