American Business Women’s Day Celebrates Female Professionalism, Empowerment

American Business Women’s Day is Sept. 22. Although not an official public holiday, its one that’s important to us at Focus Marketing & PR, and to the 76.6 million women currently working within the U.S.1

It wasn’t long ago the working world was mainly a man’s world. In this day in age, women work because they can and for many, because they must. At last count, the U.S. Department of Labor tallied nearly 41% of women as the primary or co-breadwinner for their families, and the U.S. Census Bureau estimated 1.1 million employer firms in health care, social assistance and retail (to name a few) as owned by women. 

We’re fairly big fans of these numbers. So, from a woman-owned business to your woman-owned business or female working-self, we applaud you. Not only for your dedication, but for modeling there’s no end to what women can do. 

Inspirational quotes to honor the Day:

A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.”

 — Diane Mariechild, Author

My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.” 

— Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice

I never dreamed about success. I worked for it.” 

— Estée Lauder, American Business Woman

Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong, it’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.”

 — G.D. Anderson, American Polician
