The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that International Women’s Day was bittersweet for one CBS soap star. On Thursday, Daniel Goddard took a moment to reflect on a tough loss. His grandmother passed away a few years back, but her memory lives on. Goddard wanted to fill Y&R fans in on what an awesome lady she was. His social media posts offered a glimpse of what she stood for.
On Instagram, Goddard shared a sweet pic and told a story about his grandmother’s life. She was born in 1913 and “fought the stigma of inequality for years.” Goddard certainly respected his beloved grandma’s strength and can-do spirit.
“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,” Goddard said. He also gave a shout-out to his “mum” for continuing the battle for women’s rights.
Goddard pointed out that his own mother had sons instead of daughters, but she still taught them to take a stand. “We were blessed to grow up and watch her tireless campaign to shatter the injustice of gender discrimination,” Goddard said. He added that his mother is “a living role model for the generations of women who now carry the torch.”
Of course, Goddard’s grandma was one of the amazing ladies who lit the fire. He revealed that she passed away at the age of 97, so losing her must’ve been a difficult blow for the family. However, Goddard will always look back on his grandmother’s sacrifices and struggles. She fought for the good of those who came after her and that’s worth celebrating.
Goddard wrapped up his Instagram post with a message for females everywhere. “To all the strong independent, loving women that to this very day fight for change… know that you are loved, cherished and respected,” Goddard said. Many Young and the Restless viewers appreciated Goddard’s tribute. It was nice of him to honor his loved ones on this special day.

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
