7 Inspirational Quotes For Women That You Need This Weekend!

Posted: June 22, 2018

These inspirational quotes for women give us that little boost we all need at times – to know that we’re not alone, that we stand on the shoulders of women who have gone before us.

We all have our own way of coping up in stressful situations or tough times. For myself, I prefer some inspirational quotes from the powerful women I admire around me to uplift my spirits. Be it my notepad, room, my office cubicle, I always have an inspirational quote written over, to keep me going. However, I do believe a little dose of inspiration can make you feel a lot better.

So, here are 5 inspirational quotes for women, from powerful women across the globe that resonate with me and my takeaways from them:

Accept criticism but don’t let it define who you are!

“I think it’s very important for you to take criticism seriously but not personally. And don’t let yourself get pulled down by other people’s opinion, because I think what you think about yourself, what you say about yourself to others, really does affect how you present yourself and eventually, who you are.”

Hillary Clinton

Take charge of your life!

“Your self-accountability is the best example to provide for others. Nobody ever learned anything from anyone who didn’t own their life.”

Elizabeth Gilbert

Every single voice counts. Speak fearlessly!

“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”

Maya Angelou

Shed your inhibitions and respect yourself!

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Be yourself because you are beautiful!

“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself”

Emma Stone

The full humanity of women

“Culture does not make people. People make culture. If it is true that the full humanity of women is not our culture, then we can and must make it our culture.”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

No one can ask for your silence

No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.

Alice Walker
