Continuing the Momentum of Progress

What are some good quotes for IWD and this month?

Sharing a quote is a simple way to preserve women’s history and continue the momentum of progress for women everywhere.  Before you share, be sure to understand the context and purpose of what was said, and make sure you’re using those quotes in a way that would align with the values of the people who said or wrote them.   We pulled a few with a link to more!
