10 Quotes for Motivation from Strong, Fierce Women


We all need a boost now and then. With the wage gap, one of the most contentious presidential elections in history, and the general girls-aren’t-as-good-as-boys mentality of previous generations, sometimes a badass gal just needs a reminder of how powerful she is. That’s where inspiring quotes from these fearless women come in so handy; how could anything be more motivational than a quote from someone who’s been there, done that, fought where you stand now, and has a bit of wisdom to share?

Just as we’d reach for the phone to call our mother on a bad day, or seek out the shoulder of a friend when the world turns our way, a quote for motivation from a personal hero can sometimes, if we’re listening, offer that lightening strike of bravery we need. More than pushing the agenda of the speaker, a quote from women of wisdom passes down the lineage and beliefs of a gender who’s always had to fight for their rights and capabilities, and we don’t plan to stop any time soon…
