That is why it’s so important to remember certain quotes to empower and inspire women. It’s as if we are throwing away all the things past women leaders fought for. “A woman is like a tea bag: you cannot tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water.” “Don’t compromise yourself. “Figure out who you are separate from your family, and the man or woman you’re in a relationship with. “Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves. “Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”
