In The Pursuit of Happiness: Marilyn Monroe on women

I've always admired Marilyn Monroe -- everything from her classic fashion sense to the way she carried herself. And when it came to women, she knew exactly what was up...

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
YES, Marilyn! You've got it right. Do you have a favorite Marilyn quote, friends?

P.S. Zooey Deschanel on feminism and Susan Sarandon on aging. Two thumbs up for inspiring women! :)

  1. This is one of the many Marilyn Monroe misquotes (I'm not sure why so many quotes get incorrectly attributed to her!). The quote reportedly came from Timothy Leary but there seems to be some dispute about that particular fact. Regardless, a great sentiment. :)

  2. I love the quote where she says that whatever size you are you are not ugly , it's society that's ugly...

  3. What a fabulous strong female icon! Great quote.. Thanks for taking the time to drop by :) Happy Friday!

  5. Great quote. One thing that I admire about her is that she embraced her feminine side & used it as a strength instead of being ashamed about it.
