Gender Stereotypes quotes by Heather O'Neill
#1. Being a woman was a trap. Something would bring you down before you were twenty-three. The only time the world shows you any favor, or cuts you any slack, is during that very brief period of courtship where the world is trying to fuck you for the first time. #Quote by Heather O'Neill
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#2. I am somewhat allergic to explanations that divide men and women into frozen categories and attribute to each sex its characteristic virtues and shortcomings. #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Gender Stereotypes quotes by David Wong
#3. When a man plans, a woman laughs. #Quote by David Wong
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Hilary Mantel
#4. He says in his defence he never meddled with married women, only with virgins. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Naomi Alderman
#5. Gender is a shell game. What is a man? Whatever a woman isn't. What is a woman? Whatever a man is not. Tap on it and it's hollow. Look under the shells: it's not there. #Quote by Naomi Alderman
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Bertolt Brecht
#6. If you join the rat race - you're in the race of rats. #Quote by Bertolt Brecht
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gary Gygax
#7. Although the masculine form of appellation is typically used when listing the level titles of the various types of characters, these names can easily be changed to the feminine if desired. This is fantasy--what's in a name? In all but a few cases sex makes no difference to ability! #Quote by Gary Gygax
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#8. Women need to feel loved and men need to feel needed. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Betty Friedan
#9. We have gone on too long blaming or pitying the mothers who devour their children, who sow the seeds of progressive dehumanization, because they have never grown to full humanity themselves. If the mother is at fault, why isn't it time to break the pattern by urging all these Sleeping Beauties to grow up and live their own lives? There never will be enough Prince Charmings or enough therapists to break that pattern now. It is society's job, and finally that of each woman alone. For it is not the strength of the mothers that is at fault but their weakness, their passive childlike dependency and immaturity that is mistaken for "femininity." Our society forces boys, insofar as it can, to grow up, to endure the pains of growth, to educate themselves to work, to move on. Why aren't girls forced to grow up - to achieve somehow the core of self that will end the unnecessary dilemma, the mistaken choice between femaleness and humanness that is implied in the feminine mystique? #Quote by Betty Friedan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Lorin Morgan-Richards
#10. One day stores will no longer have gender classifications. Instead the consumer decides how and what they want, rather than the social engineering of corporations. The concept of gender will be extinct. #Quote by Lorin Morgan-Richards
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Bell Hooks
#11. The wounded child inside many males is a boy who, when he first spoke his truths, was silenced by paternal sadism, by a patriarchal world that did not want him to claim his true feelings. The wounded child inside many females is a girl who was taught from early childhood that she must become something other than herself, deny her true feelings, in order to attract and please others. When men and women punish each other for truth telling, we reinforce the notion that lies are better. To be loving we willingly hear the other's truth, and most important, we affirm the value of truth telling. Lies may make people feel better, but they do not help them to know love. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sallie Tisdale
#12. Quickly I find another surprise. The boys are wilder writers - less careful of convention, more willing to leap into the new. I start watching the dozens of vaguely familiar girls, who seem to have shaved off all distinguishing characteristics. They are so careful. Careful about their appearance, what they say and how they say it, how they sit, what they write. Even in the five-minute free writes, they are less willing to go out from where they are - to go out there, where you have to go, to write. They are reluctant to show me rough work, imperfect work, anything I might criticize; they are very careful to write down my instructions word by word.

They're all trying themselves on day by day, hour by hour, I know - already making choices that will last too unfairly long. I'm surprised to find, after a few days, how invigorating it all is. I pace and plead for reaction, for ideas, for words, and gradually we all relax a little and we make progress. The boys crouch in their too-small desks, giant feet sticking out, and the girls perch on the edge, alert like little groundhogs listening for the patter of coyote feet. I begin to like them a lot.

