Feminism quotes
Feminism
The freedom that women were supposed to have found in the Sixties largely boiled down to easy contraception and abortion; things to make life easier for men, in fact.

- Burchill, Julie
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
I owe nothing to Women's Lib.

- Thatcher, Margaret
Women get more unhappy the more they try to liberate themselves.

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

- Grimke, Angelina
Everything in woman hath a solution. It is called pregnancy.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.

- Cheris Kramarae
The sight of women talking together has always made men uneasy; nowadays it means rank subversion.

- 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
Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. Some of us have ventured out nevertheless, and so far we have not fallen off. It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.

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

- Rich, Adrienne
I hate discussions of feminism that end up with who does the dishes, she said. So do I. But at the end, there are always the damned dishes.

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

- Greer, Germaine
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
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 most important thing women have to do is to stir up the zeal of women themselves.

- Mill, John Stuart
