No matter who you are, it takes guts to chase after a dream, stand up against injustice, or stick to your convictions—especially in the face of adversity or different beliefs. Women, especially, deserve to be celebrated for their tenacity as they’ve advocated for themselves or became their own champions during difficult times.

For many females, it is common to have felt limited by others’ expectations or perceptions, or looked over due to gender stereotypes at least once in their lives. However, that does not mean that women have shied away from these challenges. Instead, sometimes even against all odds, ladies have doubled down on their determination and drive in order to accomplish something incredible. For some, this looks like training for a specific sport with the goal of being the best competitor. For others, this looks like fighting for political change to better the lives of strangers. For others still, it’s about finding empowerment by embracing tough seasons and hardships.

These strong women quotes celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of women across all industries. Despite facing gender inequalities, these women have persevered and continue to thrive. These quotes offer inspiration and motivation to keep fighting for what’s right. The quotes come from powerful women who have exhibited resilience, courage and strength in the face of adversity.
