Reading and watching the stories arising around International Women's Week, I was struck by the divisiveness around the meaning of feminism. Emma Watson, who is a passionate advocate for feminism, was criticized for her Vanity Fair poses. Articles regularly question whether Justin Trudeau is a feminist or a hypocrite depending on his actions on a particular day. Sophie Gregoire Trudeau is currently being criticized for suggesting that women thank the men in their lives and hold their hands on International Women's Day. Be bold - stand up and end this harmful debate around feminism.
Women inspire me every day. I am surrounded by women at my work and I have amazing female friends and clients. This International Women's Day asks us to #BeBoldForChange, to create a more equal and inclusive world. To celebrate International Women's Day, here are some of my favourite quotes from some very bold, very inspiring women.
