Today is International Women’s Day, and we’re celebrating the power of XX chromosomes with Beyoncé, who has proven to be an empowering voice for the female community. The ‘Diva’ singer demonstrates that girls do run the world, and we are all indeed ‘flawless.’

To commemorate the holiday, SUITCASE has compiled ten of Beyoncé’s most badass lyrics.

Diva is a female version of a hustler – Diva.

I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife – ***Flawless.

We’re smart enough to make these millions, strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business – Run the World (Girls).

I sneezed on the beat, and the beat got sicker – Partition.

Momma taught me good home training. My Daddy taught me how to love my haters. My sister taught me I should speak my mind. My man made me feel so God damn fine – ***Flawless.

Some call it arrogant, I call it confident – Ego.

I got beauty, I got class, I got style, and I got ass – Why Don’t You Love Me.

Your dynasty ain’t complete without a chief like me – Upgrade U (ft. JAY Z).

I’m a grown woman. I can do whatever I want – Grown Woman.

Freakum dress out my closet. Yonce filling out this skirt. I look damn good I ain’t lost it – Jealous.

I’m known to walk alone but I’m alone for a reason. Sending me a drink ain’t appeasing, believe me –Upgrade U (ft. JAY Z).
