Happy International Women's Day

Posted by MarlenaBooks Admin on

Wednesday March 8 is International Women's Day. Here at Marlena Books, women are integral to our operations. Marlena Books is named after two inspirational women, ran by a female founder, supported by incredible female mentors, has a mostly female team, and is encouraged by an extended network of inspiring women. Today, we say thank you; for teaching us, caring for us, raising us, inspiring us, picking us up and letting us grow. Empowered women empower women, and Marlena Books is better for knowing each of you. Check out some of these amazing women below, and leave a comment about who inspires you!
