March is Women's History Month. All of the quotes will be from famous women throughout history.

"It is easier to live through someone else than to complete yourself. The freedom to lead and plan your own life is frightening if you have never faced it before. It is frightening when a woman finally realizes that there is no answer to the question 'who am I' except the voice inside herself." ― Betty Friedan
