Who run the world? Girls. As a woman running my own business I felt like it was important for me to talk about International Women’s Day as there are still so many actions that need to be taken for the equality of women around the world. I feel so lucky to spend everyday with my team of females that inspire me everyday to be the best that I can be, as well as making sure I inspire them. Empowering other women and girls is so important for building the skills and confidence they need to achieve their potential and encouraging each other to follow their dreams!
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. To celebrate, I wanted to share with you a handful of my fave Instagram accounts that provide me with inspiration on the daily. Talking about issues that matter, body positivity and fighting for equality for the women of the world - if you don’t follow these already then I urge you to right away!
