What are the top qualities that come to your mind when asked about traits of a woman you admire? Do you think kind, caring, and compassionate? How about tough, brave, and courageous? What about overall badass? Women encompass all these qualities and more. As March marks the month to honor women in history, it is also a great time to reflect on the women in our life. Whether she be a sibling, relative, co-worker, friend, boss, or mentor, there are women around us who help pave the path to our personal and professional success.
While women haven’t always been celebrated, significant strides have been made in the struggle for equality. Historical figures have worked tirelessly in industries like science, aerospace, mathematics, healthcare, and more to push open an otherwise closed door for generations to follow. Celebrate historical icons like Marie Curie, who was the only woman to receive two Nobel Prizes in her lifetime for both physics and chemistry and Loretta Lynch, who was the first African-American woman to hold the position of U.S. Attorney General. They and many other women have helped shape our world.
Get inspired by leaders, revolutionary icons, artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and activists whose lives are worth remembering. Read their words for a daily surge of motivation or share their inspirational power with a loved one.
