5 Empowering Feminist Quotes from Inspiring Women

Words of wisdom from the trailblazers who make us proud to be women.

Read on to get inspired by the words of the trailblazing women who said it best.

1."What I will say is that what I have learned for myself is that I don’t have to be anybody else; and that myself is good enough; and that when I am being true to that self, then I can avail myself to extraordinary things. You have to allow for the impossible to be possible."

 Lupita Nyong'o


2. "Never ever accept ‘Because You Are A Woman’ as a reason for doing or not doing anything".

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
