Today is International Women’s Day, which is celebrated around the world. The idea is to celebrate the achievements of women, which is the exact mission of The Fab Girls!

This day was established by The United Nations for two reasons; To recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms requires the active participation, equality and development of women, and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security.

Who are the women who inspire you? Tell us in the comments!
