Inspiring Quotes for Women’s History Month


Let’s get inspired this Women’s History Month.

March is Women’s History Month, a month dedicated to honoring and remembering the accomplishments and contributions of women throughout history.  To celebrate this month, let’s get inspired by some of the most influential female figures of both past and present.

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

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”— Alice Walker

“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own.”— Audre Lorde

“Some people ask: ‘Why the word feminist? Why not just say you are a believer in human rights, or something like that?’ Because that would be dishonest. Feminism is, of course, part of human rights in general — but to choose to use the vague expression human rights is to deny the specific and particular problem of gender. It would be a way of pretending that it was not women who have, for centuries, been excluded. It would be a way of denying that the problem of gender targets women.”— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

“Women and girls can do whatever they want. There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish.”— Michelle Obama

“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”— Simone de Beauvoir

“No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.”— Margaret Sanger

“We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.”— Malala Yousafzai

“A wise woman wishes to be no one’s enemy; a wise woman refuses to be anyone’s victim.”― Maya Angelou
