HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY: A LIST OF WOMEN THAT INSPIRE US.

Posted by MICHI STAFF on

Happy International Women’s Day! Today and every day we should recognize how women are doing amazing things to make the world better. At MICHI, we encourage one another and practice what we preach. Starting with being a female founded and led company, MICHI has built a business by supporting women and fuelling their confidence through the activewear they wear and beyond. Our activewear products are also ethically produced in Canada where fair wages and working conditions are standard. We love supporting women that are making an impact in their #MICHIcommunity and we try to do this every facet of our business.


International Women’s Day is an opportunity to appreciate women and their accomplishments. But it doesn’t stop there! This year’s official theme is #BalanceForBetter and it could not come at a better time. For centuries, an entire gender has stayed silent on important topics that affect us everyday. But there’s no better time than now to be a woman and MICHI is so grateful to join in with inspiring women that keep us moving forward.


This year we’re supporting women this International Women’s Day by donating 10% of all sales made on IWD to Girls.inc.

Here’s what they have to say about #InternationalWomensDay

 

FRANCIA:

How do you inspire confidence in other Women?

I love inspiring women by encouraging them to be the truest version of themselves, being approachable and relatable, which is shown in our unfiltered day-to-day videos. Our platform also goes beyond fitness and taps into overall wellness and mentorship, by having an open door policy where women can reach out and engage with us through direct messages knowing that they will always get honest feedback & support. We love the idea of building an ever growing army of like minded girl bosses.  

BREAKING THE MOULD OF THE ASIAN ACTOR: AWKWAFINA

Rejecting roles that require accents is one decision that goes a long way in how much impact Awkwafina’s has had on Hollywood.  She advocates against the stereotyping of Asian actors in all media and for the need of more female directors and writers.

MICHELLE OBAMA: THE FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT, KIND OF

From her “Healthy Child, Healthy World” initiatives, to being a style icon for the White House.  Michelle Obama is someone to look up to and aspire to. Need we say more?

DANCERS WHO BREAK BOUNDARIES: ASHLEY LEE, JEAN SCHROEDER + BIRDIE CONNORS-SCHWARTZ

Here’s what they have to say about #InternationalWomensDay

 

ASHLEY:

How have you pushed boundaries to #BalanceforBetter?

In the past few months, I've discovered new unbelievable strengths of the female body; specifically, a pregnant body. At first, I was hesitant to be too open about my pregnancy on social media in fear of judgement or worse. However, as my pregnancy progressed, and I was constantly being treated by well-intentioned people to be handicapped, I realized that it was my responsibility to show the world and other women that pregnancy is a superpower, and not a disability. My hope is that by posting stories and photos of my experience, I can help others to understand that a pregnant body is just as strong and capable as anyone else's.

 

BIRDIE:

How do you inspire confidence in other women?

My advice to other women out there, is to believe in yourself, if you see a way to achieve it, do it! There are always going to be setbacks in life, and there is always a way out. Love what you do and do what you love and you’ll be able to go further than you can image.

 

JEAN:

How have you pushed boundaries to #BalanceforBetter?

As a classically trained ballet dancer for over 20 years I have been pushed physically and mentally past limits that I thought were impossible. Classical ballet variations, partnering lifts, injury. Ballet is hard and technical and definitely not easy! Yet, when I thought that I wouldn’t be able to overcome an obstacle I would often surprise myself by coming out stronger and better on the other side after some practice, some words or encouragement or even simply just believing in myself. This is what is so incredible about our mind and bodies and the “limits” we place on both. We are often so much stronger than we believe we are.

GAL GADOT AS WONDER WOMAN
