As womxn, it is important we stick by each other’s sides and uplift one another whenever possible. Luckily for us, our generation loves to empower the other females in our lives! Let’s take a look back at some of the amazing things empowering American womxn have said in honor of Womxn’s History Month:

“The most important thing is to enjoy your life– to be happy– it’s all that matters.” –Audrey Hepburn

“Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” –Ella Fitzgerald

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” –CoCo Chanel

“If you’re one of those people who has that little voice in the back of her mind saying, ‘Maybe I could do [fill in the blank],’ don’t tell it to be quiet. Give it a little room to grow, and try to find an environment it can grow in.” –Reese Witherspoon

“I found that ultimately if you truly pour your heart into what you believe in— even if it makes you vulnerable— amazing things can and will happen.” –Emma Watson

“Women have to harness their power— it’s absolutely true. It’s just learning not to take the first no. And if you can’t go straight ahead, you go around the corner.” –Cher

“We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all of the power we need inside ourselves already.” –J.K. Rowling

“Women are always saying, ‘We can do anything that men can do.’ But men should be saying, ‘We can do anything that women can do.’” –Gloria Steinem

“You could make a case that, along with the technological revolution, the most provocative upending destabilizing thrilling change in the course of human history is that we’re finally in it. … We’re here now, women are in the world, and we will not be bullied.” –Meryl Streep
