“I am talking about believing that we have the power to actually transform our experience, change our lives, save our lives.” –Cherrie Moraga

“Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cure or built to suit a fashion model’s size. But when I start to tell them, they think im telling lies. I say, the curl of my lips. I’m a woman, Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman. That’s me.” –Maya Angelou

“I am a welder. Not an alchemist. I am interested in the blend of common elements to make a common thing. No magic here. Only the heat of my desire to fuse what already know exists. Is possible. I am the welder. I understand the capacity of heat to change the shape of things. I am suited to work within the realm of sparks out of control. I am the welder. I am taking the power into my own hands.” –Cherrie Moraga

It’s a long long road. It’s a big big world. We are wise wise women. We are giggling girls. We both carry a smile to show when we’re please. We both carry a switchblade in our sleeves.” –Ani Difranco

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.” –Sylvia Plath

“Sometime I said sometimes I hear my voice and it’s been HERE … silent all these years.” Tori Amos

“I found god in myself and I loved her…I loved her fiercely.” –Ntozake Shange

“Be who you are and will be. Learn to cherish that boisterous Black Angel that dirves you up one day and down another protecting the place where your power rises running like hot blood from the same source as your pain.” –Audre Lorde

“I am an endangered species. But I sing no victim song. I am a woman. I am an artist. And I know where my voice belongs. I know where my soul belongs. I know where I belong.” –Diane Reeves

“Out of the nuts of history’s same I rise up from a past that’s rooted in pain I rise I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide, welling and swelling I bear in the tide leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear I rise.” Maya Angelou

“If I have to I can do anything. I am Strong, I am Invincible. I am Woman” –Helen Reddy

“If I cant dance, I don’t want to be part of your revolution.” –Emma Goldman
