This Women’s History Month, betternotstop and The Better Business Network are shouting about the importance of supporting and championing women

As part of our celebration of Women’s History Month, we wanted to share some of our favourite and most empowering quotes from women across all generations around the world!

  • We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.

  • Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
    Marie Curie

  • I am an example of what is possible when girls from the very beginning of their lives are loved and nurtured by people around them. I was surrounded by extraordinary women in my life who taught me about quiet strength and dignity.

  • I think beauty comes from actually knowing who you are. That’s real beauty to me.
    Ellen Degeneres

  • Know what sparks the light in you so that you, in your own way, can illuminate the world.
