7 Badass Creative Women to Celebrate for International Women’s Day
Happy International Women’s Day!
In case you haven’t yet heard, it’s International Women’s Day and a lot of people have a lot of thoughts on the topic. Organizers of the Women’s March in January have decided to use the day to encourage women to participate in A Day Without Women — a strike on society’s treatment of women. Ladies are being asked to stay home from work, not spend any money (unless it’s at a local business owned by a badass woman) and wear red in solidarity.
Since taking a day off of work is much easier said than done, I don’t own a lot of red (black & white wardrobe, anyone?), and I don’t usually go shopping in the middle of the week, I wanted to show my celebration of International Women’s Day in a different way.
When was the last time you reached out to your girl friends and told them how awesome they are? Today is as great a day as any to shoot a quick text over to your fellow ladies and say, “hey, I just think you’re a bad ass. Thanks for everything you do.”
This day is about appreciating other women — not putting them down. It’s about standing together as a community of super cool peeps and saying “we’re choosing how we want to live our lives, and we’re doing it together.”
These Creative Women are Inspirational as Hell
Telling your girlfriends they’re awesome is one way to celebrate today. Another way is by honoring those who have stepped up and made an impact on women in our community. Although there are thousands of badass women out there, for the purpose of this blog, I’m just going to stick to my top seven favorite creative women as of late.
These women have accomplished truly amazing things in our industry and they deserve a little shout-out once in a while. So, without further ado, here’s seven seriously badass women we should be celebrating for International Women’s Day (in no particular order).
