As Hillary Clinton enters the final leg of her presidential campaign, here are some of her most powerful quotes

The race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump to reach The White House is now in its final moments. Donald Trump’s quotes might have grabbed the most attention over the last ten months, but here are some memorable words from the woman who stood a very real chance of getting becoming the first female POTUS at the US election result 2016.

On keeping an open mind

‘I’ve always believed you can learn something from nearly everybody you meet, if you’re open to it.’

On kindness

‘We should remember that just as a positive outlook on life can promote good health, so can everyday acts of kindness.’

On looking forward

‘Every moment wasted looking back, keeps us from moving forward… In this world and the world of tomorrow, we must go forward together or not at all.’

On feminism

‘Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights. Let us not forget that among those rights are the right to speak freely – and the right to be heard.’

On criticism

‘Take criticism seriously, but not personally. If there is truth or merit in the criticism, try to learn from it. Otherwise, let it roll right off you.’

On female empowerment

‘We need to understand that there is no formula for how women should lead their lives. That is why we must respect the choices that each woman makes for herself and her family. Every woman deserves the chance to realize her God-given potential.’

On keeping her independence

‘I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfil my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.’

On Bill

‘You want me to tell you what my husband thinks? My husband is not secretary of state; I am. If you want my opinion, I will tell you my opinion. I am not going to be channelling my husband.’

On ambition

‘Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in. And, when you stumble, keep faith. And, when you’re knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can’t or shouldn’t go on.’

On women having a voice

‘Too many women in too many countries speak the same language — of silence.’

On feminism (again)

‘I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I’m well aware of, but that’s just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history — empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves.’

On gay rights

‘To LGBT men and women worldwide, let me say this: wherever you live and whatever the circumstances of your life, whether you are connected to a network of support or feel isolated and vulnerable, please know that you are not alone.’

On work

‘Don’t confuse having a career with having a life.’

On tough times

‘There is a sense that things, if you keep positive and optimistic about what can be done, do work out.’

On life

‘I choose my cards. I play them to the best of my ability. Move on to the the next hand.’

On being assertive

‘There’s that kind of double bind that women find themselves in. On the one hand, yes, be smart, stand up for yourself. On the other hand, don’t offend anybody, don’t step on toes, or you’ll become somebody that nobody likes because you’re too assertive.’

On moaning

‘I can’t stand whining. I can’t stand the kind of paralysis that some people fall into because they’re not happy with the choices they’ve made. You live in a time when there are endless choices… Money certainly helps, and having that kind of financial privilege goes a long way, but you don’t even have to have money for it. But you have to work on yourself… Do something!’

On the role of the First Lady

‘We used to say in the White House that if a place is too dangerous, too small or too poor, send the First Lady.’

On realising her ambitions

‘I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime.’

8 Powerful Quotes by Women at the Democratic National Convention

Last night, Hillary Clinton made history when she officially became the first woman to become a major party’s nominee.

At the Democratic National Convention, powerful people gathered to praise Clinton’s accomplishments and laud the efforts of other women during this historic election cycle. Here are a few of Motto’s favorite moments so far:

1. Lena Dunham: “22 years ago, Hillary declared that women’s rights are human rights.”

I’m a pro-choice, feminist, sexual assault survivor with a chronic reproductive illness. Donald and his party think I should be punished for exercising my constitutional rights, and his rhetoric about women takes us back to a time when we were meant to be beautiful and silent. Meanwhile, 22 years ago, Hillary declared that women’s rights are human rights. And she made it possible for my fellow sexual assault survivors in my home state of New York to have access to safe, immediate care in any emergency room. Hillary knows that access and opportunity are the American promise – not transphobia, Islamophobia, xenophobia, and systemic racism. She knows that hatred of all kinds is ours collectively to change, not to ignite for the craven purpose of seeking power.

2. Lucia McBath, Jordan Davis’ mother: “Hillary Clinton isn’t afraid to say, ‘Black lives matter.’”

Hillary Clinton isn’t afraid to say black lives matter. She isn’t afraid to sit at a table with grieving mothers and bear the full force of our anguish. She doesn’t build walls around her heart.

Not only did she listen to our problems, she invited us to become part of the solution.

3. First Lady Michelle Obama: Hillary Clinton “has the guts and the grace to keep coming back and putting those cracks in that highest and hardest glass ceiling until she finally breaks through.”

