Text Quotes
Like everyone, I am formed by my background, and mine was - well, we didn’t have a lot of money. I didn’t live in a cardboard box, but I did live in a place where, at the end of the week, the money was gone.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Our experience shows - and survey after survey reveals - institutions are run better, communities are healthier when women are involved in solving the challenges of our society. Equal representation does not just lead to good democracy: it is democracy.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Someone with 4As at A-level from Eton may look good on paper and come across as very smooth, but push a bit more, and often you get the impression they have learned to pass exams rather than think for themselves.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I think, when I was a young lawyer starting out, I was so determined to prove that I was as good as the men and that I could be given the same opportunities as the men, and it wouldn’t make any difference at all that I was a woman. But actually, looking back on it now, I did do things that I wouldn’t recommend to other women at all.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I feel very strongly about contraception even though I know people say that, as a good Catholic girl, I shouldn’t. But I disagree because I think one of the keys to women’s progression in the 20th century is being able to control their fertility.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I’ve learned when to speak out. You do have to learn when to bide your time and when to speak out, and I don’t always get it right.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) We need to empower all women, both financially and socially, to give them the tools to support themselves and their families. We need to start seeing them as contributors to society, as assets, not as objects of pity or, even worse, objects of shame.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) My own foundation concentrates on women’s economic empowerment on the basis that if women have their own money and are able to support themselves, they can make choices about what happens to them in their lives, about whether they have education, whether they get married, and what happens to their children.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I think I’m one of life’s copers. And picking myself up and dusting myself off and starting all over again is one of my mottoes, actually.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) In my youngest days, the nuns at my grammar school drummed into us that we were in this world to make it a better place - not just for ourselves, but for other people, too. So from the very beginning, I’ve been driven by this idea that we have to make a difference, and it’s one of the reasons I went into law in the first place.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) People say that human rights is a Western construct foisted on others. But that’s not true. Equality, dignity, respect and justice are as much an integral part of the Islamic tradition.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) My advice to organizations I work with is always to be proactive rather than simply reactive when it comes to human rights issues. After all, the important process of improving company policies and practices must be carried out without having to be prompted by a labour strike, factory collapse or other crisis.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) My foundation is absolutely about the women we work with, and they are contributing every day to their families, to their communities, and to the economy of their countries. All we are doing is enabling them to be the best that they can be.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) As a Catholic, I am proud of the social mission of the church and its concerns for the poor and dispossessed, but I still personally would support women priests.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Since I’m not a fashion model, there’s a limit to how nice I can make myself. I don’t regard myself as an ugly person, but I don’t think of myself as someone who would choose to be a model. I’m somebody who might be, I’d like to think, a role model for people who want to become lawyers.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I don’t want to give this impression that I grew up in Liverpool in a cardboard box in abject poverty, but that didn’t mean there weren’t anxieties in my childhood about money.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Britain is still seen as a beacon for decency, for democracy, for vigorous judges upholding the rule of law and, dare I say it, a free press. I respect the press in theory, but when you see some of the things it writes about you, it’s not exactly a happy relationship.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Many of the big decisions over progression, promotion and future career trajectory are taken when people are in their late twenties and thirties, putting women at a huge disadvantage because this is the very time they are most likely to be having a break to have children.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I suppose the first big shift in my life was when, at the age of 8, my father left my mother, leaving her alone with two daughters to bring up. That taught me the importance of women being financially independent. You never know what might happen.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I was so intent as a young lawyer on beating the men at their own game that I didn’t take any real maternity leave with my three younger children. It is only looking back that I realise I wasn’t beating the system but reinforcing it.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I’m an incurable optimist, and I’m a great believer in never looking back. Life is too short, and new challenges are exciting.  (Cherie Blair Quotes) The thing I want to see before I die is women achieving full equality in the world. I’m very passionate about injustice against women and there’s too much of it in the world. In so many parts of the world, women are not regarded as worthy or equal to men. In parts of the world, women are bought and sold  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Understanding how your business affects human rights and using that knowledge to shape appropriate policies and practices is crucial to achieving what should be the goal of all corporations - sustainable growth  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I think it is what you do with your wealth that is important. I don’t believe in accumulating money for money’s sake. It’s one of the reasons I want to do more about helping women  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Women tend to judge other women harshly. We should be kinder to each other, accept that we’re all different and can make different choices. Not go for some kind of stereotypical idea that we’re perfect. Frankly, I’m not perfect  (Cherie Blair Quotes) I am not Superwoman. The reality of my daily life is that I’m juggling a lot of balls in the air trying to be a good wife and mother, trying to be the prime-ministerial consort at home and abroad, barrister and charity worker, and sometimes one of the balls gets dropped  (Cherie Blair Quotes) All the research shows that investing in women is a good investment  (Cherie Blair Quotes) Men are never brave, are they?  (Cherie Blair Quotes) As long as young people feel they have got no hope but to blow themselves up you are never going to make progress  (Cherie Blair Quotes) If every child matters, every child has the right to a good start in life. If every child matters, every child has the right to be included. And that is so important for children with special needs  (Cherie Blair Quotes)
