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:
“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.”
“Your self-accountability is the best example to provide for others. Nobody ever learned anything from anyone who didn’t own their life.”
“Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.”
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent”
“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself”
“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 person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.

Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 might have had a box office collection of 260 crores INR and entertained Indian audiences, but it's full of problematic stereotypes.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 starts with a scene in which the protagonist, Ruhaan (played by Kartik Aaryan) finds an abandoned pink suitcase in a moving cable car and thinks there is a bomb inside it.
Just then, he sees an unknown person (Kiara Advani) wave and gesture at him to convey that the suitcase is theirs. Ruhaan, with the widest possible smile, says, “Bag main bomb nahi hai, bomb ka bag hai,” (There isn’t a bomb in the bag, the bag belongs to a bomb).
Who even writes such dialogues in 2022?
Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
