It was just International Women’s Day so this time around our series of E. Jean Carroll quotes are on being a strong, active, do-good woman for OURSELVES and other women. We picture you reading these and nodding, laughing, maybe even a few Amen!’s thrown out there! So Pin em, tweet em, print em out… Auntie E can inspire the fiery woman in all of us. 😉

For those of you who didn’t grow up reading E. Jean Carroll’s advice column “Ask E. Jean” in ELLE magazine (running since 1993!.. Seriously the best part of the magazine) then you must catch up with this woman and read her articles. Or at the very least, follow her on twitter. Her one liners are incredible. She is incredible! Her advice is gold. (And her dating app GAME “Damn Love” is hilarious!)

In a nutshell: E. Jean Carroll is the smart, loyal, fabulous, tell-it-like-it-is universal Auntie that sets our asses straight and then bear hugs us after. Girlfriend has been cheering for us and answering our life questions a long time now. She celebrates womanhood. She wants the best for everyone. She calls us out and we love her for it. Plus, she’s damn funny. We admire her so much.


E. Jean Carroll Quotes

TRUTH. Always come back better than before.

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

Don’t be idle. Don’t wait for shit to happen for you. PRO-ACTIVE… every day!

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

How else are you going to find out? PUSH yo’self woman.

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

And that means being entirely woman… entirely human. Emotions are dealt with differently for everyone- but need to be felt in order to move on. There is no right amount of time it takes or way to deal with whatever happened. You know best.

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

And always, always be a good friend. Friendship is GOLDEN.

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

NEVER. Their enemy is not your friend. (If you’re being a good friend.)

E. Jean Carroll Quotes

Thanks for the wise words, Auntie E! We love you!
