In honor of Women's History Month, this PowerPoint presentation includes quotes by 21 inspirational women. Each quote is on its own slide, along with a picture of the individual and a brief description of what she is known for.
There is a diverse mix of women, including both historical figures and modern role-models. This is a great way to inspire your students and introduce them to famous women they may not have heard of. The quotes are a mix of general inspiration (following dreams, being successful, etc.) and quotes about fighting sexism and prejudice. I've included 21, so you can pick and choose which ones you like best (since Spring Break usually cuts off a few days of March)
This would be a great warm-up or closure to class, could be used for writing prompts or to spark class discussions. They are visually appealing and the thought-provoking.
