Earlier this week was International Women's Day! We admire women's strength, diligence, and endurance so much. Part of our mission is to empower women to be the unique, strong world changers that they were made to be.
The truth is, we are standing on the shoulders of giants. We would not be here today if those who came before us had not been courageous barrier breakers. They faced discrimination and inequality for us to prove that women are equal to men.
Here are some women who inspire us so that you can be inspired today!
Katharine Hepburn was a strong leader in the movement towards it being acceptable for women to wear pants! Go girl, wear that 'masculine' clothing.
Amelia Earhart was the first women to fly solo across the Atlantic and to fly solo from Hawaii to California.
"Please know that I am aware of the hazards. I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others."
Rosa Parks was the start of a revolution. Already the secretary for the NAACP at the time, Rosa Park's "no" was heard around the world.
And did you know, it was the Women's Political Council that helped mobilize the Montgomery Bus Boycott? Yea, go women.
Malala Yousafzai is best known for advocating for the education of young women and girls. She has been writing about life under the Taliban since she was thirteen. She is the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Harriet Tubman helped escaped slaves get from the South to the North. Rather than live a life of freedom in the North, she continued to risk her life for other still in the South. She brought over three hundred people to freedom.
Susan B. Anthony was not only an advocate from women's rights but at the age of seventeen was an anti-slavery advocate. She helped found the National Women's Suffrage Association. She was even arrested for voting before the passing of the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment, which she heavily advocated for.
Last on our list, but certainly not the last one, Michelle Obama. As an eloquent leader and former first lady, she continues to inspire millions. Her advocacy did not start with her husband's presidency, however. In 1964 she said, "There are still many causes worth sacrificing for, so much history yet to be made."
Much love and empowerment to you, there is history yet to be made.
