Feminist quotes by Juanda Brahma Metta
#1. Communist until you get rich. Feminist until you get married. Atheist until the airplane starts falling. #Quote by Juanda Brahma Metta
Feminist quotes by Fay Weldon
#2. Men are irrelevant. Women are happy or unhappy, fulfilled or unfulfilled, and it has nothing to do with men. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Feminist quotes by Noam Chomsky
#3. So understood, anarchism is the inheritor of the classical liberal ideas that emerged from the Enlightenment. It is part of a broader range of libertarian socialist thought and action that ranges from the left anti-Bolshevik Marxism of Anton Pannekoek, Karl Korsch, Paul Mattick, and others, to the anarcho-syndicalism that crucially includes the practical achievements of revolutionary Spain in 1936, reaching further to worker-owned enterprises spreading today in the Rust Belt of the United States, in northern Mexico, in Egypt, and in many other countries, most extensively in the Basque country in Spain, also encompassing the many cooperative movements around the world and a good part of feminist and civil and human rights initiatives. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Feminist quotes by Sady Doyle
#4. Consider this book, then, a feminist anatomy of the trainwreck. It's an effort to figure out who she is: why she's making us so angry; what, in general, she hath done to offend us. These are questions of more immediate and personal relevance than you may think: When women look hard enough at the trainwreck, we almost invariably end up looking at ourselves. #Quote by Sady Doyle
Feminist quotes by Carina Chocano
#5. We appeared to be done with the marriage plot. ('What's the alternative to the marriage plot?' She said: ' The alternative is adventure.') My generation (I thought) was the first post-feminist generation. The first to be allowed to see love in terms of adventure and quest, not salvation and redemption. #Quote by Carina Chocano
Feminist quotes by Caroline George
#6. I am strong and human with a mouth that works like a man's and a more intelligible brain, and I demand to be heard. #Quote by Caroline George
Feminist quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#7. This diary will tell the real life story of my great-grandmother Yasutani Jiko. She was a nun and a novelist and New Woman7 of the Taisho era.8 She was also an anarchist and a feminist who had plenty of lovers, both males and females, but she was never kinky or nasty. And even though I may end up mentioning some of her love affairs, everything I write will be historically true and empowering to women, and not a lot of foolish geisha crap. So if kinky nasty things are your pleasure, please close this book and give it to your wife or co-worker and save yourself a lot of time and trouble. 4. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Feminist quotes by Alice Walker
#8. Womanist is to feminist as purple is to lavender. #Quote by Alice Walker
Feminist quotes by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
#9. I told my kids I just want three words on my tombstone, if I have one. I'll probably be cremated. One is "woman." I'm very comfortable in that role. I've loved being a woman, I've loved being a mother, I've loved being a grandmother. I want three words: Woman, Atheist, Anarchist. That's me. #Quote by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
Feminist quotes by Sarah Bessey
#10. One needn't identify as a feminist to participate in the redemptive movement of God for women in the world, The gospel is more than enough. Of course it is! But as long as I know how important maternal health is to Haiti's future, and as long as I know that women are being abused and raped, as long as I know girls are being denied life itself through selective abortion, abandonment, and abuse, as long as brave little girls in Afghanistan are attacked with acid for the crime of going to school, and until being a Christian is synonymous with doing something about these things, you can also call me a feminist. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Feminist quotes by Emily Matchar
#11. American culture at large has failed working mothers. #Quote by Emily Matchar
Feminist quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#12. I felt like going out on the road and mixing it with music - which is something young people are always really interested in - would be a good way to proselytize. It was like feminist evangelism. #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
Feminist quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#13. My message behind this album was finding the beauty in imperfection. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Feminist quotes by Michael Hardt
#14. Through luminous and erudite readings of the texts, Hasana Sharp shows us how profound and radical is Spinoza's conception of nature and his claim that humans always remain part of nature, acting solely according to the same rules. She demonstrates the political consequences of adopting this perspective through a provocative intervention in contemporary feminist theory, while along the way opening promising avenues for future work in a variety of other fields, such as animal studies and ecology. This is a challenging and important book. #Quote by Michael Hardt
Feminist quotes by Hilary Mantel
#15. But I had to think to myself that this was normal, because that was the attitude. I was 19 when I went to see my doctor and I was told it was all in the mind.
[Author Hilary Mantel on being told her endometriosis was imagined pain, From Oct 2009 Daily Mail interview] #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Feminist quotes by Clifford Geertz
#16. I'm writing a review of three books on feminism and science, and it's about social constructionism. So I would say I'm a social constructionist, whatever that means. #Quote by Clifford Geertz
Feminist quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#17. Most mother-women give up whatever ghost of a unique and human self they may have when they 'marry' and raise children. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Feminist quotes by Kat Banyard
#18. ...so individuals have their flesh cut and pulled, surgery companies proclaim it as an empowering choice, and the stifling cultural ideals about women's appearance are left unscathed #Quote by Kat Banyard
Feminist quotes by Laura Schlessinger
#19. The current feminist agenda mostly accuses men or society in general, thereby ignoring the pivotal role played by women themselves in their life predicaments. #Quote by Laura Schlessinger
Feminist quotes by Aysha Taryam
#20. Our Arab mothers and sisters are suffering from injustices like domestic violence, sexual harassment, child marriages and honour killings, some are still fighting for their right to drive or travel without male custody therefore our powerful Arab media was not only expected to broadcast this particular one of a kind Women's march it should have held panels to dissect the issues being brought forth in order for the Arab world to better understand that gender equality is not an idea that one believes in, it is a planned movement that requires an enormous effort on the part of both men and women to reach. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Feminist quotes by Betty Smith
#21. They were all slender, frail creatures with wondering Wes and soft fluttery voices. But they were all made out of thin invisible steel. #Quote by Betty Smith
Feminist quotes by Fay Weldon
#22. When today's young woman says she isn't a feminist what she means is she isn't a lesbian and she doesn't hate men, she likes to wear make-up and she enjoys a laugh. In which she is no different from many an early feminist. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Feminist quotes by Isabel Allende
#23. My mother didn't want me to be a feminist, a radical, political person, because she was scared. She wanted me to be protected and safe, but my life never was. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#24. I disavowed feminism because I had no rational understanding of the movement. I was called a feminist, and what I heard was, „You are an angry, sex-hating, man-hating victim lady person." This caricature is how feminists have been warped by people who fear feminism most, the same people who have the most to lose when feminism succeeds. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Camille Paglia
#25. I consider myself 100 percent a feminist, at odds with the feminist establishment in America. For me the great mission of feminism is to seek the full political and legal equality of women with men. However, I disagree with many of my fellow feminists as an equal opportunity feminist, who believes that feminism should only be interested in equal rights before the law. I utterly oppose special protection for women where I think that a lot of the feminist establishment has drifted in the last 20 years. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Feminist quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#26. Even though I had a good income from my lectures, no one would give me a loan. The insanity almost drove me to sympathize with the feminist movement. #Quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Feminist quotes by John F. MacArthur Jr.
