Wisdom & Sass: The Words & Insights of Women that Inspire Us, for International Women’s Day

On March 8, the world will celebrate International Women’s Day, an annual celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

To mark the day, we asked several executives, all women, to share their favorite quotes. The words they offered are a fitting tribute to the intelligence, wisdom, resilience, and sass (as one of our contributors remarked) of women who shape history in big and small ways.

We invite you to share these words and images with your networks, and request that you please link back to this page.

May you find the wisdom inspiring and the humor refreshing.
