I created feminist inspirational quotes for the soul to show support for each other and woman-kind. This week I didn’t have too much time to do research, but I found a few feminist inspirational quotes that I liked. I hope that you will like them and can resonate with them too. Actually, feminism is something that is very close to my heart and my closest friends are feminists. I believe that it is an important movement that should be supported, not only for the women of today, but for women in generations to come.
Feminism doesn’t have to be masculine
When I think about feminism, I think that there are many misconceptions about the ideals that the ideology encompasses. One of them is the role of weakness and strength when it comes to feminism. I totally agree with Mary Winstead in her assertion that you don’t have to play masculine to be a strong woman. Strength is not always masculine, as the strongest people I know are timid, soft and caring. We cannot deny biology, our role as caregivers, our role as mothers. Who you are and what you stand for is a choice. I have to say that I stand for equitable outcomes in most instances and I understand the role of biology in what some might call “the weaker sex.” However, weakness is also subjective, as women have to deal with PMS, Childbirth and other difficult emotional and psychological factors from biological difference. These are in no way a form of weakness.
Why do we need to read feminist inspirational quotes?
Sometimes in this world we are forced to change our true nature and it can be a difficult process. However, we are all capable of inflecting change and playing a positive role in the world as our truest selves if we wish to. We need to know who we are and who we identify with. We also may face many challenging and difficult situations in our lives. It is at this point in time that we should support and encourage other women most. I read quotes when I am going through a situation that I don’t always understand and it often helps me to get through it. Therefore, we need to read feminist inspirational quotes when we need some motivation, guidance or direction. It can also motivate us to stay true to our path and not to give up on the things that we want to achieve.
Gender Equality is not a reality yet
I found this really great article from outlining why feminism is still relevant and important.https:/www.statista.com/chart/13167/how-long-will-economic-gender-equality-take/ According to statistics it will take a whopping 217 years for economic gender equality to be realised. (2018) There is also social inequality as well as political inequality which pose threats and demean the role of women in society. However, as we know the world is not composed of women in singularity and this is the reason why we should also choose to educate and incorporate men as much as possible.
Why women should support women more
We rise by lifting others, let there be no lie about it. When you choose to bring a woman down you are doing a disservice to yourself. It’s true that you cannot be friends with everyone in this word. However, if women support each other more and stop with jealousy and gossip we will all be capable of achieving the most out of life. We all have weaknesses. Some physical, some emotional and some psychological. This alone unites us in the struggle of life. Choose to play a positive role to the women you know. For me, as many know, it is how I choose to live my life. I am not without weakness, but I know that when I am more open to who my true self is, I will live a better life.
That’s it for this week!
Yours in feminism,