#27. To acknowledge that there are such fundamental differences between the genders, and that men an women were designed for different roles, many not correspond with modern feminist sensibilities, but this is after all, what God's own Word says. God created men and women differently with a purpose, and His plan for them reflects their differences. Scripture is clear in teaching that wives should be subject to the authority of their husbands in marriage and that women are to be under the authority and instruction of men in the church. #Quote by John F. MacArthur Jr.
Feminist quotes by Gabby Rivera
#28. It's about women of color owning their own space and their voices being treated with dignity and respect. It's about women of color not having to shout over voices to be heard. We are the dominant force almost all the time. White women are the stars of all the movies. White women are the lead speakers in feminist debates, and it's little white girls that send the nation into a frenzy when they've been kidnapped. ...check your privilege. We're the ones that need to give women of color space for their voices. #Quote by Gabby Rivera
Feminist quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#29. Well, I think I'm a feminist, just by the virtue of the fact that I believe in equal rights for everyone. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Feminist quotes by Mary Daly
#30. Hags live. Women traveling into feminist time/space are creating Hag-ocracy, the place we govern. To govern is to steer, to pilot. #Quote by Mary Daly
Feminist quotes by Gloria Allred
#31. Do feminists have a sense of humor? Yes. #Quote by Gloria Allred
Feminist quotes by Ingrid Michaelson
#32. When I said I was born a feminist, I was born thinking woman are equal to men, if not stronger than men. That's the way I always was. #Quote by Ingrid Michaelson
Feminist quotes by Lisa Graham McMinn
#33. To limit the ways our daughters can legitimately function as stewards/rulers further devalues the image of God in them and continues the imbalance and distortion of God's plan. #Quote by Lisa Graham McMinn
Feminist quotes by Linda Gordon
#34. The nuclear family must be destroyed ... Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process. #Quote by Linda Gordon
Feminist quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#35. Gansey was right. You really can be a raging feminist. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Feminist quotes by Kami Garcia
#36. My mom had told me the stories about the first few years she'd lived here. The way she told it, she was such a criminal even the most God-fearing church ladies got bored of reporting on her; she did the marketing on Sunday, dropped by any church she liked or none at all, was a feminist (which Mrs. Asher sometimes confused with communist), a Democrat (which Mrs. Lincoln pointed out practically had "demon" in the word itself), and worst of all, a vegetarian (which ruled out any dinner invitations from Mrs. Snow). Beyond that, beyond not being a member of the right church or the DAR or the National Rifle Association, was the fact that my mom was an outsider. #Quote by Kami Garcia
Feminist quotes by Ariel Levy
#37. Instead of trying to reform other people's - or her own - perception of feminist, the FCP likes to position herself as something outside the normal bounds of womanhood. #Quote by Ariel Levy
Feminist quotes by Ralph Nader
#38. Young wives are the leading asset of corporate power. They want the suburbs, a house, a settled life, and respectability. They want society to see that they have exchanged themselves for something of value. #Quote by Ralph Nader
Feminist quotes by Harold Bloom
#39. School of Resentment is a term coined by critic Harold Bloom to describe related schools of literary criticism which have gained prominence in academia since the 1970s and which Bloom contends are preoccupied with political and social activism at the expense of aesthetic values.[1]
Broadly, Bloom terms "Schools of Resentment" approaches associated with Marxist critical theory, including African American studies, Marxist literary criticism, New Historicist criticism, feminist criticism, and poststructuralism - specifically as promoted by Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault. The School of Resentment is usually defined as all scholars who wish to enlarge the Western canon by adding to it more works by authors from minority groups without regard to aesthetic merit and/or influence over time, or those who argue that some works commonly thought canonical promote sexist, racist or otherwise biased values and should therefore be removed from the canon. Bloom contends that the School of Resentment threatens the nature of the canon itself and may lead to its eventual demise. Philosopher Richard Rorty[2] agreed that Bloom is at least partly accurate in describing the School of Resentment, writing that those identified by Bloom do in fact routinely use "subversive, oppositional discourse" to attack the canon specifically and Western culture in general. #Quote by Harold Bloom
Feminist quotes by Emma Watson
#40. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams, because they didn't want to appear muscle-y, when at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings, I decided that I was a feminist. #Quote by Emma Watson
Feminist quotes by Robert Bork
#41. Radical feminism is the most destructive and fanatical movement to come down to us from the Sixties. This is a revolutionary, not a reformist, movement, and it is meeting with considerable success. Totalitarian in spirit, it is deeply antagonistic to traditional Western culture and proposes the complete restructuring of society, morality, and human nature. #Quote by Robert Bork
Feminist quotes by Marie Calloway
#42. I feel like people think of me as someone who really believes in a "sex as empowerment" philosophy, like Sasha Grey or something, when actually I feel like I'm much more what a lot of liberal feminists would call "sex negative" than most women I know. #Quote by Marie Calloway
Feminist quotes by Mary Daly
#43. I know that I will be punished just as much for being an itty-bitty feminist as for going the whole way. And so I go the whole way. #Quote by Mary Daly
Feminist quotes by Rebecca West
#44. 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. #Quote by Rebecca West
Feminist quotes by Lorde
#45. I'd refer to myself as a feminist. I don't think my music is overtly rooted in feminism. I'm a teenager, and 95 percent of my friends are boys, and that's just the way I've always been. #Quote by Lorde
Feminist quotes by Sheila Jeffreys
#46. Both the veil and makeup are often seen as voluntary behaviours by women, taken up by choice and to express agency. But in both cases there is considerable evidence of the pressures arising from male dominance that cause the behaviours. For instance, the historian of commerce Kathy Peiss suggests that the beauty products industry took off in the USA in the 1920s/1930s because this was a time when women were entering the public world of offices and other workplaces (Peiss, 1998). She sees women as having made themselves up as a sign of their new freedom. But there is another explanation. Feminist commentators on the readoption of the veil by women in Muslim countries in the late twentieth century have suggested that women feel safer and freer to engage in occupations and movement in the public world through covering up (Abu-Odeh, 1995). It could be that the wearing of makeup signifies that women have no automatic right to venture out in public in the west on equal grounds with men. Makeup, like the veil, ensures that they are masked and not having the effrontery to show themselves as the real and equal citizens that they should be in theory. Makeup and the veil may both reveal women's lack of entitlement. #Quote by Sheila Jeffreys
Feminist quotes by Irena Klepfisz
#47. Most Jewish feminists and gays that I know remain angry and frustrated by Jewish progressives. Deeply committed to progressive causes, frequently in the vanguard of political action, Jewish feminist and gays find ourselves fighting for the rights of others without the secure knowledge that others will fight for us. #Quote by Irena Klepfisz
Feminist quotes by Elizabeth Joan Smith
#48. It's just so hard sometimes to work out where people stand on these things. I mean, isn't the Pope a feminist? #Quote by Elizabeth Joan Smith
Feminist quotes by Jewel Spears Brooker
#49. The period of general neglect of Eliot's poetry was one in which a revolution was occurring in the theory of interpretation. Existentialist, phenomenologist, structuralist, psychoanalytic, feminist, and poststructuralist theories appeared and stimulated dazzling conversations about how texts mean. Bloom, Miller, Poulet, Gadamer, Foucault, Lacan, Kristeva, and Derrida are just a few of the critics who have contributed to these conversations. These studies have enormous value for critics interested in Eliot. In the first place, they have popularized insights about language which are central in Eliot poetry from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" to Four Quartets. Anyone who doubts this should read Derrida "Structure, Sign, and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences" and follow up with a reading of part 5 of each of Four Quartets. In the second place, the studies in theory have created an audience that will be able to appreciate Eliot's dissertation and early philosophical work, an audience unthinkable a generation ago. #Quote by Jewel Spears Brooker
