Women inspire me every day. I am surrounded by women at my work and I have amazing female friends and clients. This International Women's Day asks us to #BeBoldForChange, to create a more equal and inclusive world. To celebrate International Women's Day, here are some of my favourite quotes from some very bold, very inspiring women.

She inspired Americans to be more caring and respectful toward one-another, as she never treated anyone with less than the utmost respect. For that reason, she won the love, respect and admiration of her fellow Americans. Many First Ladies are respected and admired, it's true, but few were as deeply loved as Mrs. Obama has been.

The last eight years have hardly been America's finest. Through it all, however, this family has stood tall -- resolute, proud, dignified. Never letting on how hurt, how insulted, how devastated, how disappointed and yes, how justifiably angry they must have been, may still be, may always be.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau Does No Wrong Accepting Designer Gifts

A citizen's advocacy group has recently called Sophie Grégoire Trudeau out for accepting gifts and loans of clothing from Canadian fashion labels, deeming her "for sale" for daring to wear support for our country's industry on her sleeve. I can see how gifts and loans can make for some bad optics, even if the role of prime minister's wife has little real political oomph behind it. However, in a world where few powerful individuals direct their influence toward social good like Grégoire Trudeau does, Democracy Watch's threadbare argument seems to be more about populist-pleasing celebrity shaming than hypothetical conflicts of interests.

Melania Trump Is What A Stepford Wife Looks Like In 2016

I am almost sure that Mrs. Trump is not a robot, unlike the women in the famous novel. I say this despite her sculpted face and the generally 1950s Playboy Bunny appearance that seems to defy human aging. I am still sure that beneath the coaching and stilted speeches, she is a human being.

'Wear Pantyhose' And Other Dated Fashion Rules Our Moms Taught Us

I think it's important that we don't cling to the rules our mothers taught us "just because that's the way it's always been done." If your legs look better with hose, wear hose. If you find that brown and black is not a good combination for your skin tone, then don't wear it. Don't be a slave to fashion rules -- old or new.