Leaders like Hillary Clinton who has the guts and the grace to keep coming back and putting those cracks in that highest and hardest glass ceiling until she finally breaks through, lifting all of us along with her.

That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.

4. Eva Longoria: “My family never crossed a border — the border crossed us.”

I’m from a small town in South Texas and if you know your history, Texas used to be part of Mexico. Now, I’m 9th generation American. My family never crossed a border — the border crossed us. So when Donald Trump calls us criminals and rapists, he’s insulting American families. My father is not a criminal or a rapist. In fact, he’s a United States veteran. …

When he said that a wife who works is a very dangerous thing, he not only insulted me, he insulted my mother who worked as a special-education teacher for 40 years and raised four children while being a wife.

5. 11-year-old Karla Oritz: “I have hope.”

I want to grow up to be a lawyer so I can help other families, like us. I have hope. (Clinton) wants me to have the worries of an 11-year-old, not the weight of the world on my shoulders

6. Senator Elizabeth Warren: “I come to you as the daughter of a janitor, a daughter who believes in an America of opportunity.”

I come to you as the daughter of a janitor, a daughter who believes in an America of opportunity. The hand of history is on our shoulders. We know how to build a future, a future that works not just for some of our children, but for all of our children. We know, and we must have the courage to make it happen.

This is about our values, our shared values with our candidates Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine!

We believe that no matter who you are, no matter where you’re from, no matter who you love, equal means equal. Hillary will fight to make sure discrimination has no place in America. And we’re with her!

7. America Ferrera: “Not everyone looks at the millions of young people like me…and sees an investment.”

As a child of Honduran immigrants, I am profoundly grateful for the access and opportunity that exists in this extraordinary nation. I was educated in public schools; my talents were nurtured through public arts programs and occasionally I needed a free meal to get through the school day. Not everyone looks at the millions of young people like me – children born into struggling families, children born to immigrant parents, children who are immigrants themselves – and sees an investment. But Hillary has spent the last 30 years proving what she sees in us. Not our color, gender, or economic status, but our capacity to grow into thriving adults able to contribute great things to this country.

8. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: “She knows that safeguarding freedom and security is not like hosting a reality TV show.”

Hillary and I share a few things in common. We both went to Wellesley College – so I know where she got her study habits. We are both mothers and grandmothers – so I know where she got her management skills. But we also know what it’s like to step off that plane with the words “United States of America” on it. She knows that safeguarding freedom and security is not like hosting a reality TV show. It is a complex, round-the-clock job that demands not only a steady hand and a cool head, but also a big heart. You are not just representing yourself, you are there for all of us.

5 Ways We Can Empower Women Globally

By Hira Saeed February 20, 2019

For sustainable development, any progressive nation should take into account critical issues like gender equality and women’s economic empowerment. As evident from surveys, higher female earnings greatly contribute to children’s education and family health, impacting the overall economic growth of a nation. Statistically speaking, women’s contribution to waged work jumped from 42% to 46% between 1997 and 2007. Evidently, achieving women’s economic empowerment is the key to solve issues like gender inequality and poverty and to foster inclusive economic growth as well.

Why Women’s Economic Empowerment Matters?

Women are known to contribute significantly to economics in the form of business, entrepreneurial work, or unpaid labor (sadly!). While women living in some parts of the developed countries have the role of decision maker and influencers, gender discrimination remains a debilitating social issue in many parts of the world, and those subaltern women are often alarmingly affected by poverty, discrimination, and other forms of vulnerable exploitations.

As any developing nation would agree, sustainable economic growth is unthinkable without women empowerment, and measures for gender inclusion is the driving factor of social progress and economic growth. Working women have an enormous contribution to education, health, and wellness and therefore achieving gender equality is indispensable to holistic developments.

Ways to Empower Women for Sustainable Development

As issues of women’s economic empowerment and gender equality gain momentum on the global stage, nations across the globe are implementing incredible measures to reduce thegender gap and promote economic equality. To play your part in the movement, some of the ways we can follow of achieving women’s economic empowerment for a sustainable development are discussed below:

1. Place women as leaders and give them decision making roles

Although many women are now powerful contributors to the economy of some states, gender equality is still a myth in the greater part of the world. Women have actively started participating in the tech industry, food production, natural resource management, domestic wellness, entrepreneurial work, as well as energy and climate change. But, most women still don’t have access to good job opportunities and resources to get a better-paid job. As the focus shifts towards inclusive economic structures, providing women with leadership opportunities and making them a part of decision making can go a long way in achieving women’s empowerment.

