This International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8, comes at a time of strong determination and a “renewed sense of urgency.” In honor of this day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements and contributions of women, many travel brands around the world are shining a spotlight on female trailblazers. While some brands tried (and missed) the mark on social media today, we found these to be pretty inspiring.

First up – Joanne Borg, who saw a team of male mechanics in 1977 and thought, “I can do that job.” https://t.co/LhQ8OTPJWe pic.twitter.com/SExN8xI2rm
