I LOVE being a woman! 🙂 I wish all of the women all over the world a sense of empowerment and confidence on this day where we celebrate women and women’s rights!
Here are a few of my favorite, inspirational quotes:
“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.”—Beyoncé
“A woman is like a tea bag—you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” —Eleanor Roosevelt
“There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no for an answer.” —Rihanna
Throughout history, women have been viewed as inferior. It’s hard to believe that women weren’t allowed to vote until the 20th century. International Women’s Day is about taking the time to remember and be grateful for the fact that we DO have so many rights that the women before us did not. We have the right to vote, to have any career we choose, a right to use contraception, a right to choose your own partners, a right to refuse sex or marriage, the right to choose to be child-free, and the right to create your own life rather than only be allowed to be a man’s possession and stay home making babies and taking care of the household.
International Women’s Day is about remembering all of that and also the fact that there are millions of women in the world who still don’t have these rights. 🙁
Today, women who have these rights have mastered the art of balancing a variety of different roles: career-woman, homemaker, wife, girlfriend, daughter, mother, aunt, boss, employee and friend.
Our world would be a less compassionate place if not for us women!
- Did you know these awesome facts about women in business?
- Women own 10.6 million businesses in the United States.
- They employ 19.1 million workers–that’s one in every seven employees.
- Their businesses account for $2.5 trillion in sales.
I LOVE that I am an independent woman, and that is considered a good thing now-a-days! I have always gone after what I’ve wanted and any woman can do the same when she sets her mind and her heart to it and has ABSOLUTE CONFIDENCE in herself and her abilities.
So, always remember how wonderful it is to be a woman and let’s show one another some extra love and encouragement today Ladies!!!
Happy International Women’s Day!
**Be sure to show your appreciation to the women in youwr life! 😀