2. More Job Opportunities for Women:

Despite being significant contributors to social and financial development, women don’t have access to equal job opportunities. Equal rights programmes can invest significantly in promoting decent jobs and public policies, advocating growth and development.

3. Invest in Women’s Entrepreneurial Ideas, Emotionally and Financially:

An effective way of tackling gender inequality is entrusting women with entrepreneurial work. The state can take initiatives to train women in business skills for better job opportunities. Looking at the global developments, many developing countries are spending a percentage of annual revenues in women’s developments. By investing in women’s education and providing them with entrepreneurial opportunities, the unequal pay gap can be ruled out from the socio-economic scene, encouraging women to increase their participation in the supply chain.

4. Taking Action against Unpaid Labour Work:

One of the biggest concerns about gender inequality is women’s unpaid labor. Many marginalized groups, including rural women and domestic workers, are often deprived of economic independence and many times their labors go unnoticed by society. With empowerment policies striving to raise the incomes of women, resources can be appropriately managed to eradicate the issue. Unpaid labor is a growing concern among many developing countries, and this is primarily associated with rural and low-skilled workers. By controlling the driving factors and protecting women from violence and social abuses, women can be encouraged to explore and utilize their potential.

5. Mentoring Women Professionally and Personally:

Implementing fancy rules cannot drive away unequal pay gaps and the lack of job opportunities for women. To eliminate the problem from the grass-root levels, gender-sensitive economic policies should be deployed. To help women actualize their entrepreneurial goals and promote them as leaders, mentoring programmes should adopt a more holistic approach wherein both personal and the professional aspects are taken care of. Income-making skills are not always successful in building empowering personalities, and empowerment schemes can launch competent mentoring programmes to cater to the growing fiduciary demands.

Closing Thoughts:

The women empowerment programmes are investing abundantly in the welfare and empowerment of women, encouraging women to break free from their traditional roles and do away with gender stereotypes. There are various ways of achieving women’s financial empowerment and the aforementioned recommendations are only to name a few. To keep up with the changing global trends and fulfill sustainable development goals, it’s time to break barriers and explore alternative programmes for advocating equal opportunities for women and promoting financial inclusivity.

1 Create a safe space: Women in South Asia often have nowhere to gather with other women and talk about issues like gender equity, women’s rights, or health. READ Centers provide a safe, trusted space for women to gather and learn.

“The Center is a safe place for women, and we don’t really need approval from our family to visit.”

2 Support independence and mobility: Most women in rural Nepal and India have to ask their husbands for permission to leave home. Because of their local READ Center, a large majority of women (75-77%) report being able to freely travel outside of their home unaccompanied.

3 Teach women to read: If you are illiterate, simple things like reading signs on a road, numbers on a phone, or directions on a medicine bottle make daily life a struggle. READ Centers teach thousands of women to read each year.

“, I felt like I was blind. I began to see the world after coming to the library.”

4 Increase savings and income: 63% of women increased their savings or income after joining savings cooperatives at READ Centers in Nepal. Savings cooperatives allow women to invest money and then take turns receiving micro-loans to start micro-businesses or invest in education for their children.

5 Teach job skills and seed businesses: Women learn beekeeping, mushroom farming, sewing, and other income-generating skills through training programs at READ Centers. One in five Nepali women report going on to start her own income-generating business after joining a savings cooperative and taking skills training at a READ Center.

6 Build self-esteem and confidence: A majority of women (58-83%) report that their self-esteem or confidence has increased since coming to a READ Center – helping them to become more comfortable speaking in front of groups and sharing opinions.

7 Boost decision-making power: About two-thirds of women in Nepal (62%) and India (68%) say that they have greater decision-making power in their homes and communities as a result of coming to the READ Center.

“We were mostly busy doing household activities before… we now can travel outside of the village alone, in our family, and participate in decisions related to our children’s education.”

8 Impact health: Women report increased influence in their families and communities after receiving training or information from their local READ Center on health care, family planning, domestic violence and reproductive rights. Almost all READ Center users (88-97%) access health information and services at Centers that they would not otherwise be able to access.

“I learned about women’s empowerment, women’s rights, gender equity… Now I can raise my voice against any form of violence…”

9 Build networks: By building social networks, women have more support and greater opportunities to effect change in their communities. Three-quarters of women in Nepal and half in India and Bhutan report expanding their network through their local READ Center. Women say that once this network is in place, they are emboldened by the knowledge that they are not alone in facing issues like domestic violence, reproductive health or family planning, and that they are inspired to help other women in their community by sharing the knowledge they have learned about these topics.