Then the outlines come in. I am startled at the preoccupation with romance and family in many of these imaginary futures. But the distinction between boys and girls is perfectly, painfully stereotypical. The boys also imagine adventure, crime, inventions, drama. One expects war with China, several get rich and l #Quote by Sallie Tisdale
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Terry Pratchett
#13. The female mind is certainly a devious one, my lord."
Vetinari looked at his secretary in surprise. "Well, of course it is. It has to deal with the male one. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Dennis Sharpe
#14. Like all men who look this good, Frank has no interest in women. #Quote by Dennis Sharpe
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#15. It takes a near act of rebellion for even a four-year-old to break away from society's expectations. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Norah Vincent
#16. There is a time in a boy's life when the sweetness is pounded out of him; and tenderness, and the ability to show what he feels, is gone. #Quote by Norah Vincent
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Oscar Wilde
#17. My dear boy, no woman is a genius. Women are a decorative sex. They never have anything to say, but they say it charmingly. Women represent the triumph of matter over mind, just as men represent the triumph of mind over morals. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Chuck Klosterman
#18. Just watch any husband arguing with his wife about something insignificant; listen to what they say and watch how their residual emotions manifest when the fight is over. It's so formulaic and unsurprising that you wouldn't dare re-create it in a movie. All the critics would mock it. They'd all say the screenwriter was a hack who didn't even try. This is why movies have less value than we like to pretend - movies can't show reality, because honest depictions of reality offend intelligent people. #Quote by Chuck Klosterman
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sara Benincasa
#19. I'm a young woman who subverts the conventionally accepted gender paradigm because I refuse to conform. #Quote by Sara Benincasa
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Charlotte Whitton
#20. Whatever women do they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult. #Quote by Charlotte Whitton
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Stage Beauty
#21. Your old tutor did you a great disservice, Mr. Kynaston. He taught you how to speak, and swoon, and toss your head but he never taught you how to suffer like a woman, or love like a woman. He trapped a man in a woman's form and left you there to die! I always hated you as Desdemona. You never fought! You just died, beautifully. No woman would die like that, no matter how much she loved him. A woman would fight! #Quote by Stage Beauty
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Belle De Jour
#22. Male egos require constant stroking. Every task is an achievement, every success epic. That is why women cook, but men are chefs: we make cheese on toast, they produce pain de fromage. #Quote by Belle De Jour
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Wiss Auguste
#23. She was flabbergasted by the backward thinking of humankind. The damaging double standards that fueled gender disparity infuriated her. #Quote by Wiss Auguste
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Jerome K. Jerome
#25. The only feeling that a closer intimacy has created in him for his wife is that of indulgent contempt. As there is no equality between man and woman, so there can be no respect. She is a different being. He must either look up to her as superior to himself, or down upon her as inferior. When a man does the former he is more or less in love, and love to John Ingerfield is an unknown emotion. Her beauty, her charm, her social tact
even while he makes use of them for his own purposes, he despises as the weapons of a weak nature. #Quote by Jerome K. Jerome
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#26. Guys, you don't have to act "manly" to be considered a man; you are a man, so just be yourself. You don't have to prove your masculinity to anyone. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Emma Watson
#27. We don't often talk about men being imprisoned by gender stereotypes but I can see that that they are and that when they are free, things will change for women as a natural consequence. #Quote by Emma Watson
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Ian McEwan
#28. Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short and wear shirts and boots because it's okay to be a boy; for girls it's like promotion. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading, according to you, because secretly you believe that being a girl is degrading. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Pat Conroy
#29. When men talk about the agony of being men, they can never quite get away from the recurrent theme of self-pity. And when women talk about being women, they can never quite get away from the recurrent theme of blaming men. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Shahla Khan
#30. Men are not from Mars and women are not from Venus instead we are all people. Deal with it. #Quote by Shahla Khan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by J. Courtney Sullivan
#31. Women leave their marriages when they can't take any more. Men leave when they find someone new. #Quote by J. Courtney Sullivan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Andrea Gibson
#32. They're telling you to blend in,
like you've never seen how a blender works,
like they think you've never seen the mess from the blade. #Quote by Andrea Gibson
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#33. A woman should never learn to sew, and is she can she shouldn't admit to it #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rachel Caine
#34. Because you've got guy parts, you're automatically a better mechanic than me? I don't think so, Eve said, and bailed out of the passenger side. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
#35. He shook his head. The next time I hear a women going on about how neurotic men are, I'm going to remember this. You tell me you like my body, and what do I say? I say, thank you. Then I tell you I like yours and what do I hear? A long lists of grievances. #Quote by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Tara Lain
