Today being International Women’s Day we are reminded of this quote by Twinkle Khanna, “Women have been looking for a cape and have been handed an apron for centuries.” It took longer but we have eventually realized that all we need to do is swing that apron around and let it flutter down our backs. That, even if patriarchy tries to stifle our voices, we shouldn’t be bothered and still continue to fight for what we believe in and eventually make ourselves heard!
Honestly, it’s not just now; women have realized their potential and have been proving themselves since centuries. Don’t believe us? Well, we have an account of 4 such kickass women extraordinaires who make us proud. Here’s us celebrating them with our Women’s Day Special Quote Pendants.
The Female Fighter Pilots of World War II a.k.a Night Witches
They were brave, they were feared and they were known as the Night Witches. Any German pilot who defeated even one of them was rewarded an Iron Cross! Such was the scare of these powerful women who flew planes of plywood and canvases with open cockpits, primarily in the night dropping an estimate of 23,000 tons of bombs invading German armies. They showcased true grit and our GirlPower Pendant celebrates them.
Leader of the British Suffragate Movement – Emmeline Pankhurst
She made Women’s right to vote her mission and inspired thousands with her powerful speeches. Such glorious was her practice that her two daughters Christabel and Sylvia also became dedicated suffragettes. Our SelfMade Pendant joins hands with their outshonement across history.
Lakshmibai, The Rani of Jhansi
The first prominent woman freedom fighter who decided to fight than surrender! With her son on her back, this queen participated in the first freedom rebellion and though remaining defeated; she will always be remembered proudly. Our BossLady Pendant glorifies her timeless courage.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Her stentorian style of writing and speaking garnered her immense fanbase. She speaks fiercely about feminism, gender construction and urges us to remake ourselves for the better. She is the voice of today and we celebrate her with our Flawless Pendant which resounds with her ideologies of a woman who is in charge of her own destiny and will continue doing her thing.
