In the event that you were unaware, March is Women’s History Month. While it is important that we celebrate women all year, March is a time to bring the strength and beauty we embody to the forefront.
Since the beginning of time women have dared to take up space. We have blazed trails and went against the grain all in an effort to gain the respect of our male counterparts, to prove that we are equally as great and to make our mark on the world. The actions of these women are the foot prints that women like myself follow today as a guide to where we are going and where they have been.
I think that I have become known attaching qoutes to many of my post. These quotes have proven to be very inspirational, which is why I chose to share them. Today, I would like to share five of my favorite quotes from historical women who inspire me.
1. “I have the right of education. I have the right to play. I have the right to sing. I have the right to talk. I have the right to go to market. I have the right to speak up.” — Malala Yousafzai
2. “How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!” — Maya Angelou
3. “If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.”– Margaret Thatcher
4. “Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It’s beyond me.”–Zora Neale Hurston
5. “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” — Mother Teresa
