Female rebels inspire us every day here at Rebel and Bird.

Today is International Women's Day, and the women you see in the picture are women who all got a conference room named after themselves at Rebel & Bird's office. Do you know who the female rebels are?

Of course, Rebel & Bird thinks the topic is extremely important, and renaming our rooms after strong women is just a small detail in the fight for equality.

Each time a new conference room is born, all employees can come up with suggestions on what the conference room should be called, and then we vote for a result. All rooms are named after female rebels who inspire us and who we think have done something really cool!
