International Women’s Day tribute to all women

Just for fun I thought I’d celebrate this International Women’s Day by collecting a few quotes that resonate with me…. So here we go!

“I am a woman in process. I’m just trying like everybody else. I try to take every conflict, every experience, and learn from it. Life is never dull.” (Oprah Winfrey)

“Divination seems heightened and raised to its highest power in woman.” (Amos Bronson Alcott)

“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.” (Joseph Conrad)

“I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.” (Anais Nin)

“In politics if you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.” (Margaret Thatcher)

“If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant’s life, she will choose to save the infant’s life without even considering if there are men on base.” (Dave Barry)

“As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.” (Virginia Woolf)

Any additions?

And especially for women — expat women —  Expat Women Academy where you’ll be given the tools and the curriculum — along with the community of women going through the same thing — to create an amazing life abroad!