Feminist quotes by Aysha Taryam
#50. The Women's March had restored my faith as I am sure it has introduced the young generation to the new wave of feminism. A feminist movement that was made up of both sexes and all ages and creeds, one that did away with the arguments and stood arm in arm for a greater cause, a cause which the Arab media did not wish to project. #Quote by Aysha Taryam
Feminist quotes by Nora Ephron
#51. You can't call yourself a feminist if you don't believe in the right to abortion. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Feminist quotes by Gemma Arterton
#52. I don't know why it's still a taboo to be a feminist. #Quote by Gemma Arterton
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#53. I love romantic comedies. I know how terrible they are, but I love them! And I don't think that makes me less of a feminist. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#54. I am a bad feminist because I never want to be placed on a Feminist Pedestal. People who are placed on pedestals are expected to pose, perfectly. Then they get knocked off when they fuck it up. I regularly fuck it up. Consider me already knocked off. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Elisa Albert
#55. For as long as wimmin have had the temerity to experience feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, and deep resentment, patriarchal society has denied them these feelings, and, in fact, punished them heartily for feeling anything at all. #Quote by Elisa Albert
Feminist quotes by Catharine A. MacKinnon
#56. Men who are in prison for rape think it's the dumbest thing that ever happened... it's isn't just a miscarriage of justice; they were put in jail for something very little different from what most men do most of the time and call it sex. The only difference is they got caught. That view is nonremorseful and not rehabilitative. It may also be true. It seems to me that we have here a convergence between the rapists's view of what he has done and the victim's perspective on what was done to her. That is, for both, their ordinary experiences of heterosexual intercourse and the act of rape have something in common. Now this gets us into immense trouble, because that's exactly how judges and juries see it who refuse to convict men accused of rape. A rape victim has to prove that it was not intercourse. She has to show that there was force and that she resisted, because if there was sex, consent is inferred. Finders of fact look for "more force than usual during the preliminaries". Rape is defined by distinction from intercourse - not nonviolence, intercourse. They ask, does this event look more like fucking or like rape? But what is their standard for sex, and is this question asked from the women's point of view? The level of force is not adjudicated at her point of violation; it is adjudicated at the standard for the normal level of force. Who sets this standard? #Quote by Catharine A. MacKinnon
Feminist quotes by C.J. Redwine
#57. I never thought it was fair that anatomy decided what my brain was fit for. #Quote by C.J. Redwine
Feminist quotes by Megan Mayhew Bergman
#58. Nothing has topped the way men shake her hand and look her in the eye, what it's like to call a man chickenshit to his face and get away with it, to mean it, to feel free and dominant and in control of your life. #Quote by Megan Mayhew Bergman
Feminist quotes by Krista Burton
#59. If reconciling your feminist values with your sexual preferences is something you're struggling with, don't panic. But try to believe what I'm about to tell you, because it's true: It's healthy to want and seek pleasure. It's generous and kind to want to make your sexual partner(s) feel good. You should do stuff with someone because you want to, not because they expect or feel entitled to it, and the same should be true for them. Whatever you do during sexytimes is between you and your partner - not you, your partner, and feminism, and not you, your partner, and the Gender Roles Police Force. Everything doesn't always have to be equal - unless you want it to be. The only things that matter are that everyone's having fun, and everyone's feeling respected by and respectful of their partners the whole time you're doing whatever it is that you get up to. Because in the end, that's all that sex is: Two people who want to have sex, alone in a room. No judgy voices allowed. #Quote by Krista Burton
Feminist quotes by Myriam Gurba
#60. We act mean to defend ourselves from boredom and from those who would chop off our breasts. We act mean to defend our clubs and institutions. We act mean because we like to laugh. Being mean to boys is fun and a second-wave feminist duty. Being rude to men who deserve it is a holy mission. Sisterhood is powerful, but being a bitch is more exhilarating. Being a bitch is spectacular. #Quote by Myriam Gurba
Feminist quotes by Molly Ivins
#61. I used to go on college campuses 25 years ago and announce I was a feminist, and people thought it meant I believed in free love and was available for a quick hop in the sack ... Now I go on college campuses and say I'm a feminist, and half of them think it means I'm a lesbian. How'd we get from there to here without passing "Go"? #Quote by Molly Ivins
Feminist quotes by Vandana Shiva
#62. My mother was a tremendous woman. I was just cleaning up old trunks and I found a book with her notes written during the war years, in the 1940s. She was studying in Lahore, which became Pakistan. She was writing about how women alone could bring peace to the world, that the men with all their greed and egos were creating all these tensions and violence. I always knew she was a feminist, ahead of her time. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Feminist quotes by Wilbur Smith
#63. I'm a feminist. The women in my books in recent years have been powerful characters and I love to see a woman with a cute bottom walking past. #Quote by Wilbur Smith
Feminist quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#64. Know that you matter, your thoughts and feelings matter, your sexual needs and wants matter, your sexual boundaries and sexual health matter. -That is the definition of sexual empowerment. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Feminist quotes by Lucy H. Pearce
#65. If we are to be women in power, then it must be power on very different terms. we have to find a new source of energy. New structures of power. Ones that don't deplete us or our environment. We need to run our lives on sustainable energy. #Quote by Lucy H. Pearce
Feminist quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#66. Encountering gender apartheid and waged slavery shook me to my roots more than half a century ago in Afghanistan. Oh, the women of Afghanistan, the women of the Muslim world. I was no feminist
but now, thinking back, I see how much I learned there, how clearly their condition taught me to see gender discrimination anywhere and, above all, taught me to see how cruel oppressed women could be to each other. They taught me about women everywhere. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Feminist quotes by Elmar Hussein
#67. Anti-feminism is not sexism. It does not defend the various types of physical, sexual and moral violence against women in the family and society. It does not claim to violate the natural rights of women, which is expressed in the constitution and the legal system as a whole. Instead, anti-feminism supports the innate biological differences among men and women, and as a final result it is directed against gender-blindness -- a unisex trend that artificially increases due to feminism in modern global civilization. To protect the natural rights of women, you don't need to be a feminist, you have to be a humanist who has devoted himself or herself to protecting all humans. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Feminist quotes by Donatella Versace
#68. Feminism is dead in the world. It comes from another time. I'm a feminist. I want to fight, but I don't see many people with this desire to fight for something. Women don't help each other, especially in fashion. #Quote by Donatella Versace
Feminist quotes by Kirsty Gallacher
#69. I'm not a feminist at all. #Quote by Kirsty Gallacher
Feminist quotes by Jennifer Lawrence
#70. I can't even describe to anybody what it feels like to have my naked body shot across the world like a news flash against my will. It just makes me feel like a piece of meat that's being passed around for profit. #Quote by Jennifer Lawrence
Feminist quotes by Betty Friedan
