To celebrate Women’s History month…we wanted to share a few #YESWOMEN (both current and historical) that we ♥!

amelia_earhart

Amelia Earhart – “Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace with yourself.”

In 1920, Amelia took a ten-minute plane ride that changed her life. It was then that she knew she was meant to fly. In June 1928 Amelia became the first woman to cross the Atlantic Ocean by plane and later became the first woman to fly successfully from Hawaii to our very own California (we’re pretty sure she’d take our travel wipes on a journey like that!).

amy_poehler

Amy Poehler – “I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind leading.”

Amy Poehler has become one of TV’s top comediennes (and a best friend to another one of our favorites, Tina Fey!) An Emmy award winner, this woman uses her spotlight to uplift and inspire through her rapidly expanding online network and community movement, Smart Girls at the Party. Smart Girls is aimed to help young women (and the young at heart) with the process of cultivating their authentic selves.

susan_b_anthony

Susan B. Anthony – “There shall never be another season of silence until women have the same rights men have on this green earth.”

Susan B. Anthony was one of the driving forces of the women’s suffrage movement, an equal rights activist, and social activist. Not only was she devoted to equal rights of women; she was devoted to equal rights of all people (we say YES to that)!

dr_sally_ride

Dr. Sally Ride – “Our future lies with today’s kids and tomorrow’s space exploration.”

Dr. Sally Ride, a double major in physics and English, beat out 1,000 other applicants (you go girl!) for a spot in the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s astronaut program. After rigorous training, Ride became the first American woman in space, aboard the space shuttle Challenger. That’s pretty out of this world, don’t you think?

US NEWS PARKS 1 KRT

Rosa Parks – “Each person must live their life as a model for others.”

The United States Congress called Rosa Parks “the first lady of civil rights” and the “mother of the freedom movement”. By refusing to give up her seat, she started a nationwide movement to end segregation of public facilities.

These awesome ladies made (and are making) history with their bold moves and courageous decisions – and inspire us to say YES to doing more of that. #YESWOMEN…let’s make history!
