Looking for a quote by a woman to inspire your daughter, sister, mother, or friend? This is the book for you.
Did you know that only 5% of the entries in the defacto bible of quotations are attributed to women? In fact, more quotes are attributed to Anonymous than to female authors.
So where are all the quotes by women?
It is web-based company Quotabelle's mission to supply them. Quotabelle is compiling the most modern collection of sourced quotations by women and girls, and the book Beautifully Said is the result of their work.
Beautifully Said's 100 quotations are divided into 20 sections (she-themes): believes, builds, champions, coaches, competes, designs, discovers, entertains, explores, gives, heals, inspires, invents, laughs, leads, overcomes, pioneers, preserves, teaches, and writes. A broad range of women are featured in the book, including Nobel Peace Prixe winner Malala Yousafzai, author Laura Ingalls Wilder, surfer Lea Brassy, Facebook executive and author Sheryl Sandberg, mountaineer Alison Levine, ballet dancer Misty Copeland, children's author Beatrix Potter, chef and author Julia Child, designer Iris Apfel, and many more. With wonderful wisdom from diverse and distinct female voices, Beautifully Said is the perfect book of modern women's empowerment.