#71. The feminine mystique has succeeded in burying millions of American women alive. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Feminist quotes by Loriliai Biernacki
#72. I would suggest that especially in the differential of images that arise, in the inflections that we find within the representations of women we may also recover a subjectivity for women. For this reason also I am specifically interested in bringing to light other models for women's roles, models that upset business as usual and offer a greater diversity of possibilities for the easy we can imagine women. #Quote by Loriliai Biernacki
Feminist quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#73. Sometimes, being a feminist artist, there are times where I'm in a position where I just want to feel like I'm saying all the right things politically, or I feel like I have to mention my own project over other people's projects. But I don't do that anymore. I just want to be off the cuff and honest. #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
Feminist quotes by Angie Manfredi
#74. Feminism helped me understand that my body was not up for public debate and discussion. Feminism reminds us that people have inherent worth for who they are, not how they look. #Quote by Angie Manfredi
Feminist quotes by Sally Hawkins
#75. You can't be a woman and not be a feminist, I don't think. If you care about the world and the world you exist in and your rights. #Quote by Sally Hawkins
Feminist quotes by Rishiraj Sen
#76. Somewhere between 'Princess', 'Bitch' and 'Goddess', lies the life of all women. #Quote by Rishiraj Sen
Feminist quotes by Camille Paglia
#77. Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Feminist quotes by Clifford Geertz
#78. Anthropology in general has always been fairly hospitable to female scholars, and even to feminist scholars. #Quote by Clifford Geertz
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#79. Feminism, as of late, has suffered from a certain guilt by association because we conflate feminism with women who advocate feminism as part of their personal brand. When these figureheads say what you want to hear, we put them up on the Feminist Pedestal, and when they do something we don't like, we knock them right off and then say there's something wrong with feminism because our feminist leaders have failed us. We forget the difference between feminism and Professional Feminists. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#80. Any woman whose I.Q. hovers above her body temperature must be a feminist. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Feminist quotes by Caitlin Moran
#81. It's amazing to me that it's still considered a notable, commendable trait –'Oh, she's a well-known feminist' –in a woman, or a girl, or a man, or a boy. That that is the unusual thing. Really, it should be the reverse. Rather than what seems like a minority having to spend time, energy, brain and heart explaining why they're 'into' equality, the majority should be explaining why they're not. You put the time into explaining why –in a world where every concept of justice, wisdom, progress and rightness is a human invention –we still prefer the human concept of 'some people being inferior to others' over 'this is a vast, inky, cold, empty universe, and in it, we are the only humans that exist, all sharing a tiny milky green/ blue world, and faced with a multitude of problems, and an infinite capacity for joy, and should therefore try and stick together and accord each other some respect'. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Feminist quotes by Christine De Pizan
#82. ... one could find plenty of intelligent women in the world if one were willing to look. #Quote by Christine De Pizan
Feminist quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#83. The cultural institutions which embody and enforce those interlocked aberrations-for instance, law, art, religion, nation-states, the family, tribe, or commune based on father-right-these institutions are real and they must be destroyed. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Feminist quotes by Brittany Cavallaro
#84. You think you're defending my 'honor,' but you're just as bad as he is. #Quote by Brittany Cavallaro
Feminist quotes by Maria Mies
#85. The feminist project is basically an anarchist movement which does not want to replace one (male) power elite by another (female) power elite, but which wants to build up a non-hierarchical, non-centralised society where no elite lives of exploitation and dominance over others. #Quote by Maria Mies
Feminist quotes by Buchi Emecheta
#86. I work toward the liberation of women, but I'm not feminist. I'm just a woman. #Quote by Buchi Emecheta
Feminist quotes by Noam Chomsky
#87. Over the last 25 years, the major popular movements that have had significant impact on the general society and have changed it, that have had a major civilizing effect – the feminist movement, the environmental movement, and so on – these are mostly developments of the '70s and '80s. Their roots might be in the activism of the '60s, but the movements themselves developed and extended later. The same is true of the changes in respect for other cultures, rights of oppressed people, and so on. These are quite significant changes. If you compare the United States now to what it was, say, 35 years ago, the changes are quite dramatic. These are changes in popular consciousness that are quite deeply embedded. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Feminist quotes by Carolyn Rodgers
#88. Some Me of Beauty

I took a good long look at myself in a full length mirror
Sometimes it's good to look in a full length mirror
And what I saw was not some soul sister poetess of the moment
But I saw just a woman
Just a woman feeling
Just a woman human
And what I felt was
What I felt was a spiritual revelation
And what I felt was a root revival of some love coming on
Coming on strong
And I knew then, looking in a full length mirror,
That many things were over
And some me of beauty was about to begin #Quote by Carolyn Rodgers
Feminist quotes by Caitlin Moran
#89. You should write, write, write every day, and learn to edit and pare it right back so you're proud of every sentence, and each one is either being useful or beautiful, but hopefully both. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Feminist quotes by John Waters
#90. I think the best article was the article about radical feminists being against transgender women. I found that the most fascinating article and I absolutely loved it. I love battles within the gay community or feminist community. I love radical theorists. #Quote by John Waters
Feminist quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#91. In India, a "bride burning"-- to punish a woman for inadequate dowry or to eliminate her so a man can remarry-- takes place approximately once every two hours, but rarely constitute news. #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Feminist quotes by Isabel Allende
#92. But why give a man something it's so hard to earn? In that respect women are really thick. They're the daughters of rigidity. They need a man to feel secure but they don't realize that the one thing they should be afraid of is men. They don't know how to run their lives. They have to sacrifice themselves for the sake of someone else. Whores are the worst, patron, believe me. They throw their lives away working for some pimp, smile when he beats them, feel proud when he's well dressed, with his gold teeth and rings on his fingers, and when he goes off and takes up with a woman half their age they forgive him everything because 'he's a man. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Feminist quotes by Siobhan Vivian
#93. It's as if our girls don't understand that they can be recognized for other things
their goals, their brains. Not just their bodies. #Quote by Siobhan Vivian
Feminist quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#94. If feminism means anything at all, women with power should be addressing their energies to help the girls and women who suffer the pain of genital mutilation, who are at risk of being murdered because of their Western lifestyle and ideas, who must ask for permission just to leave the house, who are treated no better than serfs, branded and mutilated, traded without regard to their wishes. If you are a true feminist, these women should be your first priority. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Feminist quotes by Hanna Rosin
#95. Maybe there's something about the outsiderness of being Jewish that makes for a fiery feminist type. #Quote by Hanna Rosin
Feminist quotes by Caitlin Moran
#96. Batman doesn't want a baby in order to feel he's 'done everything'. He's just saved Gotham again! If this means that Batman must be a feminist role model above, say, Nicola Horlick, then so be it. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Feminist quotes by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
