A few feminist quotations

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels. ~Faith Whittlesey

I wish someone would have told me that, just because I’m a girl, I don’t have to get married. ~Marlo Thomas

Women are the only oppressed group in our society that lives in intimate association with their oppressors. ~Evelyn Cunningham

Nobody will ever win the Battle of the Sexes. There’s just too much fraternizing with the enemy. ~Henry Kissinger

The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it. ~Roseanne Barr

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. ~Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman. ~Anaïs Nin

(From the internet: ‘Quotations: Feminism.’ I was once viewed as a feminist because I had, as national president, introduced women into Australian Rostrum (an organisation akin to Toastmasters of the USA). However, when I was interviewed as a candidate for a senior position in the Prime Minister’s Department in Australia involving women’s affairs, I was viewed by some feminists of the other gender as ‘not one of us.’)
