9 Funny Feminist Quotes To Get You Through The Week

No. 2 is so good.

While we're always down for some shots of empowerment via motivational quotes, there is nothing like a good funny feminist quote that will leave us feeling tickled and inspired. Quotes from famous women, including influential world leaders, actors, writers, and artists, impact the way we view the world and ourselves. When we think of the most inspirational feminist quotes, we tend to think of the most profound and serious words of wisdom. But the truth is, sometimes humor can be just as powerful.

The most popular feminist quotes deal with social issues, such as misogyny, equal pay, reproductive rights, representation within the media, diversity, and the overall experience of this thing we call "womanhood" (intersectional, of course — and preferred). Sometimes these topics can feel a bit heavy or too uncomfortable to openly discuss, which is why a little levity can help deliver the most important messages in a unapologetic, yet digestible, way. Whether it's funny feminist quotes on marriage, funny feminist quotes about love, or funny feminist quotes about motherhood, we can all use a good laugh about a worthy truth. Check out some of our favorite funny feminist quotes below.
