Feminism quotes
Feminism
Whether we regard the Women's Liberation movement as a serious threat, a passing convulsion, or a fashionable idiocy, it is a movement that mounts an attack on practically everything that women value today and introduces the language and sentiments of political confrontation into the area of personal relationships.

- Stassinopoulos, Arianna
The emancipation of women is practically the greatest egoistic movement of the nineteenth century, and the most intense affirmation of the right of the self that history has yet seen.

- Key, Ellen
Let us rise in the moral power of womanhood; and give utterance to the voice of outraged mercy, and insulted justice, and eternal truth, and mighty love and holy freedom.

- Chapman, Maria Weston
Women's Liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It's the men who are discriminated against. They can't bear children. And no one's likely to do anything about that.

- Meir, Golda
I am blackly bored when they are at large and at work; but somehow I am still more blackly bored when they are shut up in Holloway and we are deprived of them.

- James, Henry
If you do not regard feminism with an uplifting sense of the gloriousness of woman's industrial destiny, or in the way, in short, that it is prescribed, by the rules of the political publicist, that you should, that will be interpreted by your opponents as an attack on woman.

- Lewis, Wyndham
Male supremacy has kept woman down. It has not knocked her out.

- Luce, Clare Boothe
The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.

- Rich, Adrienne
A good part -- and definitely the most fun part -- of being a feminist is about frightening men.

- Burchill, Julie
Just because we're sisters under the skin doesn't mean we've got much in common.

- Carter, Angela
Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.

- Dworkin, Andrea
The embattled gates to equal rights indeed opened up for modern women, but I sometimes think to myself: That is not what I meant by freedom -- it is only social progress.

- Deutsch, Helene
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
When an individual is kept in a situation of inferiority, the fact is that he does become inferior.

- Beauvoir, Simone De
I didn't fight to get women out from behind vacuum cleaners to get them onto the board of Hoover.

- Greer, Germaine
If I were a woman, I would never trust men who say they are feminists. Either they are acting out of guilt, trying to establish credentials, or they think they might be able to pick up more girls. If I were a woman, I would say, go away and have your first period. Then come back and tell me you are a feminist.

- Thomas, David
Liberation is an ever shifting horizon, a total ideology that can never fulfill its promises. It has the therapeutic quality of providing emotionally charged rituals of solidarity in hatred -- it is the amphetamine of its believers.

- Stassinopoulos, Arianna
Men now monopolize the upper levels depriving women of their rightful share of opportunities for incompetence.

- Peter, Laurence J.
Thou art blind to the danger of marrying a woman who feels and acts out the principle of equal rights.

- Grimke, Angelina
I wanted to be the first woman to burn her bra, but it would have taken the fire department four days to put it out.

- Parton, Dolly
