“Because of the prominent presence that women have had. We are the backbone of this country. Men have the power and they always want us to take the backseat.”
“To remind the nation of the many contributions that women have made to this great country and remind the country that we need to level the playing field.”
“All the pain and the injustice that we’ve endured. The fact that we have to fit inside certain stereotypes in America. There’s a multitude of reasons why we should celebrate women.”
“There wouldn’t be a world without women. Women are the givers of life. As advanced as technology may get, without women there wouldn’t be anything.”
