20 Empowering Journal Prompts For Women | Women’s History Month

Happy March and Happy Women’s History Month! This is a special month for women and a time to appreciate the achievements we have made throughout history. I am very grateful that I have been able to receive a college education and have the opportunity to pursue my own happiness and success. It was the amazing women that came before me who paved the way for that.

But we women still have a long way to go! From the fight for equal pay to the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, the issues we face as women are still very relevant. That is why we must remain empowered and hopeful that we can continue making change so that our future generations can one day write blog posts thanking us!

Journaling is a fantastic source of reflection and inspiration, which is why I wanted to share these prompts with you this month. Celebrate Women’s History Month with me by cracking open your journal and enjoying these 20 empowering journal prompts for women!

    Fantastic journal prompts to work through. I think it would be helpful to choose 1-per day so you can spend time reflecting and also not to feel overwhelmed.

    Yes!! I love this! It’s funny – I would have said that the woman I most wanted to meet was Elizabeth Warren, who I actually did get to meet last month! I always wanted the chance to say to her, “Thank you for inspiring women like me to set aside their fear of not being ‘likable’ in order to do what we know is right.” So inspiring. Who would you want to meet?

    What a great post! I do think women need to lift up more women; it’s happening, but it needs to happen more. We have to support EACH OTHER if nothing else.

    I love this! I’ve been pushing myself to journal more this year, and it just hasn’t happened, but I think having prompts like this and being able to write about meaningful things rather than going through the monotonies of my everyday life would be so much better.