#97. Well, as a militant feminist, I believe in complete equality with men: intellectual, professional, economic, social and sexual; they're all equally essential, and they're all equally lacking in American society today. #Quote by Madalyn Murray O'Hair
Feminist quotes by Natalie Portman
#98. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with. #Quote by Natalie Portman
Feminist quotes by Nicole Holofcener
#99. I don't think of myself in a political way, though I am definitely a feminist. #Quote by Nicole Holofcener
Feminist quotes by Jessica Valenti
#100. I'm glad that we have a history at all and that we can talk about feminist history. But I do think that it doesn't really pay attention to the complexity and the nuance that is feminist thought. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Feminist quotes by Melanie Brown
#101. I wouldn't call myself a feminist. I try to live by the girl-power motto. It's about believing in yourself, no matter how bad a day you're having, and lending your support to other women. It's empowering to have that camaraderie with other women. #Quote by Melanie Brown
Feminist quotes by Bell Hooks
#102. As all advocates of feminist politics know most people do not understand sexism or if they do they think it is not a problem. Masses of people think that feminism is always and only about women seeking to be equal to men. And a huge majority of these folks think feminism is anti-male. Their misunderstanding of feminist politics reflects the reality that most folks learn about feminism from patriarchal mass media. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Feminist quotes by Margo Jefferson
#103. For better or worse, there is not a situation in one's daily life that does not have feminist subtext, superstructure, implications and one is constantly aware of it, even when you want to rest it stands up and hits you in the face. #Quote by Margo Jefferson
Feminist quotes by Sally Helgesen
#104. Women's entry into the public sphere can be seen not merely as the result of contemporary economic pressures, the high rate of divorce, or the success of the feminist movement, but rather as a profound evolutionary response to a pervasive cultural crisis. Feminine principles are entering the public realm because we can no longer afford to restrict them to the private domestic sphere, nor allow a public culture obsessed with Warrior values to control human destiny if we are to survive. #Quote by Sally Helgesen
Feminist quotes by Anna Quindlen
#105. I've been a feminist since I was a teenager, but originally it was because I wanted to make the world a better place for me. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Feminist quotes by Christina Hendricks
#106. I don't think it's not feminist to use every tool you have to succeed, and part of that is being a woman - presenting yourself in a certain way. #Quote by Christina Hendricks
Feminist quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#107. Families make possible the super-exploitation of women by training them to look upon their work outside the home as peripheral to their 'true' role. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Feminist quotes by Ellen Goodman
#108. It's self-deceptive to think we're in a post-feminist world when we never tried a feminist world. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Feminist quotes by Jane Goldman
#109. The 1980s: feminism, postmodernism, sexual/textual politics

While it might be tempting to generalise that Woolf 's writing was being discussed almost in two separate camps during the 1980s, formalists on the one hand, and feminists on the other, this would be to simplify things too far.
Many critics were attempting to make sense of and connect her feminist politics with her modernist practices. Such investigations coincided with the explosion of theory in literary studies, and once again the work of Virginia
Woolf was central to the framing of many of the major theoretical developments in literary critical engagements with feminism, postmodernism, deconstruction and psychoanalysis. In the context of the rise of 'high theory'
and the questioning of old-school Marxist, materialist, humanist and historicist literary theories, Woolf studies wrestled with the locating of her radical feminist politics in the avant-garde qualities of the text itself, and its endlessly transgressive play of signifiers, with the Woolfian inscription of radically deconstructed models of the self and of sexuality and jouissance. #Quote by Jane Goldman
Feminist quotes by Gloria Steinem
#110. People start to talk about post-racist, post-feminist. What does that mean? We're clearly not post either. Would you say post-democracy? Clearly we haven't reached true democracy yet. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Feminist quotes by Christina Hoff Sommers
#111. Perhaps in the pursuit of happiness, men and women take somewhat different paths. And, isn't it more than a little patronizing to suggest that most ... women are not free? They're not self-determining human beings? #Quote by Christina Hoff Sommers
Feminist quotes by Bell Hooks
#112. We don't hear much from revolutionary feminists who are white because they're not serving the bourgeois agenda of the status quo. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Feminist quotes by Margaret Atwood
#113. I sink down into my body as into a swamp, fenland, where only I know the footing ... .
I'm a cloud, congealed around a central object, the shape of a pear, which is hard and more real than I am and glows red within its translucent wrapping. Inside it is a space, huge as the sky at night and dark and curved like that, though black-red rather than black. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Feminist quotes by Lorde
#114. I think I'm speaking for a bunch of girls when I say that the idea that feminism is completely natural and shouldn't even be something that people find mildly surprising ... I find a lot of feminist reading quite confusing and that often there's a set of rules, and people will be like, 'Oh, this person isn't a true feminist because they don't embody this one thing,' and I don't know, often there is a lot of gray area that can be hard to navigate. #Quote by Lorde
Feminist quotes by Fay Weldon
#115. I didn't even know I was a feminist until I read it on the back of one of my own books. #Quote by Fay Weldon
Feminist quotes by Ellen Page
#116. I call myself a feminist when people ask me if I am, and of course I am 'cause it's about equality, so I hope everyone is. You know you're working in a patriarchal society when the word "feminist" has a weird connotation. #Quote by Ellen Page
Feminist quotes by Cherie Blair
#117. I have no problem with saying I am a socialist or with saying I'm a feminist. That's how I was when I was 15, and you know, I haven't grown out of it and probably never will. #Quote by Cherie Blair
Feminist quotes by Kaya Oakes
#118. I hear what they're saying about faith, about the priests at our church and how they relate to women, about the bishops and cardinals above the priests and how they ignore women, about the things they are reading and thinking about. And I realize several things in rapid succession: you can be Catholic and feminist. You can be Catholic and lesbian. You can be Catholic and a straight female and not have kids. You can be Catholic and have children but wonder if they should be Catholic. You can be Catholic and believe in better access to birth control, especially in impoverished and AIDS-ravaged communities. You can be Catholic and female and not be a nun and still be a leader in the church. Women, as it turns out, are part of the priestly class. It's just that they aren't allowed to minister publicly. They do it in places like here, and in hospitals, classrooms, homeless shelters, and in any room, really, where there is someone who needs healing. #Quote by Kaya Oakes
Feminist quotes by Jessica Valenti
#119. Something I say a lot when it comes to anti-feminist stereotypes is that they exist for a reason. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Feminist quotes by Solange Nicole
#120. It takes more than balls to be a woman. It takes ovaries. #Quote by Solange Nicole
Feminist quotes by Carrie Brownstein
#121. The fact that people go to Portland to visit a tiny feminist bookstore-no matter what the impetus is for them getting there-the fact that they go in there and look around and shop for books or stationery or whatever, is a major source of pride for me, #Quote by Carrie Brownstein
Feminist quotes by Maggie Georgiana Young
#122. I always imagined rape as this violent scene of a woman walking alone down a dark alley and getting mugged and beaten by some masked criminal. Rape was an angry man forcing himself inside a damsel in distress. I would not carry the trauma of a cliché rape victim. I would not shriek in the midst of my slumber with night terrors. I would not tremble at the sight of every dark haired man or the mention of Number 1's name. I would not even harbor ill will towards him. My damage was like a cigarette addiction- subtle, seemingly innocent, but everlasting and inevitably detrimental.
