I love quotes! I lose hours on Pinterest, clicking through quote after quote. I have my quote apps on my phones and I’m signed up to way too many “quote of the day emails”. So in honour of International Women’s Day, I thought I’d share my ten favourite empowering quotes by some Kick-Ass Women!!
“I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard…we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ―Malala Yousafzai
“I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.” ―Madonna
“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” —Madeleine Albright
“Women are always saying, ‘We can do anything that men can do’ but men should be saying,’We can do anything that women can do.'” —Gloria Steinem
“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” —Maya Angelou
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made… It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.” —Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.” —Audre Lorde

“In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.” —Sheryl Sandberg
“So I want all the girls watching here now to know that a new day is on the horizon. And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say, “Me too” again.” – Oprah Winfrey
