In honor of International Women’s Day today, we’ve compiled a list of powerful words for the women of Starship. The women of Starship have made an impact in our company and beyond in their respective fields. These quotes are reminders of the strength, resilience and wisdom of women throughout history and inspire all of us at Starship to continue fighting for a more just and just world.

But many women have made a name for themselves in the tech and startup worlds by breaking down these barriers, fighting back, and advocating for greater representation and inclusiveness in their industry.
The Starship women from different parts of the world are a perfect example of this. We’ve collected inspirational quotes from many of them, so make them your role models and inspiration. increase. Let us reflect on their wisdom and courage as we continue to strive for a fairer and just world for all.
