It’s International Women’s Day! Yes, today is all about celebrating the achievements and triumphs of women across the globe. They might be big, they might be small, but it’s a day to shout about all of your victories – at home, at work, or wherever you are. While the day started to protest against gender inequality – still a very real struggle around the world – today we are joining the #BeBoldForChange campaign and highlighting women’s successes, because visibility and awareness helps drive positive change for women. So, in honour of all the strong women that we know, admire, love, and respect, we’ve rounded up some of the most fabulous females that we’ve had the honour of talking to over the years for a healthy dose of kick-ass inspiration…
The sharp, smart, and oh-so-stylish Sharmadean Reid is the founder of the incredibly cool WAH London. A dynamic entrepreneur, she’s an inspiration for anyone who wants to enter the world of business – and make an impact!
The daughters of Benefit’s co-founder Jean Ford (another incredible woman!), Maggie and Annie are now the global beauty ambassadors for this iconic beauty brand. They seriously know their stuff when it comes to beauty, and they’re always one-step-ahead of the curve when it comes to beauty innovations.
Making plants cool again, Sophie is the founder of geo-fleur – a seriously Instagrammable brand that specialises in workshops, bespoke plant orders, and beautiful geometric homewares. If you’ve ever struggled to keep a succulent alive or you’re looking for a new hobby, then she’s the lady to listen to!

Founder and editor of The Lifestyle Edit, Naomi Mdudu knows a thing or two about building a brand from the ground up. She’s a fountain of knowledge for developing a successful online business and is brimming with career inspiration.
