Happy International Women's Day

Today March 8th marks the 105th  International Women's Day. This day was created to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women all over the world.

To celebrate, here a a few quotes from some strong women:

1. "Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness." ~ Oprah Winfrey ~

2. "The problem with gender is that it prescribes how we should be rather than recognizing how we are. Imagine how much happier we would be, how much freer to be our true individual selves, if we didn’t have the weight of gender expectations." 
 ~ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ~

3. "I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass."  
~ Maya Angelou ~

4. "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."  
~ Coco Chanel ~

5. "Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in." ~ Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ~
6. "I guess at the end of the day, all women like to be appreciated and treated with respect and kindness."  ~Sofia Vergara ~