10 Create public leaders: In South Asia (particularly Bhutan), women rarely hold public leadership roles. READ Centers provide leadership training for women to increase their presence in the public sphere. 61-65% of women report that they are now able to express their opinions in public or in their home. Women report joining committees, facilitating meetings, participating in protests, raising their voices against violence, and organizing community programs.

“Before joining the Center I had a belief that women were bound to be in the house as housewives. But I realize that… women are also capable of doing everything.”

11 Great Women’s Empowerment Workshop Ideas

What is a women’s empowerment workshop? Essentially, it’s an event designed to help women gain confidence, practice self-care, and support each other’s personal or professional success. Whether you’re hosting a multi-day retreat or a break-out group at a conference or convention, these 11 women’s empowerment workshop ideas can be adapted to suit your group’s needs. From games and activities, to guest speakers and presentations, you’ll find plenty of options here to make your women’s empowerment group a success!

1. Be selective — but not exclusive

Before you start planning activities, decide what objectives you want this group to achieve. Is your goal to help women succeed in the workplace — or in higher education? Are you working with college students or entrepreneurs? The focus of your group will depend on the age, goals, and life experience of your participants, so it’s important to have an idea of who will attend.

Because of this, it may be helpful to have an application process or selection criteria for your event. If it’s a closed workshop with a limited number of spaces, ask applicants to submit a short bio or mission statement so you can make sure everyone is on the same page. At the same time, you can avoid excluding people who want to attend by offering a scholarship or discounted tickets to those who can’t afford it.

2. Rent a memorable venue

One of the best ways to make an impact with your event is to host it at a space that can live up to the occasion. Renting a Peerspace venue is among the top women’s empowerment workshop ideas because you’ll find spaces that offer everything from feminine chic to business casual vibes.

Plus, many Peerspace venues come with professional lighting and A/V gear available on-site or to rent from a local vendor. Choose a space that has all of the amenities you need, from a yoga studio with hardwood floors to a modern industrial kitchen. If you can’t find something that you need on-site, call up the Concierge service to see if they can have it delivered.

In fact, you can even design and create your own Peerspace venue, as these two women did when they created the New Women Space in Brooklyn!

3. Host a coding bootcamp

It’s becoming a bit of a cliche, but learning to code is still a great way to empower women to find jobs in tech and related STEM fields. From Women Who Code to the Hackbright Academy’s All Women’s Coding Bootcamp, there are dozens of organizations out there offering coding events in women-only environments. If you want to host your own, just plan your event at a Peerspace venue like this coworking space in Chicago with free Wi-Fi and plenty of desk space.

4. Have a public speaking contest

Public speaking can be difficult for anyone, but it’s especially important for women in business and politics to be able to address a large audience with confidence. Give your participants the chance to practice their skills by hosting a Toastmasters-style public speaking event.

5. Plan a photo or video project

There’s no better way to push back against the male gaze than by taking charge of the camera. Global Girls Media has been empowering female activists and journalists around the world with their women-centric video projects. In the US, the Female Farmer Project documents women working in agriculture to overturn the typical stereotype of the male farmer.

A photo project is an especially great women’s empowerment workshop idea for young people, who may be social media savvy, but not yet familiar with media criticism or gender theory.

6. Host a mini maker faire

Laser cutters, 3-D printers, and other tools can be a lot of fun to use — but they can also be hard to get access to if you aren’t part of a makerspace. Add some hands-on activities to your event by hosting a mini-maker faire at this creative workspace in Berkeley.

7. Plan a multicultural cooking class

With so many female chefs in the media, it may not seem like an industry that women need to be empowered to enter. But for those who don’t fit the image of a celebrity chef, it can still be a challenging industry to break into — particularly for immigrants and women of color. That’s why Across Our Kitchen Tables focuses on empowering women to share their traditional practices and recipes — even if they don’t have a formal background in the culinary industry.

You can host your own cooking class at one of the many Peerspace venues that includes an industrial kitchen or even a studio kitchen for video and Instagram shoots.

Explore Peerspace

8. Host a memoir-writing activity

Whether your workshop is geared toward experienced bloggers or first-time writers, hosting a memoir-writing exercise is a great way to encourage creativity and explore new ideas. Invite a well-known writer like Cheryl Strayed (author of Wild) to lead your workshop, or come up with your own exercises and share the results of your work in a group feedback session.

