Bravo @uswnt !!! You're all #WomenOfWonder I feel your inspiring and heroic win is a true game-changer, an opportunity to make a real difference in women equality, for all of us around the world, women of today and women of tomorrow. Thank you gals!
Happy women’s day to every single badass babe out there, overcoming obstacles and setting an example for others on a daily basis. As a mother, it’s my responsibility to teach my son respect and acceptance. We are the ones shaping the future generation of men and women, who I have no doubt will grow up in equality, without bias, without discrimination. This one’s to all the young girls discovering their true colors; the working moms; the single moms; the stay-at-home moms; the grandmothers; the women battling illness; the women fighting for their rights and the rights of others; and the women who are trying to make this world a more beautiful place even with the smallest of acts: you are not defined by shape, color, status, or religion; you are so much more than that, and so much more powerful than you know. I live by the example of the strongest and realest women I know, who didn’t let any of the aforementioned labels define them: my grandmothers, my mother, and my mother-in-law, who have managed to run businesses, raise families, and keep it all together despite every hardship they’ve faced. Finally, I would like to remind you of this: being a woman isn’t an excuse for why you CAN’T; it’s a reason for why you CAN. So here’s to all the reasons you should say “I can” and all the reasons more “you will”. Here’s to you and that light inside of you, no matter how dim the world seems sometimes 💙
(PS. I’m honored to be wearing a @sarahsbag#womenofwonder badge, nominated to me by the @mukhisisters. I love what this represents, “we shine brighter when we support and celebrate each other”). I hope to never fail any of you, and I hope I will always be there to support those who need and don’t even need me. I will always try to send out the realest and best example to you through my words, mindset and actions; to empower, to inspire. And I am so grateful to have such a fierce online family of wonderful women supporting and inspiring me everyday 🙌🏼👊🏼 #womensday
