A century may seem like long time for some, however when you think about what has changed in the last 100 years, you will come to realise that the world is a completely different place – particularly for women. Can you believe it has been 100 years since the first recognition of women’s rights? Or that it’s been 100 years since this fashion statement happened?:
Totally vintage, right?
To celebrate International Women’s Day this year the Outsource To Us team has assembled a list of women who
most inspire us:
Jane Toohey, Partner & Senior Consultant:
She is a working woman who stands up for what she believes in, feisty, beautiful, strong and a committed mother at the same time.
Hilary Knights, Partner & Senior Consultant:
Wow that’s a tough question as there are so many amazing women who inspire me on many levels! Definitely my team on a day-to-day basis who are all very unique and passionate women in their own right. From the younger members of our team who are making their way in their world professionally and personally so successfully through to our other team members who are all advocates for women’s empowerment and love to support and mentor our entire team.
A little further afield but still within Australia I think of a number of female trail blazers who have disrupted their industries and broken the mould. Stand outs of course in their respective fields are Lorna Jane, Janice Ellis (who I love watching on Shark Tank now), Lisa Wilkinson who I greatly admire for her career choices and has buckets of style no matter what the occasion and Lisa Messenger who turned the self-publishing world upside and is now the author of numerous books and of Editor of the monthly magazine The Collective.
Jane Patterson, Marketing Consultant:
I love Emma Watson! Cliché I know… She is smart, articulate, funny and grounded.
Anna Budd, Marketing Support:
A woman who definitely inspires me is Ellen Degeneres! She is constantly giving to those who are less fortunate, she makes us laugh with her hilarious jokes, and she knows how to do a great 12 days of give away at Christmas time (If anyone has a spare ticket to one of those shows, let me know). She’s also a great ambassador for animal conservation and equality for all people.
