But the good news is, we’re not about to let that happen. As long as we keep fighting to make a better world for ourselves and the future generation, we will be fine. We’re more than fine: we’re amazing, and it’s time the rest of the world recognizes that. Here are some empowering quotes from some of the most amazing women.

Best Women’s Empowerment Quotes

There is more to the world than what we can see, which is why women’s empowerment should be a priority in this generation. Women empowerment is more than just a buzzword, but rather a way to help women reach their full potential and be able to achieve their goals without the fear of being discriminated against for their gender.

Woman has always been the chief sufferer under this merciless machinery of the statutory law. Humbly she has borne the weight of man-made laws, surrendering to their tyranny even her right over her own body…. Against the State, against the Church, against the silence of the medical profession, against the whole machinery of dead institutions of the past, the woman of to‑day arises…. If she must break the law to establish her right to voluntary motherhood, then the law shall be broken.

Margaret Sanger

A strong woman is a woman determined to do something that others are determined not to be done.

Janelle Monae

You’re not too fat. You’re not too loud. You’re not too smart. You’re not unladylike. There is nothing wrong with you.

Jessica Valenti

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again!

Sojourner Truth

Sometimes when women get elected to positions of power they start acting like men. They start being tough like men. My vision and understanding of the world is a woman’s understanding of the world, not a man’s—I have never tried to copy a man. I think it’s very important that a woman remembers that she is a woman and not a man. You’re a woman, so keep being a woman and show women and men that you are a woman. This sends the very important message that women are equal to men.
