The Women’s March took place in Washington D.C. on Saturday January 21, 2017, to protect legislation and policies regarding human rights , women all over the world gathered together to share a simple message ” we will not be silenced”
We are of the belief that women’s rights are human rights and we should all be equally viewed the same, although we could not attend the event here are some 10 motivational quotes from the women’s march that will leave you empowered.
We are mothers. We are caregivers. We are artists. We are activists. We are entrepreneurs, doctors, leaders of industry and technology. Our potential is unlimited. We rise.
Once the heaviness [of the election] began to subside, an opportunity has presented itself to make real long-term change, not just for future Americans, but in the way we view our responsibility to get involved with and stay active in our communities. Let this weight not drag you down, but help to get your heels stuck in.
A movement is much more than a march. A movement is that different space between our reality and our vision. Our liberation depends on all of us.
Remember, the Constitution doesn’t begin with, ‘I, the president.’ It begins with, ‘We, the people.
We recognize that we are collective agents of history and that history cannot be deleted like web pages.
You have to run for office. Yes, you! I can see your faces. ‘No, no Mike. Not me. I’m shy.’ This is not the time for shy people. Shy people, you have two hours to get over it.
Continue to embrace the things that make you unique even if it makes others uncomfortable. You are enough. And whenever you’re feeling doubt, whenever you want to give up, you must always remember to choose freedom over fear.
Don’t get frustrated, get involved. Don’t complain, organize.
Maryum Ali, Muhammad Ali’s daughter
If we — the millions of Americans who believe in common decency, in the greater good, in justice for all — if we fall into the trap by separating ourselves by our causes and our labels, then we will weaken our fight and we will lose. But if we commit to what aligns us, if we stand together steadfast and determined, then we stand a chance of saving the soul of our country.
[Remember] we are not afraid, that we are not alone, that we will not back down, that there is power in our unity and no opposing force stands a chance in the faith of true solidarity.
Don’t feel bad if you missed the march, you can continue to uplift your fellow sisters by standing up for what you believe in and having a voice.
