Inspirational Women and their Words

The whole month of March is dedicated to women, their accomplishments, and inspiring the future women to reach their goals. Women's History Month has been going on since 1987 before that women had one week to celebrate, and before that simply a day. We still have International Women’s day, which was recently celebrated on Thursday, March 8, 2018, but to have a month dedicated to us is something that we should appreciate. Women have spoken many inspirational words to many people and I am happy to share, in my opinion, some of the greatest quotes.
