If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.

Margaret Thatcher

Don’t let anyone speak for you, and don’t rely on others to fight for you.

Michelle Obama

The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

Ayn Rand
Atwood quotes about women power

It’s not my responsibility to be beautiful. I’m not alive for that purpose. My existence is not about how desirable you find me.

Warsan Shire

And really, how insulting is it that to suggest that the best thing women can do is raise other people to do incredible things? I’m betting some of those women would like to do great things of their own.

Jessica Valenti, Why Have Kids?

A woman is like a tea bag you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.

Eleanor Roosevelt

I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.

Jane Austen, Persuasion
Ayn Rand Quotes about women

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.

Rebecca West

Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.

Margaret Atwood

Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.

Charlotte Whitton

What is feminism? Simply the belief that women should be as free as men, however nuts, dim, deluded, badly dressed, fat, receding, lazy and smug they might be. Are you a feminist? Of course you are.

Caitlin Moran, How to be a woman.

The history of men’s opposition to women’s emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.

Virginia Woolf, A Room of One’s Own

No woman can call herself free who does not control her own body.

Margaret Sanger
Margaret Sanger Inspiring feminist quote

My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Woman’s degradation is in man’s idea of his sexual rights. Our religion, laws, customs, are all founded on the belief that woman was made for man.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Ruth Bader Ginsburg Quotes about women power

Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong, it’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.

G.D. Anderson

I think being a woman is like being Irish… Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the time.
