Every single moment at the Women's Conference inspired me, and all the sensational speeches left me feeling energized. Here are a few more of my favorite quotes from the memorable day. Some are moving, and others are funny... But they all demonstrate what the day is really about: Women, unity, and empowerment.

"To be empowered means to be given authority. This conference doesn't need to give it to us. I've learned here that we already have it.

This event isn't about empowerment it's about recognizing and celebrating how powerful each of us are in our own right, and inspiring us to use that power to do something important." – Anne Sweeney
