Working in the lingerie industry, we can’t help but admire and respect women who strive to make the world a better place for all of us. As part of a feminine-based industry, inspirational women mean a lot to us at Panache.

As legendary poet Maya Angelou sadly passed away this week, we took a few moments to look back and reflect on some of our favourite inspirational quotes from women who have made a difference…
