Please add your inspirational woman quotes and/or nominations of your own inspirational women.

*Elizabeth Cady Stanton 1815-1902

The moment we begin to fearthe opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls. Every truth we see is ours to give the world, not to keep for ourselves alone, for in so doing we cheat humanity out of their rights and check our own development.

Janis Joplin 1943-1970

Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.

This one from Helen Mirren. Everytime!

Tolleshunt Thu 07-Mar-19 23:14:14

I'm with Helen. Luckily I learnt this in my early 40s, after a lifetime of chronic anxiety, which I am now free of. Feels great!

Astrid Lindgren: “He’s the strongest man in the world”. “Man, yes”, said Pippi. “But I am the strongest girl in the world. Remember that”.

I love the Helen Mirren quote, seen it before. The older I get the fewer fucks I give! My fave quote is Maya Angelou: 'when a person shows you who they truly are, believe them'....reason I am getting divorced....

"NO" Rosa Parks.

It seems such a small word but that amazing woman helped to start turning the tide not only as a woman but a black woman living in a time when her words could have had her killed.

Yes to Rosa Parks and her decision to refuse to move-

"I would have to know for once and for all what rights I had as a human being and a citizen."

She was also so much more than the bus boycott, she was a civil rights activist and the chief investigator of sexual violence against black women for the NAACP long before that. Amazing woman.

I love that thegreylady I've been raising my 2 DD's to belive in bolstering other women up not tearing them down and my BF has been doing the same with her stepdaughters and her GD.

Who knew you could upload gifs. What an exciting revelation! grin

Just to add Rosa Parks also co-founded the Committee for Equal Justice a good decade before the bus boycott. They investigated racially motivated crimes especially sexual violence against women. They were bringing cases to national attention, encouraging reporting, lobbying the justice department, forcing governors to prosecute via public pressure. I'd recommend to anyone reading about her life, her activism for women was so amazing especially considering that she was oppressed both by sex and race.

Unfortunately, if I used the words fuck off more frequently, not only would I have lost many jobs, but my career would be over too. Not sure this is great advice.
