International Women's Day

International Women's Day, 8th March

Celebrated each year on March 8, this is a day honoring women and their many achievements. I would like to stand with other women in the world to celebrate the achievements of all women in the world nurturing life and making it better.

The future belongs to that which women hold. In doing this here are my favorite quotes on women power and why we matter.

“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.” — Michelle Obama.
“I tell my daughters to have their voice in this world, and it became clear I needed to role-model that.” — Melinda Gates, Co-Founder, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
“I love the person I’ve become because I fought to become her.” – Kaci Diane
“I wished to know the meaning of things. I am the meaning. I wished to find a warrant for being. I need no warrant for being, and no word of sanction upon my being. I am the warrant and the sanction.” — Ayn Rand
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” – JK Rowling
“Strong women don’t play victim, don’t make themselves look pitiful, and don’t point fingers.They stand and they deal.” – Mandy Hale
“No nation can rise to the height of glory unless your women are side by side with you.”Muhammad Ali Jinnah
“May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” Unknown
