Inspiring Quotes for International Women’s Day from the Women at Viber

International Women’s Day is finally here and we couldn’t help but celebrate with some of the women working here at Viber. We decided to ask some of our leading ladies which quote to do with International Women’s Day she most identified with and why. The answers are in.


“Feminism isn’t about making women strong. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” ― G.D. Anderson

Whose fave: Meital, Product Team Leader

Why? “The strength of a woman comes from her inner strength, her ability to accept situations and be sensitive to them. It’s a different definition of strength, one that may not be physical but is substantially stronger.”


“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” ― Oprah Winfrey

Whose fave: Debbi, Head of B2B Marketing

Why? Most people are afraid to fail, so they don’t try and that’s a shame. You’ll never know how far you’ll get in life if you don’t give it a try. If you fail, you can always try again, but at least you’ll know you tried the first time around.”


“She believed she could, so she did.” ― R.S. Grey

Whose fave: Veronika, Site Manager Belarus/iOS Project Manager

Why? “If society can remove the prejudices surrounding women, if it becomes more supportive of women, then women will manage to do so much more. At the end of the day, as Alice Walker put it, ‘The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any’, but they truly do.”


“I am woman. What’s your superpower?” ― Anonymous

Whose fave: Yana, Head of PR CIS, France, Germany

Why? “I relate to this quote because women have power, passion and the moral and physical qualities to change the world. They only need to want to change it!”


“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.” ― J.K. Rowling

Whose fave: Idit, Head of Legal

Why? “I strongly believe each person can set their mind to what they want to achieve and then get there, men and women alike. As women, we shouldn’t even think there are barriers because we are women. We should just focus on our strengths and unique characteristics and allow them to help us reach our goals and make the changes we want to see in the world. Everything is possible!”


“As women, we must stand up for ourselves. We must stand up for each other. We must stand up for justice for all.” Michelle Obama

Whose fave: Sally, Global Business Development Director

Why? “We must believe in our value in all areas of life, be brave, make sure that our voices are heard and take as many people as possible with us on our journey.”


Whose fave: Ankeeta, Product Manager

Why? “This Michelle Obama quote reminds me that every woman’s struggle may not look the same, but threats to women’s rights are threats to human rights and require our focus.”