Number 1 never opened his screen door to furious crowds waving torches and baseball bats. Nobody punched him out in my honor. The Nightfall crowd never socially ostracized him. Even the ex-boyfriend who'd second handedly fused the entire fiasco continued to mingle with him in drug circles. Everybody continued with business as usual. And when I told my parents I lost my virginity against my will, unconscious on a bathroom floor, Carl did not erupt in fury and demand I give him all I knew about his whereabouts so he could greet him with a rifle. Mom blankly shrugged and mumbled, "Oh, that's too bad," and drifted into the kitchen as if I'd received a stubbed toe rather than a shredded hymen.
Everyone in my life took my rape as lightly as a brief thunderstorm that might have been frightening when it happened, but was easy to forget about. I adopted that mentality as the foundation of my sex life #Quote by Maggie Georgiana Young
Feminist quotes by Jami Attenberg
#123. No matter how many feminist tracts you read, you never forget what boys like. #Quote by Jami Attenberg
Feminist quotes by Emma Mildon
#124. Truth is, there comes a time when turning a new page in your life is the most liberating and empowering feeling you can experience. It is that sweet moment of fruition, when you realize there's so much more to the book of life. That the power of birthing the life you wish for lays in your hands to turn over, and cast out what doesn't feed your soul, add to your life, help you grow, or consciously challenge you. Keep turning pages Goddess. You are allowed and encouraged to change. #Quote by Emma Mildon
Feminist quotes by Jane Caro
#125. I have to hand it to the patriarchy. It has been a brilliant and comprehensive strategy to keep women under control, to create so many hurdles and levels of difficulty - both overt and covert, both in the workplace and in the home, both through the tax system and the lack of services - that women must expend much of their energy just overcoming them and have little left over for battling promotion and higher wages. Exhaustion is a feminist issue. #Quote by Jane Caro
Feminist quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#126. Patriotism threatens free speech with death. It is infuriated by thoughtful hesitation, constructive criticism of our leaders and pleas for peace. It despises people of foreign birth. It has specifically blamed homosexuals, feminists and the American Civil Liberties Union. In other words, the American flag stands for intimidation, censorship, violence, bigotry, sexism, homophobia and shoving the Constitution through a paper shredder. Whom are we calling terrorists here? #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Feminist quotes by Chris Sardegna
#127. Feminism, which is supposedly for everybody, apparently has no place for conservative women. Why would feminists need to exclude entire swaths of the population? Because they know their ideology cannot stand up to challenges, they know they themselves do not understand it, and they know that to accomplish their goals they cannot allow discussion to occur....To pretend that your ideology is impenetrable and the obvious answer to modern social problems and then to turn around and exclude people from the discussion only creates more holes in the theories themselves and serves to demonstrate the liberal superiority complex. #Quote by Chris Sardegna
Feminist quotes by Ella Whelan
#128. Feminists believe that women should be protected from certain aspects of public life, including speech..... Feminists do not want to engage in aspects of life they disagree with. Instead, they want to silence what they don't like through censorship and criminalisation. Feminists believe that women need protection from words.
Finally, contemporary feminists do not believe that women are independent, free-thinking individuals. Feminists promote a cliquey, sisterhood mentality, but not through a collective and positive sharing of ideas. They're the kind of group you'd encounter at school who would shun you if you weren't wearing the right kind of hairband. Today's feminism is opposed to criticism and nuance, refusing to allow women to form their own opinions or challenge preconceived ideas. #Quote by Ella Whelan
Feminist quotes by Jane Fonda
#129. Christ was the first feminist and because of that I've learned from his teaching to call myself a Christian feminist, adding that her faith is not a matter of traditions and dogmas but, rather, a spiritual experience. #Quote by Jane Fonda
Feminist quotes by Gloria Steinem
#130. I'm more often confronted by women who come from religious traditions and don't feel that they have a place in the feminist movement. I've felt pressure when reporters asked me, "Do you believe in God?" I do say, "No. I believe in people." #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Feminist quotes by Sarah Bessey
#131. Our big and good God is at work in the world, and we have been invited to participate fully - however God has gifted and equipped and called each of us. One needn't identify as a feminist to participate in the redemptive movement of God for women in the world. The gospel is more than enough. Of course it is! But as long as I know how important maternal health is to Haiti's future, and as long as I know that women are being abused and raped, as long as I know girls are being denied life itself through selective abortion, abandonment, and abuse, as long as brave little girls in Afghanistan are attacked with acid for the crime of going to school, and until being a Christian is synonymous with doing something about these things, you can also call me a feminist.23 #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Feminist quotes by Jessica Valenti
#132. Trusting women means also trusting them to find their way. This isn't to say, of course, that I think women's sexual choices are intrinsically "empowered" or "feminist." I just believe that in a world that values women so little, and so specifically for their sexuality, we should be giving them the benefit of the doubt. Because in this kind of hostile culture, trusting women
is a radical act. #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Feminist quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#133. I am absolutely not a feminist, I am against stupidity, and if it comes from males or females, it doesn't change anything. If it means that women and men, they are equal, then OK, certainly I am a feminist. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Feminist quotes by Christine Gregoire
#134. It's our responsibility to pass on what we inherited, not to squander it, but to build on it. #Quote by Christine Gregoire
Feminist quotes by Ariel Levy
#135. Female Chauvinist Pigs don't bother to question the criteria on which women are judged, they are too busy judging other women themselves #Quote by Ariel Levy
Feminist quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#136. Under patriarchy, no woman is safe to live her life, or to love, or to mother children. Under patriarchy, every woman is a victim, past, present, and future. Under patriarchy, every woman's daughter is a victim, past, present, and future. Under patriarchy, every woman's son is her potential betrayer and also the inevitable rapist or exploiter of another woman. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Feminist quotes by Chris Kraus
#137. That spring everyone in Judy Chicago's class collaborated on a 24 hour performance called Route 126. The curator Moira Roth recalls: "the group created a sequence of events throughout the day along the highway. The day began with Suzanne Lacy's Car Renovation in which the group decorated an abandoned car…and ended with the women standing on a beach watching Nancy Youdelman, wrapped in yards of gossamer silk, slowly wade out to sea until she drowned, apparently…" There's a fabulous photo taken by Faith Wilding of the car - a Kotex-pink jalopy washed up on desert rocks. The trunk's flung open and underneath it's painted cuntblood red. Strands of desert grass spill from the crumpled hood like Rapunzel's fucked-up hair. According to Performance Anthology - Source Book For A Decade Of California Art, this remarkable event received no critical coverage at the time though contemporaneous work by Baldessari, Burden, Terry Fox boasts bibliographies several pages long. Dear Dick, I'm wondering why every act that narrated female lived experience in the '70s has been read only as "collaborative" and "feminist." The Zurich Dadaists worked together too but they were geniuses and they had names. #Quote by Chris Kraus
