To mark #InternationalWomensDay, I invited some of my friends, family & peers from across the globe to #strikeapose by raising their hand high to show their support for this year’s theme #ChooseToChallenge … inequality, call out bias, question stereotypes & help forge an inclusive world.
I hope this wall of celebration filled with amazing women, their allies and quotes from historical figures & modern revolutionaries, will bring you cheer and inspiration. I also hope it'll help cultivate fearlessness in all those that surround us - to realise their own vision for a better future, in their lives going forward.
The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.'
'There’s power in allowing yourself to be known and heard, in owning your unique story, in using your authentic voice.'
'Women belong in all places where decisions are being made … It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.'
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
'Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.'
'I raise my voice - not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.'
