10 Quotes By Women To Hang In Your Office
In a recent thread in the feminism subreddit, one user seeks suggestions for quotes by women to put in an office. While it's common practice to decorate an office with quotes by notable people in the company's industry or generally inspirational people, the most-cited quotes can skew male, since men tend to be quoted more in general. Fortunately, though, there are plenty of notable and quotable women with valuable things to say about work and success.
As a society, we tend to listen to men more than women, and the workplace is one area where women often feel this disparity. According to a study from Brigham Young University and Princeton, men's comments tend to take up around 75 percent of work meetings. And according to an analysis by 4th Estate, men are quoted far more often than women in political press coverage, even on women's issues like abortion and birth control.
To combat the tendency to under-quote women and silence women in the workplace, here are a few quotes by women that you can decorate an office with, or just keep in mind to inspire yourself at work.
