Empowering Quotes for Women

A community will not flourish if half its population is left behind. Here are quotes from notable figures on women empowerment.

“It’s the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I’m a woman Phenomenally.” Maya Angelou


“I measure the progress of a community by the degree of progress which women have achieved.” – B.R. Ambedkar


“Of course I am not worried about intimidating men. The type of man who will be intimidated by me is exactly the type of man I have no interest in.” – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


"...there is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women." - Kofi Annan


 "I think the economic empowerment of women that has been growing over the past decade is at the 'inflection point' with this global recession. Women are, we believe, the solution for their families in their ability to go out and increase household income." - Andrea Jung

"A woman caring for her children; a woman striving to excel in the private sector; a woman partnering with her neighbors to make their street safer; a woman running for office to improve her country - they all have something to offer, and the more our societies empower women, the more we receive in return." - Queen Rania of Jordan


"No struggle can ever succeed without women participating side by side with men. There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a third power stronger than both, that of women.” - Malala Yousafzai


"I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am.” - Oprah Winfrey


"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you" - Princess Diana


"Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we are scruyying to and from appointments and errands, We don't have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own 'to do' list." - Michelle Obama
