15 additional quotes about women

“There are women who make things better… simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who- through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday… Women like you.”
Ashley Rice

To the Women of India (Young India, Oct. 4, 1930)
“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man. If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man’s superior. Has she not greater intuition, is she not more self-sacrificing, has she not greater powers of endurance, has she not greater courage? Without her, man could not be. If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?”
Mahatma Gandhi

“I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.”
Amelia Earhartrose
“A state that does not educate and train women is like a man who only trains his right arm.”
Jostein Gaarder

“You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
Brigham Young

“Women are never so strong as after their defeat.”
Alexandre Dumasrose
“A woman’s guess is much more accurate than a man’s certainty.”
Rudyard Kipling

“Some women are meant to change the world, while others are meant to hold it together. And then there are those of us who simply don’t want to be in it, because we know no matter how much we struggle, we can’t comfortably fit.”
Jodi Picoult

“There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.”
Muhammad Ali Jinnahrose
“We are women, and my plea is Let me be a woman, holy through and through, asking for nothing but what God wants to give me, receiving with both hands and with all my heart whatever that is.”
Elisabeth Elliot

“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change.”
Sheryl Sandberg

“I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.”
William Goldingrose
“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke . . . She will need her sisterhood.”

    I love reading about strong women and all the smart things they have said. Thank you for the inspiration. But I have to say, that at the same time as I get inspired by reading the quotes, I also get sad. Almost all the quotes are about men. Are we only strong when compared to men. Someday I wish our strengths are discussed more independent.

      Thanks for visiting and kind comment. I, too, am saddened by the position of women in society, and this inferior role of a woman is sadly defined by a man who puts himself in a superior position. Therefore, for the most part, quotes about the important role of women are often associated with men. Women and men are not the same, we have different qualities, but we are equal. Any man or woman who thinks differently is mistaken.

      I wish you a wonderful week,

    Happy international women’s day. It’s so important that we come to realize the equality that women have with men, rather than placing stereotypes and bias on what either side can or can’t do. Women have contributed so so much to the society and this awareness should really make us to sit down and think of that.

      True, the role of a woman is as important to society as the role of a man. Each of us contributes with our own qualities.

    I love your website and all your inspiring quotes.  I am a person who is lifted up every day by quotes of wisdom so I thank you for posting them.  These quotes about the importance of women in our society are priceless as women have been held back in so many parts of the world in so many ways.  Why? I think it’s just as William Golding said, “Women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been.”  Men have always been afraid that, if allowed, women will do things better than men!

      Thanks for visiting and your meaningful comment. I, too, am of the opinion that a man has begun to belittle a woman primarily because he is afraid of her abilities and power. It is a pity because if we work together and women and men join forces, we can make this society and the world much more beautiful.

      I wish you a wonderful week,

      Nina

    I enjoyed very much going through all these quotes. One of the most powerful for me was that of Anne Frank. Obviously, I have heard about Anne Frank my whole life. But it has been just recently that I got interested in her. I am presently reading her diary for the first time and am profoundly surprised!

      Wonderful that you read Anne Frank’s diary, I read it a long time ago.

      Thanks for the kind comment and encouraging words. True, much has already been done to achieve gender equality, but much remains to be done.

    This is a great set of quotes to celebrate international women’s Day.  They are all very relevant and inspirational.

    I particularly like and appreciated the one by Margaret Thatcher.  Now there is a woman who got things done.  No man would dare stand in her way.

    I think that it is very true that no one will give anyone power and it is indeed only those who step up and take it, that will ever get it.

    Keep them coming!

      Thanks for the kind comment and your thoughts. Yes, from time to time a woman appears in the political space who takes power into her own hands and shows what a woman can do.

    Love these quotes, especially the Margaret Atwood one. It needs to be more mundane and not a unicorn when you come across a powerful woman. I think we’re getting to that point though, which is nice to see.

    Those thoughts are very powerful and women that said them, changed the history. I was aware of Anna Frank, and I was riding her memoars. Every woman here gived a good thought and we have to celebrate women all year long. Love to read about women and their meaning and how they change humanity.

    This is a well-structured site, and a great way to provide daily inspiration to your audience. Personally, as a self-development blogger, I know the value of quotes. I call them fast mental food. Because there is a lot of knowledge, insight, and wisdom to drive from good quotes. Thanks for providing the quotes in this format.

    So many excellent quotes. So many points made that remind me of something learned by those working in economic development. This may sound very stereotypical but they very often found that if they made money available to the men of a village, then men would use it for drink and gambling. If they made money available to women of a village the women would start their own businesses and become self-sufficient. Very often the best single thing you can do to lift a community out of chronic poverty is to educate and give opportunities to girls and women.

      You wrote it down perfectly. I have been involved in gender equality projects in poorer areas in the past, and women who have received help in the form of knowledge have shown a great deal of ingenuity and independence. Thanks for your thoughts and kind comment.

      I wish you a wonderful week,
