Today is International Women's Day, and we thought the best way we could help honor that, is by doin shout outs online, and then reading them out on the air. Who would you honor?

JStew: Man... Where does one even begin with this? I'd give every women I know a shout out if I could. Just about all the women in my life are of the highest possible caliber. Obviously, my mom. She's the strongest woman I know. If you can think of any kind of life-battle that needs to be fought, she's done it. My wife... That woman puts up with me day in, and day out. That deserves a trophy all by itself. My sister, absolutely. She's a teacher and puts up with everyone else's kids all day, and somehow does it with a smile. And as always, my partner-in-crime, Ms. Cori. A single mom of four, who constantly shames most moms in her ability to parent in the most awesome ways. I could go on and on and on, and probably should. But let's give other people a chance here, right?

Cori: I'll begin at the beginning with my mom. She's been an amazing example of resilience, strength and love. Then there's my sister--she is one of the most selfless human beings you'll ever meet. For someone who typically never really had a lot of "girl" friends growing up, I have a small tribe of women who I consider close friends in adulthood--and I have come to respect and cherish for their amazing kindness, strength and generosity. Their wisdom, their love, their loyalty, their prayers...they keep me going. Finally, to those women whom I see but may not know, who are showing up for their families, taking the time to do their best at being wives, mothers, daughters, inspire me daily. I feel lucky, as I had such strong female examples growing up, that I never really considered being a woman as a roadblock for anything. And while I may have faced situations where I was underestimated because I'm a girl, it's been my pleasure to prove those folks wrong, every step of the way. I only have the confidence to do so, because strong women in my life went before me and showed me how.

LOOK: Milestones in women's history from the year you were born

Women have left marks on everything from entertainment and music to space exploration, athletics, and technology. Each passing year and new milestone makes it clear both how recent this history-making is in relation to the rest of the country, as well as how far we still need to go. The resulting timeline shows that women are constantly making history worthy of best-selling biographies and classroom textbooks; someone just needs to write about them.

Scroll through to find out when women in the U.S. and around the world won rights, the names of women who shattered the glass ceiling, and which country's women banded together to end a civil war.
