Mark your calendar ladies, it falls on the 8th of March of every year, and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate YOU! In light of this extraordinary day we’ve chosen to share our 6 inspirational women in today’s world, talking strictly achievements and marriage.
1. Michelle Obama
Being married to the president of the United States, one of the most powerful men in the world, is not an easy task; so naturally, it takes a strong, unconventional, unapologetic woman to fill such a big responsibility. Michelle Obama’s successful marriage continues to grow strong despite pressures of a busy and high profile life. The secret to her strong marriage is their ability to make time for each other despite leading a busy life. Efforts to make quality time are the first lady’s priority, which shows us that even after 15 years of marriage an effort is necessary to keep the spark alive. Their ability to still have fun regardless of a stressful life proves that taking things lightly every now and then is not a bad idea.
2. Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfrey is one of the most successful, self-made women in our time. Her drive and ambition to make an impact and change lives has much largely contributed to the success of her show and television station. Winfrey has inspired women for decades to be independent, know their self worth and to chase after their dreams. Oprah’s desire to use her power for the greater good, has earned her an uncanny place in our hearts. Winfrey admits to being a non-traditional woman, leading a non-traditional life, that being said she believes that she ‘wouldn’t have held’ the sacrifices and the responsibility that comes with being a wife.
3. Princess Diana
Princess Diana has shaken history with her outspoken personality. She was a one of a kind princess that won millions of people over with her vulnerability and honesty. Her journey was peculiar, one that will never be comprehended by many of us. Her openness to discuss her failed marriage displayed great strength. Although she experienced an unsuccessful marriage, she has showed that working hard to keep a marriage afloat can do no harm and that fighting for the marriage to work is the way to go.
4. Audrey Hepburn

Hepburn candidly spoke of her desire to receive and give affection, her openness to wear her heart on her sleeve taught us to live in the moment and not be afraid to acknowledge our emotions.
5. Amal Alamuddin Clooney
Some might think that her recent celebrity status is inspirational but Amal Clooney’s professional career is the epitome of inspiration. Amal Alamuddin Clooney shies away from the media, however in her brief interviews, she reveals that the secret to her marriage is the mutual support that’s given to and received from her partner and sharing proud moments together. Being private today’s world is a luxury, Amal teaches us that having a successful marriage does not have to be displayed for all people to see but rather enjoyed in the sanctity of one’s home.
6. Hillary Clinton
A former first lady is not her only title! Hillary Clinton did not settle for a just that title, her willingness to make a difference and lead is driving her to run for this year United States presidential elections. All that aside, her 40 years of being in a successful marriage that endured hardship could teach us a thing or two.