9. Head outdoors — or rent a yurt!

You don’t have to hike the Pacific Crest Trail to find inspiration outdoors. Include a short hike during your workshop, or choose a scenic outdoor venue (such as a yurt) to host your entire event. Plan for guided meditations, embodiment exercises, and other wellness activities that combine reflection and relaxation in a natural setting.

10. Attend an equine leadership workshop

Leadership is an important skill to include in any women’s empowerment workshop, but how can you offer new insights that haven’t been explored already? One idea is to include equine assisted coaching (EAC) in your agenda. Although this involves traveling to a farm or ranch, working with horses is a great way to put leadership skills into practice in a hands-on way.

11. Screen a movie

Conclude your women’s empowerment workshop with a screening of an inspiring documentary or movie at a private screening room. Whether it’s a mainstream movie like Wonder Woman, or something a little more subtle, choose a film that will inspire your guests to keep moving toward their goals even after they walk out the door of your workshop.

Choosing the right women’s empowerment ideas can be tricky, as each of your guests will have their own expectations of what the workshop should be. That’s why we’ve tried to find as broad a range of women’s empowerment workshop ideas as possible. Whether you stick to a specific industry or career path, or decide to make your event more open-ended, use these ideas as a guideline to put together the perfect workshop agenda for your group.

The Most Feminist Michelle Obama Quotes Will Remind You How She’s Everything A FLOTUS Should Be & More

President Obama has instituted plenty of policies that are great for women — hi, free birth control — but he’s not the only feminist living in the White House. Michelle Obama has shared plenty of feminist quotes, too, and her words are seriously inspiring for women everywhere. In one of the most recent examples, Obama wrote an essay for The Atlantic earlier this month about Let Girls Learn, the White House’s initiative to help educate the 62 million girls around the world who aren’t in school. Obama believes the United States has a moral obligation to help girls access education, and she plans to help achieve that goal.

It’s clear from her essay that Obama is passionate about helping young girls continue their education, but that’s not the only women’s rights issue she cares about. Obama has spoken out about everything from the importance of motherhood to her favorite feminist “girl power” playlist. It’s obvious she and the president are on the same page about gender equality, and she’s got the record to support her statements. ” As a first lady, a mother, and a human being, I cannot walk away from these girls, and I plan to keep raising my voice on their behalf for the rest of my life,” Obama wrote in The Atlantic. And as these quotes demonstrate, Obama has already raised her voice to support women plenty of times.

“Every mother works hard, and every woman deserves to be respected.”

Obama tweeted this in 2012, and it’s as true now as it was then. True feminism means supporting women’s decisions, even if you don’t personally agree with them. Obama is reminding us that whether or not someone chooses to be a mother is no one’s decision but her own, and we should respect women’s choices either way.

“No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half of its citizens.”

Obama shared this quote in May 2014, when she addressed the class of African fellows who spent six weeks in the United States for the Mandela Washington Fellowship. Obama told the fellows that leadership includes creating opportunities for all people, including women and girls. During the address, Obama also said that “any man who uses his strength to oppress women is a coward, and he is holding back the progress of his family and his country.”

“There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.”

Obama has said that she encourages her daughters to be whatever they want to be as they grow up. In this 2012 quote, during a speech about the United States having a female president in the future, Obama said that she tells her daughters that “women and girls can do whatever they want.” She added that “there is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish,” whether that’s in politics or in other fields.

“When girls are educated, their countries become stronger and more prosperous.”

Before writing about Let Girls Learn for The Atlantic, Obama was already promoting girls’ education across the globe. Obama shared this quote during a 2013 visit to Africa, where she visited an all-girls middle school in Dakar, Senegal.

“As women, we must stand up for each other.”


Intersectionality is something that’s too often absent from discussions of feminism in America. In a 2009 speech at the State Department Women of Courage Awards, Obama recognized that fact, saying that women need to support each other:

The women we honor today teach us three very important lessons. One, that as women, we must stand up for ourselves. The second, as women, we must stand up for each other. And finally, as women, we must stand up for justice for all.

“You don’t want to be with a boy who’s too stupid to appreciate a smart young woman.”

Michelle Obama shared this statement, along with other feminist gems, when addressing young people at the “Power of an Educated Girl” panel at the Apollo Theater in New York this September. Obama also advised teen girls to “beat the boys” by putting time into their educations.

