Ellie Goulding paid homage to the groundbreaking work of Dr. Jane Goodall.
Many, many women have had me in awe of their accomplishments on this planet, and the incredible Jane Goodall has dedicated her life to saving it- which is why I chose her for this post on International Women’s Day. I am so proud to be a woman. I owe everything to the women in my life. Women are my comrades and not my competition. Amongst my family, friends, the women I see at the Marylebone Project of which I am a patron, the environmentalists I meet, athletes, and the women I have met in music, I see such incredible strength, kindness, fierceness, compassion, resilience and enormous courage. May they continue to empower, challenge, and inspire me. #InternationalWomensDay exists so we can ALL have the chance to celebrate and recognise women’s achievements, and is an important catalyst for bold change as we move towards gender equality. Who inspires you?
Alicia Keys makes a public vow to raise her children to be feminists and encourages women around the world to see the beauty in themselves.
I will raise my children to be beautiful human beings and powerful men who understand how magnificent women are. I believe that all women, all over the world, are beautiful, whole and powerful. They should be honored like goddesses, not just on International Women’s Day, but every day. We must continue to lift each other up, believe in ourselves and not hold back from this truth. #InternationalWomensDay
