Who runs the world? Girls, that’s who! From the new wave of badass young women in Congress making their mark on the world and standing up for what they believe in to the female-centered movies and TV shows and female superheroes that inspire us all to kick some butt and achieve our dreams, it’s clear that Beyoncé was right. In honor of International Women’s Day, let’s celebrate all of the strong, powerful and beautiful women out in the world and in our very own lives — and not just today, but everyday too. Here’s to the women of the past, the present and the future, and all of the women breaking barriers and paving ways for the next generation of confident, independent women. May we know them, may we support them, may we be them.

Peace, love, Clog.