#36. You know, there are several gay men on the faculty. Professor Montag makes jelly beans look colorless( ... ) #Quote by Tara Lain
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Cordelia Fine
#37. So far, the items on that list of brain differences that are thought to explain the gender status quo have always, in the end been crossed off. But before this happens, speculation becomes elevated to the status of fact, especially in the hands of some popular writers. Once in the public domain these supposed facts about male and female brains become part of the culture, often lingering on well past their best-by dates. Here they reinforce and legitimate the gender stereotypes that interact with our minds, helping to create the very gender inequalities that the neuroscientific claims seek to explain. #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Joan Jett
#38. I grew up in a world that told girls they couldn't play rock and roll. #Quote by Joan Jett
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Neil Strauss
#39. Men are not dogs. We merely think we are and, on occasion, act as if we are. But, by believing in our nobler nature, women have the amazing power to inspire us to live up to it. #Quote by Neil Strauss
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Peggy Natiello
#40. Criticism of the traditional male role is often mistaken for criticism of men themselves. When this happens, men understandably become defensive, push away any discussion of gender, and are unable to hear women's appeals for change. Any gender-role discussion quickly becomes a women's problem, and the issue is repressed by men who fell unjustly accused, and by women who are afraid of men's disapproval and anger. #Quote by Peggy Natiello
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Manil Suri
#41. I made sure we fucked whenever the conversations got too emotional or too long - we weren't lesbians, after all. #Quote by Manil Suri
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Anna Howard Shaw
#42. Valentine's Day is a sham created by card companies to reinforce gender stereotypes. [..] I'll buy some cookies, but NOT for Valentine's Day. These cookies celebrate the February 14th birthday of Anna Howard Shaw, famed American suffragette. #Quote by Anna Howard Shaw
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Stephen King
#43. Sons figured out they were bigger and never forgot it. Sons didn't care about the world they left for their sons or for their daughters, although they said they did when the time came to run for office. #Quote by Stephen King
Gender Stereotypes quotes by John Irving
#44. All men are liars, said Roberta Muldoon, who knew this was true because she had once been a man. #Quote by John Irving
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Mike Lew
#45. ...there is a particular focus of the problem faced only by men. It arises from our culture providing no room for a man as victim. #Quote by Mike Lew
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Marcel Achard
#46. Women like silent men. They think they're listening. #Quote by Marcel Achard
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Adora Svitak
#47. Success on the front of women's rights will look like a world not only with obvious advances - where no girl is denied access to education, for instance - but also one with more subtle changes in how we regard gender and gender stereotypes. #Quote by Adora Svitak
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Kristin Hannah
#48. At one point, she'd wanted to hurl the whole breakfast at the wall. And then she'd remember why it was that men had temper tantrums and women didn't: cleanup. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Paul Fussell
#49. If we do not redefine manhood, war is inevitable. #Quote by Paul Fussell
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Albert Einstein
#50. Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably they are both disappointed. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#51. The difference between the love of a man and the love of a woman is that a man will always give reasons for loving, but a woman gives no reasons for loving. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Gender Stereotypes quotes by William Keepin
#52. No one escapes gender conditioning. Most of us unwittingly carry the cultural gender shadow into our important relationships, and we end up in struggles with our partners, family members, friends, and colleagues that aren't really about us as individual. When women and men do gender reconciliation work in community, they begin to see the power of this cultural baggage in a new light. They realise the prevalence of overarching social patterns and conditioning in much of their experience – and comprehend that, in this larger context, they are not alone in what happened to them. #Quote by William Keepin
Gender Stereotypes quotes by David Sedaris
#53. Boys who spent their weekends making banana nut muffins did not, as a rule, excel in the art of hand-to-hand combat. #Quote by David Sedaris
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Matthew Henry
#54. Women were created from the rib of man to be beside him, not from his head to top him, nor from his feet to be trampled by him, but from under his arm to be protected by him, near to his heart to be loved by him. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#55. In politics, If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Judy Croome
#56. Camouflage your soul! Hide!Hide!Hide! The gender police are here. The gender police are everywhere. #Quote by Judy Croome
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Elizabeth Bear
#57. Stud males might be emotional, temperamental, and developmentally stunted, at the mercy of their androgens, but that didn't make them incapable of generosity, friendship, cleverness, or creativity. #Quote by Elizabeth Bear
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Neal Stephenson
#58. She's a woman, you're a dude. You're not supposed to understand her. That's not what she's after ... She doesn't want you to understand her. She knows that's impossible. She just wants you to understand yourself. Everything else is negotiable. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Isabel Allende
#59. A man does what he can; a woman does what a man cannot. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sam Hurt
#60. Eyebeam: What do you mean, I have "male answer syndrome"?

