8 Quotes to Uplift in Celebration of International Women’s Day

international-womens-day--001-1I actually didn’t give much thought to International Women’s Day until I received a beautiful and uplifting card from a friend in Vietnam. As a woman, everyday is women’s day it seems but what makes this day so important? International Women’s Day was first established in 1911, and is now an official holiday celebrated on March 8th that is recognized by the UN and in 27 countries, dedicated to the women who fought for their rights to vote, work & hold public office. As women we know what it is like to work hard for our voices to be heard and a difference to be made but there is POWER in uplifting one another and in unity.

Here at DVD we love to celebrate YOU always so the following are just a few quotes in celebration of International Women’s Day:

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” ~Coco Chanel

“Women are the real architects of society.” ~Harriet Beecher Stowe

“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it.” ~Roseanne Barr

“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?” Mahatma Gandhi

“A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.” ~Diane Mariechild

“Remove those ‘I want you to like me’ stickers from your forehead and, instead, place them where they truly will do the most good — on your mirror!” ~Susan Jeffers

“Never underestimate the power of a woman.” ~Nellie McClung

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make and manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
