Earlier this week I was working on a presentation and wanted to include an inspirational quote, so naturally I went online and googled “inspirational quotes about women.” I could’ve spent a full day just clicking through the various sites: inspirational quotes about women to motivational quotes for women (and everything in between).
So many of the quotes were worth sharing, but I decided to share some of my favorites below.
- "I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels."
- Maya Angelou
- “The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”
- Helen Keller
- “We don’t have to do big things only small things with great love.”
- Sister Teresa
- “The fastest way to change society is to mobilize the women of the world.”
- Charles Malik
- “Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
- Timothy Leary
- “The most effective way to do it, is to do it.”
- Amelia Earhart
- “A woman with a voice is by definition a strong woman. But the search to find that voice can be remarkably difficult.”

- “Well-behaved women seldom make history.”

And, of course:
