18 Quotes From Modern Feminists To Open Your Eyes!

-

The Women's March, which took place on January and this March, was a massive success.  It became an international movement, where women (and some men) marched to fight for their rights.  

In honor of the historic Women's March, we have compiled a list of 18 quotes by modern day feminists.  We hope these inspire you.

Miley Cyrus

"I tell women to not be scared of anything. There’s absolutely no contradiction at all between being a feminist and taking your clothes off and being comfortable about displaying your sexuality. I’m for anybody and anything, I don’t care what you want to do, what you want to look like."

Beyonce

''I am a woman and when I think, I must speak."

Katy Perry

"I am a strong woman—and hear me roar."

Amber Tamblyn

"See everyone get the hell out of your way, see your power, your thump, your move, your shock, your quake. See all the marks on the world mean nothing compared to the marks you’re about to make."

America Ferrera

"I finally got my answer to that question: Who do you think you are? I am whoever I say I am."

Madonna

"Today marks the beginning, the beginning of our story. The revolution starts here, the fight for the right to be free, to be who we are, to be equal. Let’s march together through this darkness and, with each step, know that we are not afraid, that we are not alone, that we will not back down, that there is power in our unity and that no opposing force stands a chance in the face of true solidarity."

Natalie Portman

"I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible. I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two. I want both to be able to do whatever they want sexually without being called names. I want them to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad — human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a “feminist” story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with."

Alicia Keys

"We will not allow our bodies to be owned and controlled by men in government or any men anywhere for that matter. We will not allow our compassionate souls to get stepped on. We want the best for all Americans. No hate. No bigotry. No Muslim registry. We value education, healthcare and equality."

Jane Fonda

"Feminism is not talking about matriarchy; we're talking about democracy."

Ellen Page

"I don't know why people are so reluctant to say they're feminists. Maybe some women just don't care. But how could it be any more obvious that we still live in a patriarchal world when feminism is a bad word?"

Lady Gaga

“I am a feminist. I reject wholeheartedly the way we are taught to perceive women. The beauty of women, how a woman should act or behave. Women are strong and fragile. Women are beautiful and ugly. We are soft spoken and loud, all at once. There is something mind-controlling about the way we’re taught to view women. My work, both visually and musically, is a rejection of all those things. And most importantly a quest. It’s exciting because all of the avant-garde clothing, and musical style and lyrics that at one time was considered shocking or unacceptable are now trendy. Perhaps we can make women’s rights trendy. Strength, feminism, security, the wisdom of the woman. Let’ make that trendy.”

Kristen Stewart

"It's a male-dominated and driven business...You need to make something that's undeniably good. If a woman makes a bad movie, or does something stupid, then the door just slams shut. It's f*cked up."

Hillary Clinton

"To all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams."

J.K. Rowling

"We stand together. We stick up for the vulnerable. We challenge bigots. We don't let hate speech become normalized. We hold the line."

Adele

"He has no choice. I'll have no man telling me to shave my f*ckin' legs. Shave yours."

Jennifer Lawrence

"As women we don’t know we’re at a deficit because we have vaginas. It wasn’t until they had a headline like, 'Even though she’s a woman!' And I was like, 'Oh. I didn’t know to be looking out for that. How did this wittle vagina manage that? I carried a whooole movie. How did I do it, getting a period once a month?"

Rose McGowan

"I want people to think differently, and I want them to do better. I want to dismantle the status quo and I want to shatter the patriarchy. It is not working for society, and it is especially not working for women. I want us to be equal. I will not rest until it is."