Sally: It's the compulsion to provide an answer to any question, even if it means resorting to pure speculation.

Eyebeam: I knew that…

Sally: It's a very widespread phenomenon.

Beth: I wonder what causes it?

Eyebeam: Cause? Well, society has chosen male role models who always exhibit total control… If a male says "I don't know", he's admitting to conversational helplessness and failing to live up to that societal standard…

Sally: Pretty pitiful, huh?

Eyebeam: Damn!

Beth: …And I always thought they learned it all in "shop". #Quote by Sam Hurt
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#61. Of course, our roles within the family are radically different. Generational stereotypes of moms and dads have disintegrated A-bomb style. We are making it up as we go along, pioneering a new era of equality. #Quote by Gudjon Bergmann
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gloria D. Gonsalves
#62. Gender is not only women and sexual orientation has multiple choices. #Quote by Gloria D. Gonsalves
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Helen DeWitt
#63. [ ... ] and unfortunately most women did not seem to have the same urges. Or if they did, they wouldn't admit it. They probably didn't, anyway. But if they did they wouldn't admit it. #Quote by Helen DeWitt
Gender Stereotypes quotes by David Lisak
#64. The biased use of pronouns serves to perpetuate the culturally based myth that men are perpetrators and women are victims. This myth is extremely damaging to the millions of male victims of sexual and physical abuse who live unacknowledged by our society. #Quote by David Lisak
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sarah  Cooper
#65. How much should you smile during your job interview? The answer is: not too much and definitely not too little. Try practicing a smile that's somewhere in between, even if it makes you look like you're having a stroke. This is your best option. #Quote by Sarah Cooper
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#66. The gender stereotypes introduced in childhood are reinforced throughout our lives and become self-fulfilling prophesies. Most leadership positions are held by men, so women don't expect to achieve them, and that becomes one of the reasons they don't. #Quote by Sheryl Sandberg
Gender Stereotypes quotes by M.E. Thomas
#67. When you grow up as a girl, it is like there are faint chalk lines traced approximately three inches around your entire body at all times, drawn by society and often religion and family and particularly other women, who somehow feel invested in how you behave, as if your actions reflect directly on all womanhood. #Quote by M.E. Thomas
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rebecca West
#68. People call me a feminist whenever I express statements that distinguish me from a doormat. #Quote by Rebecca West
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#69. ...above all, let your focus be on remaining a full person. Take time for yourself. Nurture your own needs.
Please do not think of it as 'doing it all'.
Our culture celebrates the idea of women who are able to 'do it all' but does not question the premise of that praise. I have no interest in the debate about women doing it all because it is a debate that assumes that caregiving and domestic work are singularly female domains, and idea that I strongly reject. Domestic work and caregiving should be gender-neutral, and we should be asking not whether a woman can 'do it all' but how best to support parents in their dual duties at work and at home. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Alice Walker
#70. The world is changing, I said. It is no longer a world just for boys and men.
Our women are respected here, said the father. We would never let them tramp the world as American women do. There is always someone to look after the Olinka woman. A father. An uncle. A brother or nephew. Do not be offended, Sister Nettie, but our people pity women such as you who are cast out, we know not from where, into a world unknown to you, where you must struggle all alone, for yourself.
So I am an object of pity and contempt, I thought, to men and women alike.
Furthermore, said Tashi's father, we are not simpletons. We understand that there are places in the world where women live differently from the way our women do, but we do not approve of this different way for our children.
But life is changing, even in Olinka, I said. We are here.
He spat on the ground. What are you? Three grownups and two children. In the rainy season some of you will probably die. You people do not last long in our climate. If you do not die, you will be weakened by illness. Oh, yes. We have seen it all before. You Christians come here, try hard to change us, get sick and go back to England, or wherever you come from. Only the trader on the coast remains, and even he is not the same white man, year in and year out. We know because we send him women.
Tashi is very intelligent, I said. She could be a teacher. A nurse. She could help the people in the village.
There is no place here #Quote by Alice Walker
