A promise of successful women for International Women’s Day

Two words that matter in the workplace every day—but especially on March 8th, International Women’s Day , a day that “celebrates the social, economic, cultural, and political achievement of women,” as well as acts as a call to action for individuals and organizations to promote, enforce, and advocate for gender equality.

So, in honor of the big day, we’ve compiled our favorite inspirational quotes from successful women who make us feel empowered every day. Enjoy—and then go out there and be a part of the movement to advocate for women.
