for women everywhere…

Happy International Women’s Day to all the lovely, strong, thoughtful, caring, driven, articulate, educated, comforting, inspiring women whom I am so lucky to have in my life.

A few quotes today in celebration and recognition of women everywhere.

Cheris Kramarae

You don’t have to be anti-man to be pro-woman.

Jane Galvin Lewis

Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man.

Margaret Mead

I can’t be a rose in any man’s lapel.

Margaret Trudeau

Betty Rollin

A woman is like a tea bag.  It’s only when she’s in hot water that you realize how strong she is.

Eleanor Roosevelt

A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.

Diane Mariechild

I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.

Susan B. Anthony

“Why do people say “grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina.”

Betty White
