“The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I’m a woman Phenomenally.”


Before I get started with the popular quotes, I wanted to talk about Dr. Maya Angelou for a bit. Ok, so I have to admit, ever sense I entered Dr. Maya Angelou as a famous Feminist I have learned more about her than I have ever known. She was an absolutely incredible lady. She is what I would consider the ultimate Optimistic Feminist. When she did something she went above and beyond every time. Her failures were never wasted and with just a change in perspective she could change whatever it was into a success. Angelou when asked how she would describe herself she said “A working Woman.”


I just really felt like she needed this snip bit, and I highly suggest that you check out the post I did for her. She is the true meaning of what we try to accomplish here as Optimistic Feminists. And with that lets start the quotes!

When a man gives his opinion, he’s a man, When a woman give her opinion, she’s a bitch.”

~ Betty Davis

As soon as a woman get to an age where she has opinions and she’s vital and she’s strong, she’s systematically shamed into hiding under a rock.

~ Sarah Silverman

I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful, I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story. I will.

~ Amy Schumer

I’ve never been interested in being invisible and erased.”

~ Laverne Cox

It’s the fire in my eyes, The flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I’m a woman Phenomenally.

~Dr. Maya Angelou

My generation fought very hard for feminism, and we fought very hard to not be labeled as you had to have a husband or you had to be in a relationship, or you were somehow not a cool chick.

~ Stevie Nicks

There’s many women now who think, ‘Surely we don’t need feminism anymore, we’re all liberated and society’s accepting us as we are’. Which is just hogwash. It’s not true at all.

~ Yoko Ono

I’m speaking for a bunch of girls when I say that the idea that feminism is completely natural and shouldn’t even be something that people find mildly surprising, it’s just a part of being a girl in 2013.

~ Lorde

My mum fought for feminism in her day so instilled in me the importance of equality. She taught me so much about women.”

~ Chris Evans
