Women Inspiring Women: 30 of my Favorite Quotes

Sunday, March 11, 2018

I've just started watching an INCREDIBLE show on Amazon called Good Girls Revolt, and it is - in a word - inspiring. It is a show based on women rising above the "women are not meant to be bosses" norm in the late 60's - early 70's. This show is an excellent example of just how far women have come; using historic figures like Nora Ephron, and a monumental legal case that changed the course of history, how can a woman not LOVE this series?

When you watch, even just one episode, you feel like you need to go out and do something amazing because those women did. So, as a lover of quotes and inspirational memes, I have compiled a series of quotes by women, inspiring women. I hope that they will inspire you as much as they have inspired me!
