At SheSpeaks, we've been inspired by so many women, both those we know personally and those we've never met. Here are just a few of them:

My Mom

The woman who has positively influenced me is my mom, Ying Lo. She has taught me to never doubt my intuition and to go for what I love to do. She is the reason I am 100% my unapologetic self and strive to do more with my life. - Gaonou

J.K. Rowling

Aside from being an amazing author, J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter) faced a lot of rejection and persevered to see her vision come to life. She gives back generously, speaks her mind and holds true to her beliefs. - Stephanie

My Grandmother

She was an amazing woman who grew up in a time with gender role expectations, yet went on to receive her Master's and start various organizations, including women’s organizations. She was incredibly wise and always gave the best advice. - Melissa

My Mom's Group

When my oldest son was born, I met a group of amazing new moms. We started going out to dinner once a month and we haven't stopped for more than twelve years. These women have inspired me to be a better mom and a stronger person. They also taught me how important it is to support other women - and find women who support you. - Susan

Serena Williams

Serena Williams is more than just an incredible tennis player. She also uses her platform for good and has become a great role model for all, but especially girls, sisters and now moms. Her passion for excellence is inspring. I love her new Nike video that says it all.  - Carol

    Women who are survivors and later thrive in life despite a history of verbal/ emotional/ sexual/ physical abuse . As a health care provider I have the distinct honor of meeting just such women on a daily basis . Their stories and struggles are real and so is their determination and courage !

    ALL women athletes have inspired me. This crap of allowing transgender males to compete in women's sports is just wrong! Women have worked hard and earned a spot in athletics! Babe Didrikson Zaharias was amazing, Chris Evert, Bonnie Blair, Wilma Rudolph, Jackie Joyner-Kersee-- all these women inspire me every day! Just to see what they overcame in a mens dominated world of athletics! Go girls, When someone use to tell me I throw like a girl, or I run like a girl, I would tell them THANK YOU!

    A few women have inspired me and continue to everyday! I could name the women that inspire me and give examples of the things they do that inspire me however. I'd rather give praise to those that I don't know but they help the homeless, they're a loyal friend, they don't tear others down, they're compassionate, they haven't aloud the world to break their kind and generous spirit!

    My grandmother inspired me. She was a woman ahead of her time. She wore pants when women wore skirts, she didn't marry until her late 20s, she was very independent and felt that women could do everything a man could do. She taught me to be an independent thinker and therefore, I was the first in my family to go to college.

    My Mother. My mother passed away 9 years ago, this September 21st. People still speak to me about missing my mother. . There isn't a day I dont miss her myself. My sisters child was diagnosed with aml at one in 1983. My sister couldnt take care of him. . My mother raised 4 kids and a sick grandchild--without too much support from my father and her family. . One of the sick children at Sloan Kettering along with my nephew, asked my mother to Rollerskate along the corridors along Sloan Kettering. . My mother never roller skated. She grew up during the Great Depression. But she borrowed my skates and she did it. To make that sick child happy. And she didnt get hurt. That was my mother. That is the person that inspires me every day.
