Searching for some girl power quotes? Look no further! Here are some girl power quotes by your favourite authors and characters. 

My daughter loves to read, and when she comes across any girl power quotes, she makes a note of them. These appeal to her in a way that is often very personal, saying something that she might not be able to articulate herself, but identifies strongly with. Or draws some inspiration from.

I realised this when I went to her room one day. Of course, the door was peppered with neat squares of paper clustered around a hand-made ‘Knock Before You Enter’ sign. Peering at these squares, I realised that they were a collection of girl power quotes that she had come across. Each square featured one of these girl power quotes, in bold black letters, illustrated with doodles that framed each.

I smiled. I had brought up a true reader!

Here are some of those girl power quotes, for your perusal

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.” – William Shakespeare

“Be who you are and say how you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those that matter don’t mind.” –Dr. Seuss

“Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be!” – Clementine Paddleford

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”  ― Neil Gaiman

“If you’re lucky enough to have something that makes you different, don’t ever change.”  ― Taylor Swift

“When someone tells you that you can’t, turn around and say ‘watch me.’” – Anonymous
