Michelle Mouton and co-driver Fabrizia Pons at the 1984 RAC Rally.

I love this day. I’ve had a single mother since I was 9, and I have witnessed so much courage and strength that I can never hope to match. It takes balls to be a woman today, more than ever before.

And guys, remember to do your best to help out, respect, support and challenge women in your life every single day, not just bring them flowers on the 8th of March.
