YOUR DAILY DOSE OF GIRL POWER



Inbetween International Womens Day last sunday and Mothers Day this sunday, what better way to celebrate girl power than with the two biggest days of celebrating ladies, I thought it was just aswel to post some of my favourite empowering quotes. Feminism is so important, and something I am constantly learning more and more about, and something that is definitely way more important and worthy of blogging about than whatever garms I'm wearing today...

"Conceal your flaws by sucker punching anyone who has the audacity to mention them
Miss Piggy

"This is your daily reminder that Kim Kardashian took a mans betrayal and turned it into a multi million dollar industry" 
Gabby Noone (@twelveoclock)

"Wake up every morning and tell yourself that you're a baddass bitch from hell, and that no one can fuck with you, and then don't let anybody fuck with you" 
 Kate Nash

"... women ARE complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy. But because people are crazy, and women happen to be people"
Tavi Gevinson

"Yeah you like me, you kinda like me, but if I was a guy then I think you'd love me. 
But I'm just a girl, and that's good enough for me"
Kate Nash (conventional girl lyrics)

"There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women"
Madeline Albright

"It really pisses me off that women don't get the same opportunities as med do, or money for that matter, 'cause lets face it, money gives me the power to run the show. It gives me the power to define our values, and define what's sexy and what's feminine, and that's bullshit.
At the end of the day, it's not about equal rights, it's about how we think, we have to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves"
Beyonce

When you’re a girl, you have to be everything. You have to be dope at what you do but you have to be super-sweet. And you have to be sexy and you have to be this and you have to be that and you have to be nice. It’s like, I can’t be all those things at once. I’m a human being.
Nicki Minaj

"Why do people say 'grow some balls'? balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding."
Betty White

"We can't be feminine, and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a fucking feminist and wear a fucking peter pan collar. So fucking what?"
Zooey Deschanel

"Like, why are we waiting for guys to come to us, Ilana? Did Amelia Earhart wait to be asked to fly around the world?
Definitely not.
She asked. And then they said no. But she still did it.
And she died, but she, like, died doing it"
Broad City


I kept this post fairly light, let me know what you thought of this post and if it had any effect on you. Also, if you have any favourite quotes of your own I'd love to hear them!
