Word Origin and History for Moxie

company that made it, it is perhaps ultimately from a New England Indian word
(it figures in river and lake names in Maine, where it is apparently from Abenaki
and means “dark water”).

Much imitated in its day; in 1917 the Moxie Company won an infringement suit against a competitor’s beverage marketed as “Proxie.”

Why I decided to write a blog targeted toward encouraging women.

  1. To share my knowledge with other women.
  2. To encourage other women to expand “their box” or comfort zone.
  3. It’s OK for someone to say you have Moxy!  That doesn’t make you a B*tch!