“When you’ve worked hard, and done well, and walked through that doorway of opportunity, you do not slam it shut behind you. You reach back.”

Michelle Obama shared this gem while speaking at the 2012 DNC convention. She again reminded people that feminism isn’t just about helping yourself — it’s about making sure others have the same opportunities, whatever their gender, race, or socioeconomic status.

It’s clear that equal rights are a priority for both President Obama and Michelle Obama. Whatever Michelle Obama does next, whether it’s continuing her work with Let Girls Learn or starting a new initiative, it’s sure to benefit everyone, especially women.

7 inspirational quotes from Barack Obama that show why we need more feminists like him

Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the United States of America, from January 2009 to 20 January 2017.

Barack Obama

Barack Obama has been vocal about women empowerment, gender equality, and right to equal pay, and as a father to daughters Malia and Sasha, he has proudly worn the feminist tag.

In his time as the President of the United States, Obama and his administration also focused on some of the challenges women face, such as education, entrepreneurship, health, violence, and leadership. Time and again he has publicly acknowledged the role of the women in his life, especially his wife, Michelle Obama.

Among the world leaders he has been a vocal agent of change and always led by example. This is the reason why many women admire and world look up to him.

On his birthday today we celebrate the leader, the feminist, the father, and the husband with some of his choicest quotes:

“That’s what 21st century feminism is about: the idea that when everybody is equal, we are all more free.”

“For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts.”

“We must carry forward the work of the women who came before us and ensure our daughters have no limits on their dreams, no obstacle to their achievements, and no remaining ceilings to shatter.”

“We need to keep changing the attitude that teaches men to feel threatened by the presence and success of women.”

“It is absolutely men’s responsibility to fight sexism too. And as spouses and partners and boyfriends, we need to work hard and be deliberate about creating truly equal relationships.”

“We need to keep changing the attitude that punishes women for their sexuality and rewards men for theirs.”

“The most important people in my life have always been women. I was raised by a single mom, who spent much of her career working to empower women in developing countries. I watched as my grandmother, who helped raise me, worked her way up at a bank only to hit a glass ceiling. I’ve seen how Michelle has balanced the demands of a busy career and raising a family.”

“I refuse to stop fighting now — for the sake of my daughters and yours, we must do better to make sure women are respected and treated equally.”

Human Rights Day Quotes

Today, poverty prevails as the gravest human rights challenge in the world. Combating poverty, deprivation and exclusion is not a matter of charity, and it does not depend on how rich a country is. By tackling poverty as a matter of human rights obligation, the world will have a better chance of abolishing this scourge in our lifetime….Poverty eradication is an achievable goal. �
– UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour, 10 December 2006
It is difficult to imagine today just what a fundamental shift the Universal Declaration of Human Rights represented when it was adopted sixty years ago. In a post-war world scarred by the Holocaust, divided by colonialism and wracked by inequality, a charter setting out the first global and solemn commitment to the inherent dignity and equality of all human beings, regardless of colour, creed or origin, was a bold and daring undertaking.
– High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour
Human rights education is much more than a lesson in schools or a theme for a day; it is a process to equip people with the tools they need to live lives of security and dignity. On this International Human Rights Day, let us continue to work together to develop and nurture in future generations a culture of human rights, to promote freedom, security and peace in all nations.”
– Kofi Annan
So long as we have enough people in this country willing to fight for their rights, we’ll be called a democracy.
– Roger Nash Baldwin
It has long been recognized that an essential element in protecting human rights was a widespread knowledge among the population of what their rights are and how they can be defended.

America did not invent human rights. In a very real sense, it is the other way around. Human rights invented America.
– Jimmy Carter
“Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.”
– 14th Dalai Lama
Human Beings, indeed all sentient beings, have the right to pursue happiness and live in peace and freedom.
– 14th Dalai Lama
“Human Rights for everyone is the necessary foundation upon which all of us may build a world where everybody may live in peace and serenity and plenty.”
– Michael Douglas
The UN Declaration of Human Rights laid down what any person might reasonably expect, yet there are remarkably few people who enjoy these rights. With cameras in the hands of activists and meaningful distribution of those images, we will witness what really goes on in this world and hopefully want to change it.”
– Peter Gabriel
Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or sovereign. … You must weep that your own government, at present, seems blind to this truth.
– Mother Teresa
