12 Inspirational Quotes From Women On International Women's Day

Women ROCK!

Today is International Women's Day! That's right, women rule and it's time to celebrate their awesomeness.

According to the official website, this is what International Women's Day is all about:

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights," says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem. Thus International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women's Day has been occurring for well over a century - and continue's to grow from strength to strength."

Why do we need a day for women? Because it's still a predominately male-oriented society. No matter how far we've come, we still have a long way to go!

Women are still paid less.

Women are still being victimized and shamed for things they didn't even do (you know, when people blame the rape victim for wearing a short skirt? Yeah, that!)

Women's rights are being attacked by the current administration. What rights, you ask? ALL rights. Every woman should have the HUMAN RIGHT to do what they want with their own bodies without government intervention. But what do I know? I'm just a woman. *eye roll*

Of course, not everyone has the ability to speak out, or protest, or march during the most recent women's right movement. But there ARE women who do make their voice heard for those who can't speak.

I've compiled a few of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite women.

I hope these provide some inspiration. Because the only person who can be the best you is YOU.
