International Women’s Day is an annual event that has been growing for over a century. The day focuses on celebrating women’s achievements, calling out inequality and pushing for an equal world. This year everyone is coming together to support #EachForEqual.
Our team here at Truly have put together a list of women that have inspired us in different ways and we’d love to hear from you! So don’t forget to share with us who inspires you, using the tag @Truly_lifestlye
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
Coco Chanel has always inspired me as a designer. She invented the ‘little black dress’, the tweed jacket and the statement necklace. Always pushed boundaries in fashion during the first World War, by creating shorter, boxy, easy to move in pieces for women – freeing them from their tight corsets. Whilst changing the fashion industry, she was creating a better life for herself.
– Izzy, designer
“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength”
This quote helps me when things are feeling overwhelming. Be it balancing work and home life or just staying positive when things are tough, It makes me focus on the result and the strength I will gain by working through the struggles.
– Tara, founder & director
“If you’re able to represent your country in the Olympics everyone will understand you as a player“
Lydia Ko was the youngest ever golfer to become World Number 1, across both genders. As this is a male-dominated sport, she became an inspiration for many women and proved the assumption of inequality within the sporting industry to be wrong.
– Ed, Social media
“We all have our purpose, we all have our strengths.”
Beyonce inspires me because she’s always had ambition, drive and a love for what women can achieve. I mean who doesn’t sing a long in the car to her…Who run the world, GIRLS!
– Rachel, buyer
