International Women's Day

Updated: Mar 20, 2023

Today we celebrated the lives of the women who live and work at Elliscombe House. We welcomed our neighbours from Elliscombe Park to share in our conversation around our greatest achievements, who we admire the most, and our advice to the women of tomorrow.

“I want to do so much more, even though I’m 83.”

“Reach out to the people who will improve your life. Surround yourself with good people.”

“Why do I do it? Because I can, and if you can, you should.”

“Your path will be chosen by those you surround yourself with.”

“Go after what you want!”

“Always be kind.”

“Never be afraid of being yourself.”

“Be bold, be curious, be fierce and be fun, and be true to yourself.”

“Live life your way and how you want to. Go for your dreams. Enjoy lots of different experiences and try new things.”

“The world NEEDS strong women. Women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved. Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce; women of indomitable will.”

“Don’t be afraid to love deeply and fully – things, people, places…”

“Do your own thing.”

“Invest in knowing yourself. Ask questions and be honest with yourself - recognise who you are.”

“Do the right thing, not the easy thing.”

“Let your head be a guide but follow your heart.”

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

“Well behaved women rarely make history.”

To woman and girls everywhere - may you feel held, seen and be free to be whoever you want to be.
