It’s funny how much change just one person can create. From a yearbook quote challenging school dress codes to the modern day Rosie the Riveter, all the way back to finding yourself in the mirror and sticking to your guns. Women are powerful in so many ways and it’s time to unleash those powers!

Modern Rosie The Riveter: Ever wondered how America was built?  Or if there were forgotten voices somewhere lost in the image of factory work being a man’s role? Here’s a look into the women since Rosie became an icon that helped shape us.

Life Changing Selfies: I don’t know about you but I always feel better once I take a quality selfie. It’s an instant pick me up. And here’s how flattering ourselves for once can be a step in a great direction.

But You Look Different…. Ever felt like you didn’t belong somewhere? Or that your background didn’t match up with your surroundings? Sometimes you just need that one conversation to remind you that you actually do.

Mirror On The Wall: Why do you want to lie to me? Going from a body builder with the ideal look to a mother of a beautiful child, Taryn Brumfitt decided it was more important to love yourself at a healthy level than to concentrate on an ideal somebody else was pushing.

Models Are Smart?: Nine powerfully successful models give their take on feminism, what it means to be a woman in the workplace, and what we should be concentrating on instead of how we appear in the mirror.

Oh YearBook Quotes: Who knew they could go viral? Or actually make you think? This high school senior takes down school dress codes in a fabulous manner.

There’s Still Work To Do: Lavern Cox responds to Caitlyn Jenner in a powerful manner, reminding us that while her transition is powerful, there is still so much more work to be done. And that there is still a struggle to fight.

Go, Fight, Win: I think most anyone’s favourite Supreme Court Judge is Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She reminds us to fight for not only what’s important, but for what we care about ourselves. That this is how we’ll change the world.
