International Women’s Day: Quotes and memes to celebrate gender equality
Each year International Women’s Day gathers momentum. Why? Because women are becoming more empowered than ever before to stand up for their rights and be heard.
Take a look at what’s happened over the last two years… We saw the inaugural Women’s March in protest against Donald Trump’s presidency take on globally; in October that year, a number of Hollywood actresses came forward with allegations of sexual harassment against industry heavyweight Harvey Weinstein, which began a tidal wave of claims against both him and other men in Hollywood.
Last year the women of Hollywood took a stand against injustice with the Time’s Up movement – raising funds to help fight the legal battles of women who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace – and Emma Gonzalez became the face of the #NeverAgain movement in the States – the student-run gun control organisation fighting for more stringent laws on gun ownership – following the horrific school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Yes, it’s been quite a year for women. And so what better time to celebrate all the wonderful women in your life than on International Women’s Day?
Here are some of the best quotes and memes.
1. Before you ask, yes there is an International Men’s Day
2. The passage that sums up every woman’s mood in 2018
3. Let’s all abide by Leslie Knope’s wise words
4. The re-wording of an already perfect quote
5. The meme that perfectly encapsulates prejudice against feminists
6. Always remember to have this level of confidence
7. Our kind of coffee

13. Very #thankful for all the incredible women in our lives
Happy International Women’s Day!
