HONORING SOME VERY IMPRESSIVE WOMEN THIS INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY
words by LUCY BULLING • Fashion
Women are powerful, persistent, and passionate. This International Womens Day we honor some of the most empowered, emboldened, and elegant women who have made an impact on our history and our hearts.
"A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.”
"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."
“I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.”
“I feel like young girls are told they have to be a princess and fragile. It’s bullshit. I identify much more with being a warrior — a fighter.”
“Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore”
“I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, OK.”
“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”
“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story — I will”
“There is no greater pillar of stability than a strong, free, and educated woman”
“You’re not intimidating… he’s intimated by you, the difference”
Simone de Beauvoir
"One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion."
