These 10 Feminists Will Definitely Get You Inspired To Celebrate International Women's Day


 This Wednesday, March 8, is International Women's Day. The international holiday arose out of socialist movements from the early 20th century and evolved further as democratic nations began to adopt women's suffrage. In present day, the celebration gives feminists and activists around the globe the opportunity to venerate heroes and discuss topics with a wide range, such as women's health issues, gender-based violence, and human rights violations affecting all marginalized populations in a given country. It also provides an excuse to celebrate the women who, throughout history, have inspired us to fight for gender equality. From artists and inventors to current and past political figures, they all have inspired us with their words. 

To help us celebrate the day, the peeps over at Ampersand Travel decided to put together some cool works of art honoring women from all over the globe who've accomplished incredible things. Scroll through to get inspired by women from virtually every continent on the globe. from Malala to Marie Curie.

Emmeline Pankhurst was a leader of the women's suffrage movement in England. She died only a few weeks before Parliament finally extended the right to vote to all British women over the age of 21.
