March is Women's History Month and International Women's Day took place this past Wednesday, March 8, 2017. IWD is design to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Simultaneously, it recognizes that progress has slowed in different places globally; therefore, it encourages collective awareness and action to accelerate gender parity. Millions of women (and men) throughout the world celebrated our resilience, our love, our individually unique yet interconnected journeys, our depth, our beauty and all that encompasses being a woman. 

#YoureBeautiful presented by Le Angelique featured incredible young women who spoke on the definition of beauty, the source of their daily empowerment, and although come from different industries and backgrounds, they shared the same power and foundation of operating daily in love and truth.

Here are some of the 7 phenomenal women you should follow.