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#71. To every guy who tries to say that we have already achieved equality for the sexes, if this were true, you wouldn't be told to "man up", "be a man", "stop being a p*#%y", "harden the fuck up", "toughen up", "boys don't cry", "don't be such a girl", "stop being a wimp". As long as this type of language still exists in our society, then gender equality, my friends, has in fact not been achieved after all. #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Nicole Hollander
#72. Can you imagine a world without men? There'd be no crime, and lots of fat happy women. #Quote by Nicole Hollander
Gender Stereotypes quotes by A.F.E. Smith
#73. Ree flinched as a dozen heads turned her way. She could see how they expected this to go. Either she and the other girl would become great friends and form their own exclusive little circle separate from the rest, or they'd be bitter rivals who constantly vied to beat each other in training. Those were the only two narratives open to her. That was what happened when you were part of a minority: to everyone else, your identity was intimately bound up with the group you belonged to #Quote by A.F.E. Smith
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rachel Caine
#74. Bathroom, maybe? Which is where I need to go."
"Ooh, me, too," Eve said.
The boys rolled their eyes, like they'd planned it.
"What? It's what girls do. Get over it. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gwendoline Christie
#75. I love a challenge. And I love defying limitation, gender stereotypes, and people's expectations of me as an actress. #Quote by Gwendoline Christie
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Meg Kennedy Dugan
#76. Are boys encouraged to express sadness, fear, or anxiety? In general, our society gives boys permission for one emotion: anger. If a boy is hurt or upset, he may be comforted briefly, but then he is told to stop crying and "be a man." This message usually implies he should hide his feelings. Boys and men are supposed to be solid unemotional rocks. Demonstrations of emotions are seen as "silly." Anger is seen as a sign of strength. Males are considered to be standing up for their rights if they react to a frustrating or undesirable event with anger. Outrage is often the only reaction to an injustice that is allowed from boys. #Quote by Meg Kennedy Dugan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Deb Caletti
#77. It can be exhausting eating a meal cooked by a man. With a woman, it's, Ho hum, pass the beans. A guy, you have to act like he just built the Taj Mahal. #Quote by Deb Caletti
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#78. She is a good girl," Park said. "You don't even know her."
His dad was standing, pushing Park toward the door. "Go," he said sternly. "Go play basketball or something."
"Good girls don't dress like boys," his mother said. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Jane Austen
#79. Every body allows that the talent of writing agreeable letters is peculiarly female. #Quote by Jane Austen
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Cordelia Fine
#80. Blatant, intentional discrimination against women is far from being something merely to be read about in history books. #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#81. If we don't place the straitjacket of gender roles on young children, we give them space to reach their full potential. #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#82. Some gender norms are healthy, some are unhealthy - you must wake up from the patriarchal sleep to recognize which is which. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Gender Stereotypes quotes by John L. Esposito
#83. Critical to the fight against global terrorism is an ability to move beyond presuppositions and stereotypes in our attitudes and policies and to form partnerships that transcend an "us" and "them" view of the world. (p. 135) #Quote by John L. Esposito
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Margaret Atwood
#84. Eating is our earliest metaphor, preceding our consciousness of gender difference, race, nationality, and language. We eat before we talk. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Heamin Sunim
#85. When we are comfortable with ourselves and have accepted ourselves wholly, others will find us approachable and will like us for who we are. I wish you could see my true nature. Beyond my body and labels, there is a river of tenderness and vulnerability. Beyond stereotypes and assumptions, there is a valley of openness and authenticity. Beyond memory and ego, there is an ocean of awareness and compassion. #Quote by Heamin Sunim
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Steven Pinker
#86. Even evolutionary explanations of the traditional division of labor by sex do not imply that it is unchangeable, "natural" in the sense of good, or something that should be forced on individual women or men who don't want it. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sendhil Mullainathan
#87. It's 2014, and women are still paid less than men. Does this suggest that a gender pay gap is an unfortunately permanent fixture? Will it still be with us in 50 years? I would predict yes. But by that point, it will be men who will be earning less than women. #Quote by Sendhil Mullainathan
