8th of March was International Women’s day. Then again..Everyday is international women’s day. 😀 We are awesome everyday of the year.There are no breaks. The best part of this is that we do all this in high heels
sometimes flat shoes. I came across this photo of Kate Middleton,Duchess of cambridge.
The caption read something like “After a long plane ride, let me just crouch in stilettos, put the fear of God in my older child while holding my younger on my legs — in a dress and hat in front of foreign dignitaries — and then gracefully stand up without falling over…”
Said no man ever:
Here are a few quotes about women that resonate with me…And hopefully you too!
‘I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, which I entered before my husband was in public life.’- Hillary Clinton
‘Men still run the world; I’m not sure it’s going so well.’-Sheryl Sandberg
‘A woman is like a tea bag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.’- Eleanor Roosevelt
‘If you want something said ask a man, if you want something done ask a woman.’- Margaret Thatcher
‘For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.’- Virginia Woolf
And my favourite:
“We teach girls shame. “Close your legs. Cover yourself.” We make them feel as though being born female they’re already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up — and this is the worst thing we do to girls — they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form.”
― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie,
Here’s to strong women…May we know them,may we raise them,may we be them.
