Top 100 Inspirational Quotes For Women of 2024


Throughout history, women were being told what they should do, how to behave, how to think, and how to feel about certain things in their lives. In today’s era of feminism, it seems that women decided to fight back, and ask for more freedom and equality between genders. It is important to acknowledge that empowering women does not mean belittling or punishing men, as some may think. 
Suffering from gender role assumptions that place expectations upon anyone to live and act a certain way is something every human being has been facing. Some truly believe that equality is visible, because the patriarchal system no longer exists, but given the facts that females vote more than men in most of the countries, and they make up more than half the population, but still don’t take the half of seats of the leading country body, like Congress, don’t make those beliefs trustable.
No one can argue that the great strides toward gender equality have been taken over the past century, but it seems that there is more to be done. Empowering women is important in any society. It has been shown, since the beginning of time, that women can do great things. That’s why we made a list of 100 inspirational quotes for women from women. Take a look.
