Have you ever read a feminist quote you really liked and thought to yourself: I wish I could paint this on my walls and look at it all day? You know, those quotes that really resonate with where you've been or where you want to go? The kind of quotes that you consider getting tattooed, or that maybe ten years ago you might have made your perpetual away message on AOL Instant Messenger? You read them and just want to wear them as a coat. You want the words to be a part of your every day life, to inspire you, to motivate you and to enrich you.
Well here's an idea: paint them on your bedroom walls. Yeah, why not? And if you have a super strict landlord, you can always paint over them in a jiffy. Go to your local paint or craft store, get yourself some interior paint, a small paintbrush with flexible bristles, and paint your mission on your wall. It'll be the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you see before you fall asleep at night.
As far as incorporating these words into your life, just shy of tattooing them on the back of your hand, having them spread out across your bedroom walls is really as close to them as you can get. And because we can never get enough of badass quotes about feminism, these are 13 feminist quotes to paint on your bedroom walls, incase you need some inspiration:
