CELEBRATING WOMEN!

March 09, 2018

"Women should be tough, tender, laugh as much as possible, and live long lives. The struggle for equality continues unabated, and the woman warrior who is armed with wit and courage will be among the first to celebrate victory." Maya Angelou

Happy International womens day, wonderful ladies.

As feminists and constant supporters of the sisterhood, we feel every day should be a celebration of womanhood, we truly believe in the fight for equality between the sexes starts with ensuring you are true to the fight. Brave, vocal and supportive. The team at BOAW discuss who was inspiring them today and every day, the result is a selection below. Six amazing women, who are fearlessly female, brave enough to rewrite the rules and make their voice and story heard, sharing their passion and love with the world. These woman inspire us daily with both their hearts and graceful styles.

Most of them are constantly inspiring us by and a new discovered girlfriend. Together they make our struggle day by day more empowered and beautiful.
