International Women's Day 2019

We celebrate International women’s Day 2019 by asking a few creative Industry women to share their own thoughts on what Women’s Day means to them and quotes that they have been inspired by .

What does International Women's Day mean to you?

To me it's the encouragement and empowerment to keep rising up and challenging what it means to be a woman in the world. It's also recognising and checking my own personal privilege in order to speak for, and help all kinds of women around me rise up and be empowered also. Personally, the women in my life are some of the most badass people I know!

We may not be rich, but we’re rich in friends.”  Quote by my mum.

This quote has helped shape my perception of what wealth/success/life is about - nothing to do with materialistic things, but more on the human interactions and relationships we make.  We need each other to build empires or be successful, people to rise with and build a team with.  I think true happiness, wealth and success lies in how we treat each other, our human interactions; that’s where the real “rich” is at.

“I’m not an extraordinary woman, i’m simply and ordinary woman who wakes up everyday doing extraordinary things.”-Quote by Lisa Nichols

This quote has given me the courage to get out of bed even when I am tired, overcome my challenges even when I am doubtful and to remind myself that I ,as well as many other women have the power to make changes whether that is big or small that will inspire,support and uplift another woman to do the same.

Women are truly precious, powerful and inspiring beings.I celebrate all women for your unconditional love, determination and inspiration you give to many others on a daily basis.

We become extraordinary when we come together.
