Amy Schumer's 2014 Speech About Women

Read, Share, Repeat: Amy Schumer's Kick-Ass Speech

At last year's Gloria Awards and Gala, comedian Amy Schumer basically killed it with her funny, honest, and empowering speech on her sex life, being a confident woman, and body-image issues. You'll want to read it in its entirety, but her closing lines were especially powerful:

"I am a woman with thoughts and questions and sh*t to say. I say if I'm beautiful. I say if I'm strong. You will not determine my story — I will. I will speak and share and f*ck and love, and I will never apologize to the frightened millions who resent that they never had it in them to do it. I stand here and I am amazing, for you. Not because of you. I am not who I sleep with. I am not my weight. I am not my mother. I am myself. And I am all of you, and I thank you."

Thanks for being awesome, Amy! Share her quote with the women (and men) you know:
