Get to know these 10 inspiring Malaysian mums who art with heart

International’s Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8 (and through the entirety of March) and didja know, this year marks exactly 100 years since a bunch of lassies sparked the Russian revolution by demonstrating for “bread and peace” in Saint Petersburg… Seven days later, the Tsar was kicked out, women got to vote and now we commemorate that fateful day as an tribute to the “fairer sex”.  But guess what, I think it’s safe to say no one was kidding on that bit about the hand that rocks the cradle...*cue Beyonce music “Who Run the World?
