Women’s History Month; Five Of My Favorite Quotes From History Making Women

whm-collageIn the event that you were unaware, March is Women’s History Month. While it is important that we celebrate women all year, March is a time to bring the strength and beauty we embody to the forefront.

Since the beginning of time women have dared to take up space.  We have blazed trails and went against the grain all in an effort to gain the respect of our male counterparts, to prove that we are equally as great and to make our mark on the world. The actions of these women are the foot prints that women like myself follow today as a guide to where we are going and where they have been.

I think that I have become known attaching qoutes to many of my post. These quotes have proven to be very inspirational, which is why I chose to share them. Today, I would like to share five of my favorite quotes from historical women who inspire me.

However even with that being said, it was in very poor taste to say such a thing.

When Zendaya Coleman walked down the Oscars red carpet rocking faux-locs on Sunday night, many praised her for wearing the non-conventional hairdo to an award show that revered mostly white people.

Tons of fans supported her look, with the exception of E! News and Fashion Police co-host, Giuliana Rancic. On Monday’s episode of the popular show, the 40-year-old anchor claimed that the locs “overwhelmed” the former Disney star and that “she probably smells like patchouli oil … or weed.”

Unamused by the “joke,” Zendaya graciously took to Instagram to give her two cents on why Giuliana’s comments were “disrespectful,” stating:

After much backlash from viewers, Giuliana issued an apology on Twitter:
