Sample Quotes on Women (Women’s Studies):

Stop telling girls they can be anything they want when they grow up. I think it’s a mistake. Not because they can’t, but because it would have never occurred to them they couldn’t.

—Sarah Silverman

What do girls do who haven’t any mothers to help them through their troubles?

—Louisa May Alcott

Who would ever think that so much went on in the soul of a young girl?

—Anne Frank

I am in the delivery room with my niece moments after she brought her baby girl into the world. She is sobbing, ‘I feel so sorry for men,’ she says. ‘They can’t have babies.’ She was drowning in hormones, obviously, but never mind. Mothers know of what she spoke. So do fathers, though perhaps in a less immediately physical way. It is the joy that passeth all understanding. And, as with love, you can’t explain it to those who haven’t experienced it. That’s the unspoken truth.

--Kathleen Parker

There are certain things about women that men will never understand, in part because they have no interest in understanding them. They will never know how deeply we care about our houses—what a large role they play in our dreams for ourselves, how unhappy their shortcomings make us. Men think they understand the way our physical beauty—or lack of it, or assaults on it from age or extra weight—preys on our minds, but they don’t fully grasp the significance these things have for us. Nor can they understand the way physical comforts or simple luxuries—the fresh towel or the fat new cake of soap—can lift our spirits. And they will never know how much our lives are shaped around the fear of bad men and the harm they can bring us if we’re not careful, if we’re not banded together, if we’re not telling each other what to watch out for, what we’ve learned. We need each other’s counsel, and oftentimes it comes when we’re talking about other things, when we seem not to have much important on our minds at all.

--Caitlin Flanagan

Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

--Timothy Leary

What is enough? Enough is when somebody says, ‘Get me the best people you can find’ and nobody notices when half of them turn out to be women.

--Louise Renne

High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.

--Christopher Morley

It’s great to have someone to look up to. But you should want to be better than me.

--Danica Patrick, Most Successful Female NASCAR Driver

Forget teaching a man to fish; give woman a goat, and she’ll feed, house, and clothe a village.

--Kathleen Parker

Women live longer than men. They do better in this economy. More of ’em graduate from college. They go into space and do everything men do, and sometimes they do it a whole lot better. I mean, hell, get out of the way—these females are going to leave us males in the dust.

--Ronald Ericsson

The girl you were at fifteen, sixteen. Angry and nasty. Hungry for love…You’re always that girl. She never goes away. She’s inside you all the time. That girl is


—Megan Abbott

Men don’t oppress women any more than women oppress men.

—Warren Farrell

You can gauge the success of a society by how it treats its women.

—Barack Obama

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.


Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.

—Clementine Paddleford
