The Young and the Restless actor Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) has suffered the loss of grandmother who passed away at age of 97. In a touching Instagram post with a picture of his mother and his grandmother Goddard shares, "#InternationalWomensDay"
We extend our deepest sympathies to him and his family for their loss!
My Grandma was born in 1913 long before women had the right to vote. She fought the stigma of inequality for years and in 1939 when World War 2 broke out she and women like her all around the world went to work in the factories to do the jobs of the men who went off to fight. This incredible woman gave birth to my mother, and was raised with the knowing that with hard work, self belief and a strong moral conviction a woman could do and be anything. In the 1970’s my mother began to follow in the footsteps of her mother when she joined “The Women’s Liberation Movement” and advocated for women’s rights and equal pay. My mum didn’t have daughters but sons… and we were blessed to grow up and watch her tireless campaign to shatter the injustice of gender discrimination. Today… my grandmother has passed, all be it after a long and marvelous life of 97 years, and my mother is 76, and a living role model for the generations of women who now carry the torch that not only my Grandmother, and Mother but millions of other women through out history lit all those years ago. So, to all the strong independent, loving women that to this very day fight for change… know that you are loved, cherished and respected. #InternationalWomensDay
