Happy International Women’s Day; appreciating words of wisdom by strong women from around the world

Avatar

Women have been fighting for gender equality from a very long time. With years of practicing, revolting and taking revolutionary steps, women today have raised their position in the society.

Women have struggled for the most minute of things like the right to vote, right to education, equal wages, right to bodily integrity and autonomy, and even for the right to be free from sexual violence.

Clara Zetkin founded International Women’s Day in 1910. Today, women are making a move and coining their name in the pages of history. This year’s International Women’s Day campaign has picked up the theme #ChooseToChallenge.

What new to do on this International Women’s Day

The most recent example of women taking over the world was when Kamala Harris gracefully took over the position of vice president of the United States.

Let’s have a look at some quotes said by the superwomen who influenced and impacted the male dominant society to break through all the barriers!

Hillary Clinton – “To all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful, and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”

Margaret Thatcher – “If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.”

Madeleine Albright – “It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.”

Madonna – “I’m tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.”

Madeleine Albright – “It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.”

G.D. Anderson – “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong; it’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.”

Erin McKean – “You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female’.”

Women are powerful beings who can change the world around them. Here’s wishing all the women out there a very happy International women’s day!
