Quotes About Girl Power To Celebrate The New Funkita Line

Funkita Garden Goddess 2015

The feminist movement is not over. We still need to keep fighting the good fight for equality! Funkita is doing their part by releasing awesome swimwear that helps us feel powerful and gorgeous in the pool. We wanted to celebrate their swimwear and feminism in this post.

First off though, let us briefly introduce you to the new girls swimwear and womens swimwear from Funkita, so that you can get a little bit of shopping on before you commence on your journey of empowerment by reading these quotes. The Funkita Olympus Princess Womens One Piece and the Funkita Olympus Princess Girls One Piece both offer an explosion of floral in an impressionist=like pattern. The bright pink thin straps complement the palette of the flowers to create a well put together look.

The other option is the Funkita Garden Goddess Womens One Piece and the Funkita Garden Goddess Girls One Piece. This again is a floral print, but this time there is a wider variety of a palette with warm, spring colours. This is the type of print that you’ll love if spring is your favourite season.

Without further ado, here are the promised quotes:

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.

Rebecca West

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

Desmond Tutu

Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.


You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female”.

Diana Vreeland

“Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties.

Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions…for safety on the streets…for child care, for social welfare, women’s refuges, reforms in the law.

If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist,” I ask, “Why, what’s your problem?”

Dale Spender

You are a human being. You have rights inherent in that reality. You have dignity and worth that exists prior to law.

Lyn Beth Neylon

"Remember no one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Eleanor Roosevelt

As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world."

Virginia Woolf

Tune Into Your Animal Instinct When You Hit The Pool With Funky Trunks and Funkita Swimwear

Funkita Animal Instinct 2015

When you hit the water for laps, it allows you to get out of the mind and into the body. Left to your beastly instincts of the purely physical, you enter into a meditative state as each stroke passes. This zone that swimmers get into is why there are so many people who are lifelong swimmers. The clarity one gets in the pool is addictive.

Tune into the wild wonders of this instinct by choosing a print that reflects the beauty. Funky Trunks and Funkita just released a fun print inspired by animal print- Animal Instinct. The animal print is inspired by none other than the leopard, one of the most agile of kitties being able to run thirty-six miles per hour, leap over twenty feet and jump up to ten feet. With that type of speed, it certainly seems like a good critter to tune into when you are focusing on improving your time.

In addition to having an inspiring pattern, the print features an explosion of exciting colours. Neon strips of colour alternate to create an eye popping combination. Juxtaposed with the black leopard spots, the combination of neon and black makes for an unforgettably energetic aesthetic to inspire you every single time you hop into the pool. This is the type of exciting print that you want when you need a little bit of visual stimulus to get you amped to spend time in the water.

Like all Funkita and Funky Trunks swimwear, the material and cut of the swimwear is designed specifically to match the needs of avid swimmers. The material is chlorine-resistant, so that it won’t fade or wear down with all the hours you spend training the pool. The cuts are specifically made to be comfortable for long hours of wear. Each design is created by swimmers who wanted to create swimwear that they’d be comfortable in. This is the type of swimwear you should get if you want a comfy and stylish fit that is also durable.

The Animal Instinct Design is available in mens swimwear, boys swimwear, womens swimwear and girls swimwear. For the men, you can check it out the Funky Trunks Animal Instinct Mens Trunks and the Funky Trunks Animal Instinct Mens Jammers. For boy the print is available in the Funky Trunks Animal Instinct Boy Trunks. For women, check out the Funkita Animal Instinct Womens One Piece or the Funkita Animal Instinct Womens Sports Bikini. For the little ladies, we have the Funkita Animal Instinct Girls One Piece.

Check Meowt With The New Leopard Swimwear from Funky Trunks and Funkita

Funkita Feline Fever 2015

Are you ready to go on the prowl with loud, neon and leopard patterned swimwear? Then you are going to love the look of the Feline Fever line of swimwear from Funky Trunks and Funkita. The designers of this swimwear must have been feeling particularly frisky and sassy, like any good kitty would, because the pattern is in a particularly bold style. If you are the type of swimmer who likes to make a statement with your swimwear, then you’ll love the look of the Feline Fever Swimwear.

Like many of our offerings from Funky this year, the swimwear print comes in a variety of styles for all ages and gender, so everyone can enjoy the wildness of this unique look. Funky is confident enough in their choice of style, that they often offer prints for everyone. We like that this gives everyone the chance to find the print they like without having to worry whether it is available in their size or not. For men, the Feline Fever swimwear is available in Funky Trunks Feline Fever Mens Jammers. For girls, the style is available in the Funkita Feline Fever Girls Sports Bikini and the Funkita Feline Fever Girls One Piece. For women, the Funkita Feline Fever Womens Sports Bikini, and the Funkita Feline Fever Womens One Piece are the available options.

To top it off, all of these swimwear we have a Funkita Feline Fever Swim Cap that is definitely worth checking out. The swim cap is decorated with strips of neon colour with leopard prints. It matches great with any of the Feline Fever Lion, but you could also pair it with other swimwear that need a little spice added to them. Made with durable silicone, it makes for a snug fit that retains its shape for longer hours of training at the pool.

With the Feline Fever, it is more than just about the look and feel of the swimwear and swim cap, it is about an overall attitude. With the Feline Fever you can be unusual like the leopard, who is one of the few cats that actually likes to swim. Combine the kitty spots with the loud colours, you can bring a dose of attitude every time you hit the water. It is swimwear like this that helps us re-define who we are in and out of the pool.

Not Into The Feline Fever Look?

Stay tuned to our blog to see more great releases from Funky Trunks and Funkita. We are dropping tons of new swimwear at discount prices right here on our website with tons of different styles. It’d be a major accomplishment at this point to not find one piece of swimwear that fits your wants and needs for swimwear on our website; in fact, most of our customers have the problem of choosing just one piece to add to their collection!

  1. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”

– Marcel Proust

  1. “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

– Steve Jobs

  1. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

– Unknown

  1. “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”

– Aldous Huxley

  1. “He who has seen one cathedral ten times has seen something; he who has seen ten cathedrals once has seen but little; and he who has spent half an hour in each of a hundred cathedrals has seen nothing at all.”
    – Sinclair Lewis
  2. “People don’t take trips… trips take people.”
    – John Steinbeck
  3. “We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
    – Pico Iyer
  4. “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has courage to lose sight of the shore.”
    – André Gide
  5. “All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.”
    – Samuel Johnson
  6. “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”

–Ralph Waldo Emerson
