about women’s rights

“If you’re not angry, then you haven’t been paying attention”.

“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 1911-1917

“No woman can call herself free who does not control her own body.” Margaret Sanger

“It’s not that women want men to give us our rights. We already have them. We want men to stop taking them away.”

“It was during the session with Hollaback that my eyes truly opened. The girls in my class started speaking about their past experiences with street harassment and the stories just didn’t stop. Every time one girl was finished recalling some time some guy did something to her on the street it seemed that another girl would just step in and start telling her story.” Ian, high school senior.

about misogyny and sexism

“I deny that any one knows or can know, the nature of the two sexes, as long as they have only been seen in their present relation to one another. Until conditions of equality exist, no one can possibly assess the natural differences between women and men, distorted as they have been. What is natural to the two sexes can only be found out by allowing both to develop and use their faculties freely.” John Stuart Mill, 1869
