Feminism

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
Feminism Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Feminism

1.
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

2.
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

3.
As a result of the feminist revolution, feminine becomes an abusive epithet.
Lewis, Wyndham

4.
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

5.
Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women's issues.
Bunch, Charlotte

6.
There must be a world revolution which puts an end to all materialistic conditions hindering woman from performing her natural role in life and driving her to carry out man's duties in order to be equal in rights.
Qaddafi, Colonel Muhammar

7.
A good part -- and definitely the most fun part -- of being a feminist is about frightening men.
Burchill, Julie

8.
The most important thing women have to do is to stir up the zeal of women themselves.
Mill, John Stuart

9.
Ah, I fancy it is just the same with most of what you call your emancipation. You have read yourself into a number of new ideas and opinions. You have got a sort of smattering of recent discoveries in various fields -- discoveries that seem to overthrow certain principles which have hitherto been held impregnable and unassailable. But all this has only been a matter of intellect, Miss West -- superficial acquisition. It has not passed into your blood.
Ibsen, Henrik

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Feminism is a political mistake. Feminism is a mistake made by women's intellect, a mistake which her instinct will recognize.
Saint-Point, Valentine De

13.
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

14.
The history of men's opposition to women's emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.
Woolf, Virginia

15.
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

16.
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.

17.
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

18.
I didn't fight to get women out from behind vacuum cleaners to get them onto the board of Hoover.
Greer, Germaine

19.
I am a staunch feminist, in spite of all women's magazines.
Kocher, Gerhard

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

21.
I owe nothing to Women's Lib.
Thatcher, Margaret

22.
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

23.
When an individual is kept in a situation of inferiority, the fact is that he does become inferior.
Beauvoir, Simone De

24.
Thou art blind to the danger of marrying a woman who feels and acts out the principle of equal rights.
Grimke, Angelina

25.
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

26.
Feminism is doomed to failure because it is based on an attempt to repeal and restructure human nature.
Schlafly, Phyllis

27.
There has come into existence, chiefly in America, a breed of men who claim to be feminists. They imagine that they have understood what women want and that they are capable of giving it to them. They help with the dishes at home and make their own coffee in the office, basking the while in the refulgent consciousness of virtue. Such men are apt to think of the true male feminists as utterly chauvinistic.
Greer, Germaine

28.
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

29.
Men now monopolize the upper levels depriving women of their rightful share of opportunities for incompetence.
Peter, Laurence J.

30.
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

31.
Everything in woman hath a solution. It is called pregnancy.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

32.
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

33.
Women's liberation is the liberation of the feminine in the man and the masculine in the woman.
Kent, Sister Corita

34.
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

35.
The sight of women talking together has always made men uneasy; nowadays it means rank subversion.
Greer, Germaine

36.
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

37.
The people I'm furious with are the Women's Liberationists. They keep getting up on soapboxes and proclaiming women are brighter than men. That's true, but it should be kept quiet or it ruins the whole racket.
Loos, Anita

38.
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

39.
Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior.
Socrates

40.
Male supremacy has kept woman down. It has not knocked her out.
Luce, Clare Boothe

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
The connections between and among women are the most feared, the most problematic, and the most potentially transforming force on the planet.
Rich, Adrienne

46.
If the abstract rights of man will bear discussion and explanation, those of women, by a parity of reasoning, will not shrink from the same test: though a different opinion prevails in this country.
Wollstonecraft, Mary

47.
Feminism was recognized by the average man as a conflict in which it was impossible for a man, as a chivalrous gentleman, as a respecter of the rights of little nations (like little Belgium), as a highly evolved citizen of a highly civilized community, to refuse the claim of this better half to self-determination.
Lewis, Wyndham

48.
Women get more unhappy the more they try to liberate themselves.
Bardot, Brigitte

49.
Just because we're sisters under the skin doesn't mean we've got much in common.
Carter, Angela
