To celebrate "International Women's Day" on March 8, we put together a list of some of the most inspiring Guideposts stories by women in the past year. From calling out domestic violence to surviving a brain tumor, we honor these women who make the world a better, kinder place.

Writer and comedian Jeannie Gaffigan underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor in 2017, an experience she shared in the November 2019 issue of Guideposts.
