“Behind every successful woman, is herself”
Celebrating females all over the world, in all aspects and industries in life.
In Saudi Arabia in 2018, a law was finally passed to allow women to drive. And the women behind the movement deserve to be named, and remembered.
Loujain al-Hathloul, Eman al-Nafjan, Aisha Al-Mana, Aziza al-Yousef and Madeha al-Ajroush and more. All these inspiring women who fought for women’s right to drive had been successful. But sadly, most are still detained in prison. Let’s take a moment to appreciate their sacrifice.
Knock her all you like, but she grew her family from a reality show to an empire. Who has been training as a lawyer, and fighting for prison reform in America.

The youngest woman ever to receive the Nobel Peace prize with Kailash Satyarthi for their work in fight for children and young people’s right to education.

She is still fighting for the right for girls to have an education.
A new artist who is inspiring in so many ways. But to name a few, she is a plus-sized black singer who shows positivity in abundance. She promises all her music that is released will be uplifting and positive, and wants to share that with the world.
