Whilst looking into Feminism I thought it might be useful to research into quotes to see if it would give me an insight on the different opinions which people may have concerning this subject. Here are just a few that tickled my fancy!
“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”
– Jane Austen
“Woman’s degradation is in mans idea of his sexual rights. Our religion, laws, customs, are all founded on the belief that woman was made for man.”
― Elizabeth Cady Stanton
“Women who love themselves are threatening; but men who love real women, more so.”
― Naomi Wolf
“Feminism has never been about getting a job for one woman. It’s about making life more fair for women everywhere. It’s not about a piece of the existing pie; there are too many of us for that. It’s about baking a new pie.”
― Gloria Steinem
“If any female feels she need anything beyond herself to legitimate and validate her existence, she is already giving away her power to be self-defining, her agency.”
― Bell Hooks
I hope these quotes left you thinking!
