IWD Trailblazers

Today’s the day where we encourage empowered women to empower other women. We’re taking some time to reflect on the amazing all-American ladies who have taken the country by storm, and while there are too many to name, a few stuck out to us as bad@$$es of their time. These OG trailblazers have made an impact on life as we know it, and for that, we are forever thankful.

  1. Jackie O - This First Lady graced us all with her strength, love of arts and culture, and classic style. 50 years later, she’s still one of our favorite icons.

  2. Oprah - Where do we start? After being fired from her first reporting job for “being unfit for TV,” this media legend, entrepreneur, and philanthropist created the definition of #hustle.

  3. Diana Vreeland - The American Dream met Diana as she began as a columnist in Harper's Bazaar, and then when she went on to become the editor-in-chief at Vogue during the fashion-forward 60s. She spent the next chapter of her life as consultant to the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, inspiring creatives for generations to come and turning the Met Gala into the fabulous fete we know today.

  4. Amelia Earhart - As the brilliant aviation pioneer, author, politician, and educator, Earhart flew her way through the Women’s Rights movement for the National Women’s Party.

  5. Katharine Graham - Graham’s work at The Washington Post lead her to be one of the top industry-leaders of all time. As the first female Fortune 500 CEO, she spearheaded a major journalistic movement, supporting the power of press.

While we celebrate #fiercefemmes alike today, give your fave boss babe some love.
