Happy IWD From The Showpo Team

Empowered women, empower women

From the Showpo team to yours, Happy International Women’s Day! As a company founded and run by the ultimate #GirlBoss we’re all about strong, intelligent, kick-ass, remarkable women.

So here’s a big Showpo shout out to all the ladies today (and every day to be quite honest) and a round up of the remarkable women who inspire us every day.


Gal Gadot – Beth, Dev Team

“My favourite woman is Gal Gadot. She is Wonder Woman herself! Not only on screen but also in real life. She is so inspiring. Gal Godot was a beauty queen, then a combat instructor in the Israel Defense Forces, a law student, a model, an actress, a wife and most of all a mother. She has the beauty and brains, with strength and compassion. Yeah, she’s pretty amazing!”

My Mum – Max, Growth Team

“By far and away my mother. Intelligent, rational and with the warmest heart I know. Mum taught me that being kind doesn’t always mean that you aren’t a strong person. She raised my brother, sister and I to go out in the world and do all the good that we can. At the same time as being a respected professional, she made time to volunteer AND always be around for us.”

Safia Minney – Blanaid, Product Team

“I’m inspired by Safia Minney, the founder of People Tree and a pioneer for sustainable and Fair Trade fashion.  She continues to promote sustainable business and responsible supply chains through her speaking, consultancy, documentaries and books.  She inspires change in the fashion world.”

My Mum – Arham, Growth Team

I’m most inspired by my mother. She has taught me great lessons in life for which I am here today.

Oprah – Leah, Model

“Oprah, because she never gives up and her generosity and kindness have inspired and changed the lives of millions of people. Despite her struggles, she doesn’t let that define her and has made herself such a successful woman independently.”

Myself – Kelly, Marketing Team

“Myself. Yes, you read that correctly, I inspire myself. And no I’m not (that) narcissistic, I just keep surprising myself and really, who better to be inspired by?”

Lady Gaga – Tiziana, Product Team

“Lady Gaga is my icon. She’s a powerful woman who uses her platform to speak out about issues like sexual assault and mental health. My favourite Gaga quote is, “As a woman who was conditioned at a very young age to listen to what men told me to do, I decided today I wanted to take the power back. Today I wear the pants.” ”

My Mum – May, Creative Team

“The woman who inspires me is my Mum. She came to Australia as a refugee, having to escape Vietnam because of the war. She was the first person from her family to travel by boat. My mum didn’t know anyone and the only possessions she had were the clothes on her back. The long journey out in the open sea wasn’t easy, she barely had any water and food. Once she arrived in Australia, she helped the rest of her family come over. She met my dad who later passed away from lung cancer, so she pretty much raised 4 kids all on her own. Mum has always supported our passions and dreams as long as we were happy. I am so thankful to have her as a Mum. I aspire to be like her when I have kids. She is the strongest woman I know.”
