March is Women’s History Month, so we are showing all the love to the ladies doing the damn thing. Let’s be honest, where would the world be without women? The best part of being a woman is just that; being a WOMAN. We literally make the world go round. Here are some quotes from our favorite urban millennial women:

“ A feminist is a person who believes in the power of women just as much as they believe in the power of anyone else. It’s equality, it’s fairness, and I think it’s a great thing to be a part of.”
– Zendaya

“There’s something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness, and the nerve to never take no as an answer.”
– Rihanna

“We need to reshape our own perception of how we view ourselves. We have to step up as women and take the lead.”
-Beyonce

“Women will be hidden no more. We will not remain hidden figures. We have names…It was woman that gave you Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It was woman that gave you Malcolm X. And according to the Bible, it was a woman that gave you Jesus. Don’t you ever forget it.”

-Janelle Monae

“Being a feminist is being equal to do what a man do.”

-Cardi B

“I want women’s rights to be equally honored, and uplifted, and heard…but I want to see us fighting the fight for all women — women of color, our LGBTQ sisters, our Muslim sisters.”
– Solange Knowles

“Black women aren’t bitter. We’re just tired of being expected to settle for less.”
– Issa Rae

“To be a black girl is to be one of the reasons the universe thrives, our lineage has taught me that I am integral, that we are important, even when society dismisses us, hiding the wonder of our presence, a trail set for and before us by generations of powerful and empowered Black women.”
– Yara Shahidi

“What I’ve learned from myself is that I don’t have to be anybody else. Myself is good enough.”
– Lupita Nyong’o
