It is March 8 and the world is celebrating a unique group; women. What is a better way to celebrate than reading great quotes from very inspirational women who even though faced a lot of battles, have remained at the top?
There is forever going to be something special about women that are ready to support other women. It could be our mothers, sisters, mentors, or best friend as far as they are always there to pick us up when we fall. But there is always something about women we see as role models, the ones who have achieved what we hope to achieve or gone through experiences and scaled through.
These role models have a special way of saying phrases that feel like they are directly talking to us even when sometimes they don’t know us. Reading Becoming by Michelle Obama gave me more insight and made me realize these successful women have also been through so many of the same hurdles as the rest of us.
So this year, for the International Women’s Day #breakthebias, I have compiled 10 inspirational and uplifting quotes from famous women all over the world. From the famous Nigerian feminist writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to Egyptian feminist writer Nawal El Saadawi for you to always come back to one of your bad days to remind you how special, amazing, and beautiful you are.
