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

    I forgot to put my daughter Elizabeth Banks age 10 now as my inspiration too. Shes only 10 and never gives up, has her own youtube channel, instagram and facebook of lizziesoawesome and is against bullying and teams up with many online and off line to help kids suffering bullying to move on and be encouraged. She is amazing and my little girl . i love her so much. Shes so smart and so inspirational.

    My mom and sister inspire me. Doing cool crafts, making stuff, writing amazing stories. Working hard all the time. Anna Scribner, the girl who flips RV'S now and was almost homeless living out of her office at work. Dani Johnson who went from homeless to millionaire in less than 2 yrs. Oprah for her amazing talk shows and the gifts and stuff she gave to the people that came. Hillary Swank, who was raised poor in a white trash trailer park they say and lived on foodstamps, and now an amazing actress. The women of Hidden Figures, and how brave and smart they were. The Help, and the the lady who wrote the book for them. To all the women in the world, who ever thought they were too small in life to grow like a beautiful rose. Your out there. and God don't make no Junk. You are somebody, you are smart, kind, courageous, and a child of God. Do'nt ever lose your faith or give up. You are a dream waitng to dream.

    So many! Gloria Steinham, Cate Blanchett, Katharine Hepburn, Donna Tartt, Maya Angelou, Whoopi Goldberg, Daphne du Maurier, Ursula K Le Guin, my Mom, my Grandma Alice, my Great Grandma Myrtle, my sister (an AMAZING mother), I could keep going for days. We don't spend enough time tooting our own horns, ladies! Happy National Women's History Month!

    Maya Angelou is an inspiration to me. She overcame so many hardships in life and did so with grace and courage. She wrote my favorite quote: ?I can be changed by what happens to me but I refuse to be reduced by it.? And that?s exactly how she lived her life. Maya Angelou was a phenomenal woman!
