Inspiring Words from In the Company of Women: Janet Mock

by Grace Bonney


In the Company of Women is in stores everywhere today (!!!) and all week I’m sharing inspiring quotations from the women in its pages, illustrated by Libby VanderPloeg. Today’s quotation comes from a personal hero of mine, author, advocate and TV host, Janet Mock. I hope these words will lift you up the way they did for me. xo, grace
