10 Awesome Women’s Empowerment Quotes Worth Sharing

As women always seeking to be our best selves, we must remember that we are not alone in this journey. There’s a sisterhood of women just like us all around the world who want to be the women they were created to be. We all have moments on our way when we may feel isolated or discouraged, but we can always look to the shared wisdom of strong women around us.

Here are some powerful quotations from women that speak to the strengths of women — and challenge us all to continue on our journeys:

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy — the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” –Brené Brown

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” –Ella Fitzgerald

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.” –Marie Curie