Feminist quotes by Emily Matchar
#138. When we combine very real workplace inequalities with these romantic opt-out stories, the idea that "having it all" is a laughable goal becomes enshrined as immutable truth. And when we portray opting out as a simple matter of "choice," we ignore the systematic problems that make combining work and motherhood so difficult. #Quote by Emily Matchar
Feminist quotes by Gabrielle
#139. I hope I just show women that its OK to inhabit your own body. Im not a rah-rah feminist. But its important to me that people see you can be an athlete and be strong-and also be a girl. #Quote by Gabrielle
Feminist quotes by Clara Bingham
#140. Knowing what I know today about how deeply the word feminist threatens the existing social compact, to say radical feminist now seems to me almost redundant. (Robin Morgan) #Quote by Clara Bingham
Feminist quotes by Melanie Neale
#141. Part of it was a feminist streak and the other part of it was the ultimate in antifeminism: a deeply rooted need in me to be accepted by my dad and by other men. If I could do the same things as them, I would be accepted into their world. #Quote by Melanie Neale
Feminist quotes by Emery Lord
#142. She'd tell her daughters someday: 'If you don't feel safe enough to yell back, you're not safe enough. My babies, that is not love. #Quote by Emery Lord
Feminist quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#143. That word can be very extreme ... But I guess I am a modern-day feminist. I do believe in equality. Why do you have to choose what type of woman you are? Why do you have to label yourself anything? I'm just a woman and I love being a woman. If you're attractive then you can't be sexy, and you can't be intelligent? What is all of that?
-from Vogue #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Feminist quotes by Adrienne Rich
#144. I am a feminist because I feel endangered, psychically and physically, by this society and because I believe that the women's movement is saying that we have come to an edge of history when men - insofar as they are embodiments of the patriarchal idea - have become dangerous to children and other living things, themselves included #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Feminist quotes by Leela Fernandes
#145. Reclaiming the sacred... is not simply a new linguistic or symbolic strategy for feminism. It goes to the heart of feminist struggles for social justice and can provide a critical foundation for social transformation. At one level, feminism becomes a means for the decolonization of the divine. At another level, the provision of spiritual strength to individuals deeply committed to social justice is more necessary than ever in a world racked by immense hatreds that feed on each other in endless cycles of retribution, always in the name of 'justice.' Finally, a spiritualization of social movements can provide a means with which to break from these cycles of retribution which perpetrate multiple and linked forms of oppression so that social movements continually find themselves appropriated by or circumscribed within the very structures they have tried wholeheartedly to resist. #Quote by Leela Fernandes
Feminist quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#146. Mythology is all shite anyway,' she says. 'It never has stories about people like us. I'd rather write my own legends, or be the story someone else looks to one day, build a strong foundation for those who follow us. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee
Feminist quotes by Judith Butler
#147. Sexual harassment law is very important. But I think it would be a mistake if the sexual harassment law movement is the only way in which feminism is known in the media. #Quote by Judith Butler
Feminist quotes by Bell Hooks
#148. Using pseudonyms was such a part of the early feminist movement. We didn't want to have this star system. We wanted attention on the ideas, not the persona of the writer. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Feminist quotes by Nicole Kidman
#149. I have always tried to be a woman who protects other women. I have a sister, I have daughters, I have girlfriends, and I was raised by a feminist mother. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#150. I am failing as a woman. I am failing as a feminist. To freely accept the feminist label would not be fair to good feminists. If I am, indeed, a feminist, I am a rather bad one. I am a mess of contradictions. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Dexter Palmer
#151. You must have also observed the masculine bias in the English language itself, in which women - literally, 'not men' - are daily confronted with the terror, unknowable to men, of concepts which they can imagine, but which an inherently patriarchal language does not allow them to express. #Quote by Dexter Palmer
Feminist quotes by Roxane Gay
#152. Maybe I'm a bad feminist, but I am deeply committed to the issues important to the feminist movement. I have strong opinions about misogyny, institutional sexism that consistently places women at a disadvantage, the inequity in pay, the cult of beauty and thinness, the repeated attacks on reproductive freedom, violence against women, and on and on. I am as committed to fighting fiercely for equality as I am committed to disrupting the notion that there is an essential feminism. #Quote by Roxane Gay
Feminist quotes by Bell Hooks
#153. Like many liberal men in the age of feminism, he believed women should have equal access to jobs and be given equal pay, but when it came to matters of home and heart he still believed caregiving was the female role. Like many men, he wanted a woman to be 'just like his mama' so that he did not have to do the work of growing up. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Feminist quotes by Naomi Wolf
#154. There was a bad patch in the '80s and early '90s when feminist thinking had become sort of a monopoly and had developed a series of litmus tests. #Quote by Naomi Wolf
Feminist quotes by Rita Ora
#155. I think people take the word 'feminist' really seriously, and I think people are scared to use that word. #Quote by Rita Ora
Feminist quotes by Jenny Daggers
#156. In this postcolonial context, my contention is that interreligious engagement is enhanced by renewed attention to the particularity of religious traditions. From a European (Anglican) standpoint, a revised particularist theology of religions is proposed as an appropriate Christian theology for our time that respects the integrity of Christianity and of other religious traditions. This particularist approach concerns Christian terms of engagement with other religious traditions, as these may be understood in Christian theological terms. Having regard to questions raised in the opening paragraph above, centred in trinitarian thinking, as capable of hospitality to the liberative and interreligious concerns of post-colonial, Asian and feminist theologies; respectful interreligious engagement and the pursuit of gender justice amid increasing global diversity need not require repudiation of orthodox trinitarian thought and its liturgical expressions. #Quote by Jenny Daggers
Feminist quotes by Natalie C. Parker
#157. In all the tales of adventure Clara had ever heard, it was never young girls, who were daring. It was always boys running off to rescue a friend or fetch much-needed medicine or stumble into good fortune. Clara knew girls would be daring if given half the chance. And she intended to take that chance, right from under the pale nose of Mr. Earwood. #Quote by Natalie C. Parker
Feminist quotes by Hanna Rosin
#158. I think we should all call ourselves feminists. #Quote by Hanna Rosin
Feminist quotes by Agnes Repplier
#159. The pitfall of the feminist is the belief that the interests of men and women can ever be severed; that what brings sufferings to the one can leave the other unscathed. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Feminist quotes by William Moulton Marston
