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

    My mom inspires me the most because of the unwavering support through thick and thin! Even when I've had a long day with the kids, she knows me best and doesn't offer solutions, just listen and empathize with me.

    My online women's group. We all met on a wedding planning website 20 years ago and have been there for each other through everything since - babies, infertility, anniversaries, divorces, losing spouses and finding new love, landing dream jobs and losing everything, and laughing at the craziness of life in between it all. These ladies are some of my best friends; some of us travel together, we get together when visiting each others' home towns, and talk at all hours. I have no idea how I'd have survived the last 20 years without them.

    My grandmother just recently passed away. She was a working, divorced mother of two who basically had to fend for herself during the 60s and 70s, which was unheard of. She had a determination, grace, and a great sense of humor. I miss her terribly.

    I have two beautiful, loving women who inspire me. Both made it from the ground up and still work hard to love on their families. My mother and my mother in law. If there?s ever a story of perseverance and strength these women are the epitome of them.

    Here i am almost 39 and pregnant with my second child. No family or friends around and struggling with a high risk pregnancy. Alone in my journey and struggling. Two wonderful women have pretty much adopted me as a sister and they have been taking care of my emotional needs through the hardest parts of this pregnancy. These women are sweet and sincere and have listened to me cry and supported every moment of my hormone enraged pregnancy. I could not have a better support system. What makes them even more special is the we have never met in person. Yet they are there for me 24-7. Even offering to come help with my delivery to sending me wonderful baby gifts. Sometimes it really does take a village and luckily I have found mine. I can't be more greatful.

    Without a doubt my mom who selflessly raised 4 children under the age of 10 after my father passed away suddenly. No greater woman that I know!

    Not a "real" woman but the prototype for one is my inspiration. When I read Chapter 31 of the book of Proverbs in the Bible, I get inspired by what the writer lists as the many amazing and wonderful, selfless attributes of a godly woman. There are women in my life who have some of these qualities, but the comprehensive list of what constitutes a woman of God gives me personally something to strive for and especially to appreciate in the women I know.

    My mother inspires me the most in my life because- She woke up earlier than me so that I could get ready for school/college. She makes the food which is my favorite rather than her favorite just so she can see a smile on my face. She does the housework even when she is sick. I could keep on writing and still the words would fall short. Mothers are the most selfless beings in life. Their perseverance, integrity and dedication towards their family is what inspires me the most. I would like to salute all mothers for their care and resilience.

    My grandmother has been inspiring me my entire life. From being the first in our family to go to college, to fighting congress for the rights of children and the elderly, to not only fighting but beating breast cancer 4 times. I am so inspired to always keep going with a smile and a love for others.
