t’s time to bring up the F-word. By 2022, the path to gender equality (along with its nuanced intersections with race, class, and sexuality) will still be long and shifting. However, with today’s influential female voices, there is reason to believe that we are on the right track. To honor International Women’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of 22 empowering quotes from feminist trailblazers from various walks of life who have embraced the power of their femininity—and who will inspire you to do the same.
We should honour the women who have come forward in their lives breaking barriers and have created history. Not only because their laurels deserve to be sung but because we are the fastest growing community of the century, we often forget to appreciate the woman we are! It has long been a tradition to celebrate Women’s Day, but have you ever done so in it’s true sense? I believe the answer is no, so this Women’s Day, take some time out of your day to celebrate the woman you are!
