Being a woman isn’t easy. Girl, you can say that again.

The constant pressure to be flawless while balancing motherhood, career and relationships is overwhelming, which is why encouraging sisterhood among women is a responsibility we all must own.

Nowhere are women torn down quite as much as they are in the public eye. Every day, the media is saturated with stories of women fighting with one another, beefing over a man, a job or a catty comment.

So, in an industry that promotes rivalry among women, we wanted to share the amazing stories of women uplifting one another. These celeb ladies have found encouragement and mentorship through their peers’ inspirational words.

Legends like the late Maya Angelou left behind a legacy of powerful mantras we admire like our great grandmother’s vintage hand-me-downs.

Check out their inspiring wisdom in the gallery below and share it with the women in your life.
