In celebration of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, and because women are worth celebrating no matter the date, we've gathered some of our favorite vintage black and white photos of women through history. Spanning the globe from a market in Morocco to the British coast, these photos capture women in their most authentic moments - as workers, artists, mothers, pilots, athletes and as real, everyday women. Here's to you, women of the world.
