I respect @MichelleObama bcuz she remained strong, graceful & positive in the midst of such racism & hatred that she no doubt has dealt with her entire life. She is THE example of perseverance and #BlackGirlMagic. #InternationalWomensDay @shinetext https://t.co/BK02yrYSpQ— Tonya Riddick (@themundanemom) March 8, 2018
I respect millennial women, because in the face of stereotypes about our age group, I see nothing but hard work & dedication. Shout out to you, friend. I see you finishing grad school, balancing work & motherhood and advancing in all ways 🙌 #InternationalWomensDay @shinetext pic.twitter.com/C3vLLXDt7L— Carol H. (@And_Carol_On) March 8, 2018
I respect Gloria Allred because she stands up for women's rights, and she's been doing it, unapologetically, for decades. I wish I had had her as a role model when I was a young woman. #InternationalWomensDay @shinetext https://t.co/m7HEPHqC9w— Amy Hoffman (@amysue74) March 8, 2018

I respect my mom, Julie, because she fought to raise us right, no matter what happened. As a single mom, she did the best she could for us every day. #InternationalWomensDay @shinetext https://t.co/fxKenKjf9j— Stephanie Radcliff (@wyntergurl) March 8, 2018
