Women's History Month Quotes

In honor of Women’s History Month, the CTL is celebrating iconic women by sharing their inspirational quotes each week in March. The queens’ unbelievable, optimistic, tenacious, empowered sayings (QUOTES) for this week are:

“You don’t have to be anything but yourself to be worthy.”.

Tarana Burke

“Women, we endure those cuts in so many ways that we don’t even notice we’re cut. We are living with small tiny cuts, and we are bleeding every single day. And we’re still getting up.”

Michelle Obama

“There is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”

Virginia Woolf 

“Do not live someone else’s life and someone else’s idea of what womanhood is. Womanhood is you.”

Viola Davis 

“Stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be.”

Elizabeth Gilbert 

“Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness.”

Oprah Winfrey

“We have so much coming in as sisters, when is our interior life ever put at the forefront? We constantly want to give to other people … Too much of not caring for yourself is not a good thing. We’re bad at that as achievers. Self-care is a priority and we have to do it more.”

Ava DuVernay

“I am a Black Feminist. I mean I recognize that my power as well as my primary oppressions come as a result of my blackness as well as my womaness, and therefore my struggles on both of these fronts are inseparable.”

Audre Lorde
