International Women’s Day is a worldwide event that celebrates women’s achievements – from politics to social matters to cultural issues. March the 8th is the perfect time to support women’s rights, promote their contributions to the world, advocate for the education of young girls, and inspire people in a positive way. And to celebrate, we've come up with 10 empowering graphic design pieces to display some memorable quotes. According to the U.N., around 35 million girls are not enrolled in primary school and that has to end. Every girl should have the right to an education and freedom of choice. Women need to be free from violence, trafficking, and discrimination. It’s time to raise the flag when it comes to women’s rights and pay tribute to their strength and determination.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we scoured the internet for inspirational quotes to empower every girl and woman. We are celebrating March 8th by reflecting on the wise words dynamic women from around the globe have shared about everything from education to success.
