Celebrating International Women’s Day

Today, we celebrate women all around the world.

I am proud to call myself a feminist and am eager to develop my understanding of how inequality affects the women around me. Throughout the day, I’ve been inspired by posts and messages from the awesome women in my life.

What better way to celebrate than with a few quotes from some fantastic women?
