celebrating women like you

As you’ll know by now, woman&home is passionate about celebrating women. And in this issue, we’ve really dialled up our coverage of those who inspire and amaze us. First, we are celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale by saying ‘thank you’ to nurses who have dedicated their lives to caring for others. I guarantee you’ll be inspired and uplifted by their stories from page 30. And it’s incredible women like these that neatly bring me to my second point – to remind you this is your last chance to nominate an unsung heroine for our Amazing Women Awards 2020. We’d love to hear about that special woman, or women, who really make a difference in your community. You can find out how to enter on page…

WOMEN WHO CARE Your article The Reason we put Animals First (February) made my heart ache. Yet it also cheered me up to know there is such inspirational kindness to animals in the world. These women deserve our support. More animal stories, please. Ruth Short, by email IDENTITY ISSUES I was dismayed by how Susanna Walker began her article (February): ‘Like every other adopted person, I have always struggled with my identity.’ Not all adoptees, including myself, feel like this. I’m glad she later felt regret for hurting her adoptive parents . Jean, by email UNLIKELY REBELS I found your article We’re all Fighting Climate Change (January) so timely. I’ve ditched buying fast fashion and wet wipes, and I’m working with my family to abandon single-use plastic. I have great respect for the inspiring women who campaign…
