International Women's Day

  • Happy International Women's Day 2015!

    Today is a very important day for all of our Roo Girls: It's International Women's Day! In case you've never heard of it before, it's all about celebrating us: women! Many argue that the world is still an unequal place, and Women's Day seeks to bring a greater awareness of women's equality. Each year there is a new them, and this year's International Women's Day 2015 theme is "Make It Happen." This means that while International Women's Day is great because it brings awareness to an important cause, awareness simply isn't enough. We must actively make the changes necessary to bring gender equality into the world.

    Since our main goal at Rissy Roo's is to help make each girl feel as beautiful as they are, we wanted to give our Roo Girls a little inspirational quote for today! There are so many powerful women out there that we should look up to and be inspired by, and one of those women that we're a big fan of at Rissy Roo's is Oprah Winfrey. She's made an empire around inspiring, educating, and empowering women, so she is definitely a women that should be looked up to. So, below is one of her famous quotes that every women should keep in mind every day:

    "Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness."

    -Oprah Winfrey

    Audrey Hepburn once said a great quote that we think represents the modern woman so well:

    “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”

    Harness Audrey's insightful thoughts today and feel proud to be a woman, because today is our day! And, make sure to spread the love to the other women in your lives. As we said on twitter, #GirlsRunTheWorld, afterall!

    Happy International Women's Day!
