All The Empowerment Inspo You Need
From Maya Angelou to Michelle Obama, Eleanor Roosevelt to Meryl Streep, here are the most inspirational quotes for women that will leave you feeling totally empowered, positive and ready to take on just about anything.
1. Emma Watson
"Feminism is not here to dictate to you. It's not prescriptive, it's not dogmatic. All we are here to do is give you a choice. If you want to run for prime minister, you can. If you don't, that's wonderful, too. Shave your armpits, don't shave them, wear flats one day, heels the next. These things are so irrelevant and surface to what it is all really about, and I wish people wouldn't get caught up in that."
“It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by who we are.”
2. Michelle Obama
"There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish."
"No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half its citizens.”
“As women, we must stand up for ourselves… as women, we must stand up for each other. And finally, as women, we must stand up for justice for all.”
"I'm tough, I'm ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay."
4. Betty Davis
"When a man gives his opinion, he's a man. When a woman gives her opinion, she's a bitch."
"We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead."
6. Meryl Streep
"I think the best role models for women are people who are fruitfully and confidently themselves, who bring light into the world."
