Tell Us About the Strong Women in Your Life

At Mugg & Bean, we believe you don’t have to look far to find women who serve as a source of inspiration. These kinds of women aren’t confined to boardrooms, science labs, and classrooms. They can be found in your living room, community centre, or office. And we believe you shouldn’t be the only one who knows about their generosity; the rest of the world could learn a thing or two from the example they set.

This Women’s Month, we’d like to hear about the exceptional women in your life. Nominate an inspiring woman in your community so that they can

Let’s keep supporting women!

Strong communities are filled with strong women. Think about the different kinds of women who keep society going: The mothers who bring us into the world, the community leaders who serve as a voice for the vulnerable, or the industry leaders who inspire little girls to dream big.

How Strong Women Shape Society

Throughout history, women have been a central part of ensuring the stability, progress, and long-term development of their communities. While they’ve done these in different capacities, there are four kinds of women who have been key to the development of countries, continents, and the world at large.

In almost every corner of the world, women are the primary caretakers of children and the elderly. Women guide children into adulthood and often help the elderly enjoy their golden years as comfortably as possible. Without them, childhood would be filled with confusion and old age would be unbearable.

Think back to your schooldays. How many of your teachers were women? We’re willing to bet a Famous Giant Muffin that most of the faces that greeted you when you stepped into class belonged to women. Even at crèches, most of the people who work tirelessly to lay the foundation of lifelong learning are women.

Working Woman
Employees & Entrepreneurs

The workforce and business world would be nothing without women. Besides the skills they bring, women who venture into male-dominated industries bring to life a truth we often take for granted: There’s no cap on success. Each one of us is an asset with something of value to bring to the table. Do not limit yourself to the expectations of others, and the world becomes your oyster.
