50 Powerful Quotes From Women That Prove You Don’t Need A Man

For all the strong ladies out there.

If I’m being completely candid, many of the strong women quotes below were spoken by women with husbands, boyfriends, and lovers. However, that doesn’t mean they needed a man to thrive in the world.

If you’re finding it hard to cope with a breakup or you feel like you’re being overshadowed by your partner, read these strong women quotes.

They serve as a reminder that no matter what the status of your love life may be, you are always enough. Just you! Nobody else; on your own, being the boss lady that you are.

20 Best Reese Witherspoon Quotes About Ambition, Friendship & Powerful, Strong Women

Hollywood’s southern sweetheart is turning it up a notch.

Reese Witherspoon is an actress, producer, entrepreneur, mother, and activist who went from leading lady to inspiring women. Everyone is obsessing over her recent hit show Big Little Lies, and it’s time for the world to obsess over Reese too!

Reese Witherspoon is currently the third highest paid actress in the world, but her journey to getting there was a long one.

When Witherspoon was 14, she booked her first lead role in a feature film on accident. She went to an open casting call to play a small role in The Man in the Moon, but was cast as the lead instead.

But her real breakthrough came in 1999 when she was in Cruel Intentions opposite Ryan Phillippe, who she was dating at the time and married three months after the movie came out. While doing press for the film, Witherspoon was also pregnant with their daughter, Ava (who looks exactly like her). Surprisingly though, Witherspoon almost didn’t accept the role in the Cruel Intentions because her character didn’t have enough depth —​ so she worked with the director to rewrite her lines to create a multifaceted character who she would want to play.

Soon after, Reese Witherspoon played the role of Tracy Flick, an ambitious high school student running for school president, in the film Election. Although her performance was widely praised and helped her earn her first Golden Globe nomination, Witherspoon claimed that it was difficult for her to book roles after. Since Tracy Flick is such an extreme character and she played her so well, people believed that Witherspoon must be similar to Flick and were hesitant to work with her.

Reese Witherspoon reached a turning point in her career when she landed the role of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who tries to win her ex-boyfriend back by becoming a law student and following him to Harvard Law School in the hit movie, Legally Blonde. This performance led to her receiving her second Golden Globe Best Actress nomination and her first MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.

Then, in 2005, Reese Witherspoon portrayed June Carter Cash, Johnny Cash’s second wife, in Walk the Line and won her first Academy Award for Best Actress. About a year later, she went through a divorce from Ryan Phillippe, and in turn took a break from working …

65 Progressive Inspirational Quotes From Famous Celebrities

The best influential quotes from Hollywood’s hottest stars.

We all know these famous celebrities from Hollywood. We have their posters on our walls and their voices in our heads. We have been hearing their names and watching their television shows and movies for years. We tell ourselves that there was nothing like old Hollywood and imagine ourselves walking the red carpet in those fabulous dresses, and riding in those fancy cars, using those really long cigarette holders.

In reality, we know that being a celebrity isn’t all glamour. As hard as we fight for equal pay today, women in Hollywood back then had to fight to get even a fraction of what they deserved. In a time where many men believed women to be genetically inferior, these trailblazers took the world by storm, showing us that women can succeed in a male dominated business.

Alex Guy Balch was the first female film producer, all the way back in 1911. The Moving Picture News printed that she was, “a fine example of what a woman can do if given a square chance in life.” She ended up producing, directing, or supervising over 1000 films in her career (short films mostly, but some full length) — sometimes all three at once.

Lucille Ball helped invent syndication by having I Love Lucy filmed on quality tape instead of broadcast live. After she bought out her ex-husband, Desi Arnaz from their production company, Desilu Productions, she was also the first woman to run a major television studio. The company went on to produce hits like Mission: Impossible and Star Trek.

While Mary Tyler Moore wasn’t the first woman on TV to wear pants, she was the first to normalize the concept of women dressing casually. When asked by TV Guide about her character on The Dick van Dyke Show she said, “I had Laura wear pants, because I said, ‘Women don’t wear full-skirted dresses to vacuum in. Women kind of breathed a sigh of relief, too, and said, ‘Hey, that’s right. That’s what we wear.'”

Donna Reed served as an uncredited producer and director of her show, The Donna Reed Show way back in the 1950’s. This dubbed her the first female television executive in history!

Sometimes we forget that these larger than life figures were real everyday women. They were sisters, and friends, trying to put their stamp on the world. When we …
