International Women's Day: The #BOSSBABES

Here at Barry M HQ we’re all about our #BOSSBABES. From women’s rights to gender equality, we want to celebrate the women around the world who have fought for change and shaped new views to give women the rights they deserve. Although the fight continues in today's society, women’s rights have come a long way! Raise your glasses to all the babes who have channelled their girl power to make a difference!
Beyoncé Knowles
