To all the powerful, strong women who keep all of us at Mary Kay inspired every day, today is your day. In honor of International Women’s Day, I would like to acknowledge all the women who are role models and mentors in communities, both large and small, all around the world.

Trailblazers, like our founder Mary Kay Ash, helped pave the way for women to be independent, successful and empowered. These powerful pioneers defied the limits that had been set for them and when they were told they couldn’t do, they did anyway.

This International Women’s Day, we celebrate the women who came before us and carry their legacies into the future. We recognize that their passion, persistence and hard work made today’s opportunities possible.

The Mary Kay Independent Sales Force lives out the legacy of Mary Kay Ash every day. Mary Kay Ash formed a community of strong entrepreneurs who are still breaking barriers for women across the globe. They refuse to let anything hinder their success while lifting others up along the way, which is exactly what Mary Kay Ash dreamed of when building her company.

Mary Kay Ash once said, “You are a woman. You can do anything in the world you want to do,” and as a company, we have always believed this to be true. We believe one woman can do amazing things. We are a company built by a woman for women - and that will never change.

In 2018, we will celebrate the centennial anniversary of Mary Kay Ash’s birthday. I believe she would be extremely pleased to know that her legacy continues to inspire and empower millions of women around the world today. Today and every day, we celebrate women’s accomplishments and victories – no matter how big or how small. On behalf of all of the Mary Kay staff members around the world, I wish our incredible Independent Sales force, and all the empowered, successful, courageous and determined women, a happy International Women’s Day!
