Women have been depicted in literature in many different ways. In reality, women can be strong and powerful, especially once they emerge from their nutshells. Although depicted as the weaker sex, a woman is not always the victim. In fact it has been suggested that behind every successful man is a woman.
– Men seem to need a woman more than a woman needs them.
– Through thick and thin, the female figure evolves in her lifetime to become a powerful force in her own right.
– A woman uses her inner strength as a daughter, sister, wife and ultimately the mother figure to inspire and to protect those around her.
Empowering quotes to inspire women from all walks of life:
“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 a law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than a woman?” – Mahatma Gandhi
“Do you think, because I am poor, obscure, plain and little, I am soulless and heartless? – I have as much soul as you, – and full as much heart! And if God had gifted me with some beauty and much wealth, I should have made it as hard for you to leave me, as it is now for me to leave you!” – Charlotte Bronte from the novel JANE EYRE
“A woman must not accept; she must challenge. She must not be awed by that which has been built up around her; she must reverence that woman in her which struggles for expression.” – Margaret Sanger

“People think at the end of the day that a man is the only answer [to fulfilment]. Actually a job is better for me.” – Princess Diana
“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.” – Clare Boothe Luce
“I want to do is 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 Earhart
“I like to go out there like a strong woman, because I am strong. But I am also a woman who goes through all kinds of problems and highs and lows.” – Katy Perry
“Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.” – Caroline Myss
“A woman is like a teabag – you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
