This, my friends, is Words of Women. And it is my current favorite thing in cyber land.
This platform is exactly what it sounds like: a collection of the wisest words said by women of the past and present.
The founder and creator of the brand started noticing a trend on social media. She saw this overwhelming amount of negativity towards women whether it be from strangers, boyfriends or the pressure to maintain the looks of a celebrity.
She said, “I just wanted something on Instagram that negated all that. Something you could scroll past and finally feel really good about yourself.”
Mission accomplished. Throughout my daily scrolls through IG, it’s a refreshing change of pace to see quotes from some of history’s most brilliant female minds.
The account quickly grew as it now has over 45K followers on Instagram.
The Words of Women website is a hub filled with advice for women, crucial moments for women over history and so much more.
You can learn about Misty Copeland’s influence on the world of ballet as she became the first African American female principal at ABT. Or how the lunar eclipse brings an opportunity for change and growth within the female soul.
Words of Women address us women in all of our glory. They celebrate the characteristics that make us women, tackle the truth about womanhood and remind us why we should be damn proud of our femininity. They encourage self love and acceptance.
We don’t need to make excuses for who we are. We shouldn’t have to apologize for our tears or be afraid to wear the dress that fashion magazines say won’t flatter our figure.
Words of Women is more than just an Instagram account filled with inspirational quotes. It’s the raw truth. It is a place where women are recognized as the warriors they are. We are.
And wait there’s more. My favorite part: the newsletter!
When I see an email from Words of Women in my inbox, I stop whatever I’m doing to read, as I am never left without my thoughts being provoked and a desire to self-reflect.

Thank you for providing women with the hope, kindness and acceptance they deserve.
