Today, we celebrate women. Wednesday March 8 2017 marks the 103rd official International Women’s Day, and what an occasional it is this year, ladies! Harkening back to the events these day was created to originally celebrate, women across the United States and wearing red and going on strike to also celebrate “A Day Without Women.” And BOTH of these events of course happen in the midst of Women’s History Month. Although I will be working today (but only at ONE of my three jobs!), this week I prepared to celebrate the day by compiling a list of 15 inspirational quotes by truly trailblazing women in our history and current times. You’ll find them, along with snazzy inspirational graphics (made by yours truly on my favorite design apps, Canva and Typorama), below.
To me, feminism is for everyone, from any time, and its been a long and continuous journey. In this selection of 15, I’ve tried to capture women of different ages, times, races, vocations, sexualities, and more, but I know there are so so so many women not on this list. I’d love for you to add to the collection yourself by commenting below with a quote from one of your favorite inspiring females! For my next inspirational-quotes round up, I may just graphic-a-fy them. 😉 Happy International Women’s Day, to all the women that have been, are now, and will be! The human race literally wouldn’t exist without you. And for more reasons than the fact that you can grow life <3
