43 Girl Power Quotes For Every Strong Woman Out There

A list of motivational girl boss quotes that will make you feel like a total badass

How is it like to be a girl boss? Do we have to own a business to be a boss babe? Do we need to force our opinions on others to feel powerful?

You may not know it. But if you are living life the way you want, you are already a girl boss. If you need some motivation to remind you that, here is a list of girl boss quotes to fire up your ambition.
