Women You Should Know

"It's disturbing how women have been conditioned to incessantly apologize: for giving our opinion, for being 'bossy', for circumstances beyond our control, for having body hair, body fat, (or heaven forbid, bodily functions). What's even more disturbing is how often I catch myself doing it a daily basis. I'm super proud to partner with Freeform in the fight against unnecessary apologies. In celebration of International Women's Day, let's pledge to live our lives proudly and unapologetically." - illustrator Violet Clair via Insta http://bit.ly/2gZaWyG
