These inspirational quotes posters from female authors are a perfect way to celebrate Women’s History Month in any classroom (especially an English or Language Arts one)! They would also look fantastic decorating the walls of your school’s literacy center or library. This set includes 28 posters in a convenient PDF format (one poster per page). You will find inspiring words from a curated collection of poets, novelists, and short story writers spanning many countries and literary genres. I really enjoyed researching significant female writers, searching for a dynamic quote for each one, and narrowing it down to the very best selections. By incorporating these posters into your classroom, you will be sending a subtle, but powerful message that women have been making steady and meaningful contributions to the literary world (and the world at large) for longer than they are often given credit. Let’s make Women’s History Month a year-round thing!
Each poster includes:
- an inspirational quote from an accomplished female author
- the name of the author and the years they lived (many are still alive)
- a brief (two line) description of each author and what they achieved in the literary world
You will find engaging and inspiring quotes from the following authors:
Murasaki Shikibu, Mary Shelley, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Mary Ann Evans, Selma Lagerlöf, Edith Wharton, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Virginia Woolf, Gabriela Mistral, Agatha Christie, Zora Neale Hurston, Ayn Rand, Tove Jansson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Madeleine L'Engle, Harper Lee, Maya Angelou, Ursula K. Le Guin, Margaret Atwood, Alice Walker, Jamaica Kincaid, Octavia E. Butler, Amy Tan, Herta Müller, J.K. Rowling, Zadie Smith, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Porochista Khakpour
Ideas on how to use these Female Authors Quotes Posters:
- Select your favorites and use them to make a bulletin board to celebrate Women’s History Month
- Display a new quote on your board each day of Women’s History Month for students to see as they walk into class (a great no-prep option!)
- Print them and make a border around your chalkboard
- Spread them out around your classroom and allow your students to discover them (you could even turn this into a scavenger hunt)
- Have your students use the quotes as the basis for a creative writing assignment or a position paper on whether they agree with the writer’s perspective
- Let your students choose one of the female authors to research in more depth as an extra credit or enrichment assignment
- Have each student find out more about a particular author and share what they learned as you present the corresponding quote (works well as an individual assignment if you have 28 or fewer students in your class, otherwise they would need to work with a partner)

- The posters will come as a PDF file that you can print or display on a screen.
- Each poster fits on one page of the PDF and each page is 8.5 inches by 11 inches (standard printer paper size).
- If you want to display them on a screen using a projector (with your SMART Board or Promethean Board for example), just open the file in Adobe and select “View” and then “Full Screen Mode”. From there, use the arrows on your keyboard (or the screen) to advance the slides. I’ve included a link to the Adobe page of directions detailing how to do this in the file as well.
- Printers vary so you may need to play around a bit with the printer settings to get the finished look you prefer. I recommend only printing one poster at a time when you first try it out so you can see how it looks and make sure it is what you want before you print the rest.
