Monday Musings: Women's History Month
This week we celebrate the final days of Women's History Month. There are many incredible stories of women overcoming obstacles and injustices to make huge impacts on their communities, countries and the world. My daughters and I love The Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls series. I learned of many lesser-known inspiring and influential women from the books. Reading their stories make me even more proud to be a woman. We can do incredible things. Let's hear from strong, resilient women in their own words...
"Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and, above all, confidence in ourselves. We must believe we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” — Marie Curie "If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” — Dolly Parton
“My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.” — Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“What I want young women and girls to know is: You are powerful and your voice matters. You’re going to walk into many rooms where you may be the only one who looks like you or who has had the experiences you’ve had. So you use that voice and be strong.” — U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris
"Don’t waste your energy trying to change opinions… Do your thing and don’t care if they like it." — Tina Fey
"I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days."
Let's celebrate and honor women's history everyday!
