7 encouraging quotes from empowered female celebs that will inspire every woman in us

In solidarity with International Women's Day, we compile motivational quotes from personalities all over the globe we believe can reshape how we see ourselves and the world in general.

1. Philippine Vice-president Maria Leonor "Leni" Robredo

"Feminism is not about women ruling the world so that our gender will never, ever have to face abuse. Feminism is about building bridges of understanding so that the world will no longer need a strict ruler to make it work."

2. Senator Risa Hontiveros

"Feminism is a fundamental and essential belief that every women, like every man, possessed fully of the dignity, the worth, the rights, of every other human being on earth.”

3. Oprah Winfrey

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness."

4. Angelina Jolie

"I was told that I was different – and I felt out of place, and too loud, too full of fire, never good at sitting still, never good at fitting in. And then one day I realized something, something I hope you all realize. Different is good. When someone tells you that you are different, smile and hold your head up and be proud."

5. Emma Watson

"Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom, it’s about liberation, it’s about equality.

6. Beyoncé

"We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead."

7. Taylor Swift

"Misogyny is ingrained in people from the time they are born. So to me, feminism is probably the most important movement that you could embrace."