#160. The truest kindness to any woman is to provide her with an opportunity for self-expression in some constructive field: to work, not at home with cook-stove and scrubbing brush, but outside, independently, in the world of men and affairs. #Quote by William Moulton Marston
Feminist quotes by Susan Faludi
#161. [M]aleness in America," as Margaret Mead wrote, "is not absolutely defined; it has to be kept and reearned every day, and one essential element in the definition is beating women in every game that both sexes play." Nothing seems to crush the masculine petals more than a bit of feminist rain - a few drops are perceived as a downpour. "Men view even small losses of deference, advantages or opportunities as large threats, " wrote William Goode, one of many sociologists to puzzle over the peculiarly hyperbolic male reaction to minuscule improvements to women's rights. #Quote by Susan Faludi
Feminist quotes by Daphne Gottlieb
#162. The thing about superheroes is that they don't have problems, right? A feminist hooker superhero wouldn't have to worry about assault, or pregnancy, or poverty, or disease, or eating and shelter, or police. In order to make her a superhero, you have to divorce her of the very context that makes her story possible. You have to gloss over the trauma. #Quote by Daphne Gottlieb
Feminist quotes by Cass Sunstein
#163. Great works - and I think Star Wars is a great work - are easily susceptible to multiple plausible interpretations. Some of them are pretty nutty, but the idea that we should see it as profoundly feminist, or as a deeply Christian tale, or as a Freudian exercise ... I think all of those have some truth. #Quote by Cass Sunstein

Feminist quotes by Patricia Hill Collins
#165. The potential significance of Black feminist thought goes far beyond demonstrating that African-American women can be theorists. Like Black feminist practice, which it reflects and which it seeks to foster, Black feminist thought can create a collective identity among African-American women about the dimensions of a Black women's standpoint. Through the process of rearticulating, Black feminist thought can offer African-American women a different view of ourselves and our worlds #Quote by Patricia Hill Collins

#171. The king was pregnant. #Quote by Ursula K. Le Guin
Feminist quotes by Chester Brown
#172. Feminists have accepted that choice is possible when it comes to a different, difficult subject: abortion. The feminist position (and I agree with it) is that women own their bodies and therefore each woman has the right to choose to get an abortion if she gets pregnant. This is called being "pro-choice". Feminists should be consistent on the subject of choice. If a woman has the right to choose to have an abortion, she should also have the right to choose to have sex for money. It's her body; it's her right. #Quote by Chester Brown
Feminist quotes by Virginia Woolf

Feminist quotes by Maggie Young
#178. I fell in love with a sniper - a man whose basic training instills psychopathic tendencies. I loved a professional dehumanizer. I loved a man who lived in a world where empathy was suicide. I loved a man who had to be ready to put a bullet through a toddler's skull if necessary. I loved a man highly skilled in burying his emotions, resurrecting them if and when he chose. I loved a man who saw me as his enemy. I loved a man I was disposable to. #Quote by Maggie Young

Feminist quotes by Lubos Motl
#182. According to polls, a majority (around 60+ percent) opposes the radar base. But it's not necessarily the sensible part of the Czech population. The demonstrations against the base are usually organized by communists, Islamists, and "peaceful feminists" (which is fortunately not a numerous group). #Quote by Lubos Motl
Feminist quotes by Ann Nocenti
#183. When I first started writing comics, in the way-back days, Typhoid Mary was my explosive response to women characters in comics - I made her an innocent virginal type, a clever, dark, liberated woman, and as Bloody Mary, a feminist bent of punishing men - all in one character. She was an instinctual rather than a calculated creation. #Quote by Ann Nocenti
Feminist quotes by Eve Ensler
#184. It really occurred to me at a certain point: women have not been embodied. Feminism has not been embodied. It hasn't gotten into us in a way where it is so undeniable that there is nothing to prove. Do you know what I mean? That we are so in our feminist skin, so to speak, that we are that world now. #Quote by Eve Ensler
Feminist quotes by Imogen Poots
#185. I still try to be a feminist in some tiny way. #Quote by Imogen Poots
Feminist quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#186. If she likes makeup, let her wear it. If she likes fashion, let her dress up. But if she doesn't like either, let her be. Don't think that raising her feminist means forcing her to reject femininity. Feminism and femininity are not mutually exclusive. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Feminist quotes by Jennifer Crusie

She lives in the feminist "wishful-thinking world," as the Village Voice called it, dreamed up by creator Amy Sherman Palladino, where single moms raise brilliant daughters and men are nothing more than trifling distractions. I live in a post-feminist world that kicked in after the advent of Gilmore Girls, a place where Maureen Dowd asks Are Men Necessary? and we answer, "Not really." Modern girls may not talk as fast as the Gilmore girls or engage in witty repartee with colorful townsfolk, but as far as female empowerment goes, we're catching up fast. #Quote by Jennifer Crusie
Feminist quotes by Amy Lee
#188. I try to be feminist in, like, I love myself and I don't need someone else's approval. #Quote by Amy Lee
Feminist quotes by Andrea Dworkin
#189. We are born into a world in which sexual possibilities are narrowly circumscribed ... We are programmed by the culture as surely as rats are programmed to make the arduous way through the scientist's maze, and that programming operates on every level of choice and action. #Quote by Andrea Dworkin
Feminist quotes by Kirsten Gillibrand
#190. I hate the phrase 'having it all,' because it demeans women who do stay home with their children, by implying that their lives are less than full. One of the main goals of the feminist movement is that all women should be able to make the best choices for themselves and their families, and no one should be belittled, degraded, or disregarded because of what she chooses to do. #Quote by Kirsten Gillibrand

Feminist quotes by Jennifer Saunders
#193. I write for women because it's the only way I can use what I've experienced. It's good that people like what I write, but I don't want to go down the feminist path. #Quote by Jennifer Saunders
Feminist quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#194. Because human beings lived then in a world in which physical strength was the most
important attribute for survival; the physically stronger person was more likely to lead.
And men in general are physically stronger. (There are of course many exceptions.)
Today, we live in a vastly diʃerent world. The person more qualiɹed to lead is not the
physically stronger person. It is the more intelligent, the more knowledgeable, the more
creative, more innovative. And there are no hormones for those attributes. A man is as
likely as a woman to be intelligent, innovative, creative. We have evolved. But our
ideas of gender have not evolved very much. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Feminist quotes by Janet Mock

#196. Today masses of black women in the U.S. refuse to acknowledge that they have much to gain by feminist struggle. They fear feminism. They have stood in place so long that they are afraid to move. They fear change. They fear losing what little they have. #Quote by Bell Hooks

Feminist quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#200. You learn that the only way to get rock-star power as a girl is to be a groupie and bare your breasts and get chosen for the night. We learn that the only way to get anywhere is through men. And it's a lie. #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
