inspirational quotes for girls, from famous women

Last year I was worried about the lack of aspiration and female voice in my classroom. the girls were all too happy to sit there working quietly and for the lads to have their say. Female underachievement in high schools deserved as much focus as focus as the typical ’ white middle ability boys’. I asked my classes to pick their favourite quote from the list and copy it up BIG and BOLD onto the front of their exercise books to remind them to get into the right mindset and the start of each lesson. I hope they become useful for you too. There are quotes from Jesus, Hillary Clinton, Mother Teresa and Maddonna, amongst others.
