(15 strong and epic things said by these empowered women)
An empowered woman is the one who is able to make her own choices, the one who knows her worth and is not afraid to raise her opinion.
A lot of people see women empowerment or even feminism, as a threat to the rights and position of the male section in society. This is a very wrong notion.
The aim of empowering women is not to suppress anyone, it only wishes to help women discover the power that lies within them.
We need women to know what their rights are, they need to be set free to follow their dreams.
Let’s just support all the women out there to be and to accept who they are, and show them the path towards being independent.
It is simply about empowering rather than stopping each other from chasing our dreams.
Here is a list of 15 strong and epic things said by some empowered women:
“To all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful, and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.”-Hillary Clinton
“If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.”-Margaret Thatcher
“I’m tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay.”-Madonna
“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.”-Madeleine Albright
“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
“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made. … It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.”-Ruth Bader Ginsburg
“You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked ‘female.'”-Erin McKean
“A feminist is anyone who recognizes the equality and full humanity of women and men.”-Gloria Steinem
“Women are leaders everywhere you look—from the CEO who runs a Fortune 500 company to the housewife who raises her children and heads her household. Our country was built by strong women, and we will continue to break down walls and defy stereotypes.”-Nancy Pelosi
“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.”-Beyoncé

“When a woman is assaulted, one of the first questions people ask is, Did you say no? This question assumes that the answer was always yes, and that it is her job to revoke the agreement. To defuse the bomb she was given. But why are they allowed to touch us until we physically fight them off? Why is the door open until we have to slam it shut?”-Chanel Miller
“By propagating women’s nature as non-violent they are discouraging women from becoming fighters in the struggle for their own liberation and that of society.”-Anuradha Ghandy
“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”-Arundhati Roy
“Women have discovered that they cannot rely on men’s chivalry to give them justice.”-Helen Keller
“In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.”-Sheryl Sandberg
“I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story—I will.”
