Happy Mother's day to the mothers celebrating this day in their countries today - UK, Ireland, and Nigeria -, and Happy Women's History month to every woman all around the world!
March 8th was International Women's day, a day when the whole world got to acknowledge and celebrate women for their strength and determination in fighting tooth and nail for equality and respect in every aspect of life. On this day, women are recognized for their achievements and breakthroughs; political rallies, conferences and theatrical performances are held worldwide in honor of this day.
And so for the rest of this month, the Literary Fiction site will feature articles that celebrate women authors who have come a long way in their writing careers, and we'll discuss the female characters that exhibit the passionate and enduring strength of a real-life woman.
Here's the latest article from the Literary Fiction site at BellaOnline.com.

EDITOR RANDOM FUN ACTIVITY
Let's make a commitment today, that for the rest of this month (and hopefully onwards) we'll go out of our way to make a woman -either one in our lives, or one we happen to come across- feel special, heard, loved, respected. Whether it's your mother, girlfriend/wife, sister, daughter, best friend, grandmother, work colleague, stranger on the bus/train...buy her flowers, go to the grocery store for her, offer her your seat on the train, give her a ride, pay her phone bill for the month...take your pick on the list of things you can do for her, and make her smile! Let's do it, and let's feel good doing it. This week, this month.
