Feminism quotes
Feminism
1.

The fundamental impulse of the movement is neither masturbatory nor concretely lesbian -- although it of course offers warm house to both these possibilities; it is an impulse to maidenhood -- to that condition in which a woman might pretend to a false fear or loathing of the penis in order to escape from any responsibility for the pleasure and well-being of the man who possesses it.

- Decter, Midge
2.

The modern woman is the curse of the universe. A disaster, that's what. She thinks that before her arrival on the scene no woman ever did anything worthwhile before, no woman was ever liberated until her time, no woman really ever amounted to anything.

- Johns, Adela Rogers St.
3.

Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.

- Goldman, Emma
4.

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

- Rich, Adrienne
5.

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.

- Cheris Kramarae
6.

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

- Burchill, Julie
7.

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
8.

The emancipation of today displays itself mainly in cigarettes and shorts. There is even a reaction from the ideal of an intellectual and emancipated womanhood, for which the pioneers toiled and suffered, to be seen in painted lips and nails, and the return of trailing skirts and other absurdities of dress which betoken the slave-woman's intelligent companionship.

- Pankhurst, Sylvia
9.

Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women's issues.

- Bunch, Charlotte
10.

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
11.

The most important thing women have to do is to stir up the zeal of women themselves.

- Mill, John Stuart
12.

I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.

- Jordan, June
13.

The sadness of the women's movement is that they don't allow the necessity of love. See, I don't personally trust any revolution where love is not allowed.

- Angelou, Maya
14.

One of the reasons for the failure of feminism to dislodge deeply held perceptions of male and female behavior was its insistence that women were victims, and men powerful patriarchs, which made a travesty of ordinary people's experience of the mutual interdependence of men and women.

- Coward, Rosalind
15.

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

- Beauvoir, Simone De
16.

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
17.

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
18.

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

- Peter, Laurence J.
19.

Women's liberation, if it abolishes the patriarchal family, will abolish a necessary substructure of the authoritarian state, and once that withers away Marx will have come true willy-nilly, so let's get on with it.

- Greer, Germaine
20.

Feminism is hated because women are hated. Anti-feminism is a direct expression of misogyny; it is the political defense of women hating.

- Dworkin, Andrea
