Great Quotes By Great Women

Happy International Women’s Day! To all women out there: You are fierce, you are beautiful, you are important and I am proud to be one of you. Although I think it’s important to celebrate women every day, I felt like putting together a list of quotes by talented, beautiful, smart and strong women who have inspired females everywhere.

We can do it

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun. — Katharine Hepburn

A lot of people are afraid to say what they want. That’s why they don’t get what they want. — Madonna

Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else. — Judy Garland

Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore. — Lady Gaga

I keep waiting to meet a man who has more balls than I do. — Salma Hayek

If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman. — Margaret Thatcher

Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard. — Hillary Clinton

Let’s be very clear: Strong men – men who are truly role models – don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful. People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together. — Michelle Obama

Women have to work much harder to make it in this world. It really pisses me off that women don’t get the same opportunities as men do, or money for that matter. Because lets face it, money gives men the power to run the show. It gives men the power to define our values and to define what’s sexy and what’s feminine and that’s bullshit. At the end of the day, it’s not about equal rights, it’s about how we think. We have to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. — Beyoncé

I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. — Madonna

Figure out who are you separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that’s the most important thing in life. Find a sense of self. With that, you can do anything else. — Angelina Jolie

I just love bossy women. I could be around them all day. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It means somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind learning. — Amy Poehler

It is better to be looked over than overlooked.” — Mae West

There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success… but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going… you’ll know that it was you and the people who love you that put you there.  — Taylor Swift

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. — Coco Chanel

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. — Rosa Parks

I had two options. One was to remain silent and never to speak and then to be killed by the terrorists. The second option was to speak up for my rights and then die. And I chose the second one.”  — Malala Yousafzai

It’s not the absence of fear, it’s overcoming it. Sometimes you’ve got to blast through and have faith. — Emma Watson

If you just set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing. — Margaret Thatcher

A feminist is a person who believes in the power of women just as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It’s equality, it’s fairness, and I think it’s a great thing to be a part of. — Zendaya

Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create. — Oprah Winfrey

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls: ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices, always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now, marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support, but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? — Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. — J.K Rowling