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Laura Bates
#88. Our experiences of all forms of gender prejudice - from daily sexism to distressing harassment to sexual violence - are part of a continuum that impacts all of us, all the time, shaping ourselves, and our ideas about the world. To include stories of assault and rape within a project documenting everyday experiences of gender imbalance is simply to extend its boundaries to the most extreme manifestations of that prejudice. To see how great the damage can become when the minor, "unimportant" issues are allowed to pass without comment. To prove how the steady drip-drip-drip of sexism and sexualization and objectification is connected to the assumption of ownership and control over women's bodies, and how the background noise of harassment and disrespect connects to the assertion of power that is violence and rape. #Quote by Laura Bates
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Jill Soloway
#89. If you go to Europe, public bathrooms have any-gender sink areas and stalls for everyone to use. This is completely reasonable. It potentially involves the destruction of the urinal industry, which I think people would be happy to see go away. #Quote by Jill Soloway
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Eric Ries
#90. I asked all of our recruiters to give me all resumes of prospective employees with their name, gender, place of origin, and age blacked out. This simple change shocked me, because I found myself interviewing different-looking candidates - even though I was 100% convinced that I was not being biased in my resume selection process. #Quote by Eric Ries
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Ivan E. Coyote
#91. I am a rare species, not a stereotype. #Quote by Ivan E. Coyote
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Angelica Hopes
#92. The complex mix of unique people rising from different identities, beliefs, education, gender, upbringing, point of views and ethnicity have unequal sense in their impact in other's status, opportunities, resources, talents, skills and productivity. It is very good to live with cultural humility that complements competency and proficiency." ~ an excerpt from If I Could Tell You #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gina Rippon
#93. Stereotypes could be straitjackening our flexible, plastic brains. So, yes, challenging them does matter. #Quote by Gina Rippon
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Alice Walker
#94. This friendship among women is something Samuel often talks about. Because the women share a husband but the husband does not share their friendships, it makes Samuel uneasy. It is confusing, I suppose. And it is Samuel's duty as a Christian minister to preach the bible's directive of one husband and one wife. Samuel is confused because ti him, since the women are friends and will do anything for one another - not always, but more often than anyone from America would expect - and since they giggle and gossip and nurse each other's children, then they must be happy with things as they are. (Walker 2000: 141) #Quote by Alice Walker
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#95. Girls are weighed down by restrictions, boys with demands - two equally harmful disciplines. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Thomas M. Disch
#96. Gender and the complications it gives rise to simply aren't relevant to the lives appliances lead. #Quote by Thomas M. Disch
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Simon S. Tam
#97. Racism doesn't have to fit our stereotypes for what it is in order for it to hurt - but it also means that tools for dismantling the system don't have it fit our stereotype either. #Quote by Simon S. Tam
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Garrison Keillor
#98. Girls ... were allowed to play in the house ... and boys were sent outdoors ... Boys ran around in the yard with toy guns going kksshh-kksshh, fighting wars for made-up reasons and arguing about who was dead, while girls stayed inside and played with dolls, creating complex family groups and learning how to solve problems through negotiation and roleplaying. Which gender is better equipped, on the whole, to live an adult life, would you guess? #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Embee
#99. What happened to, 'girls on left, boys on right?'" Mr. Bradshaw asked wearily.
Jayden shrugged. "We got bored. Nothing's fun without people of the opposite gender. #Quote by Embee
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Maya Angelou
#100. I wanted to be a woman, but that seemed to me to be a world to which I was to be eternally refused entrance.

What I needed was a boyfriend. A boyfriend would clarify my position to the world and, even more important, to myself. A boyfriend's acceptance of me would guide me into that strange and exotic land of frills and femininity. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Martha Stout
#101. We raise our children, especially girls, to ignore their spontaneious reactions-we teach them not to rock the societal boat ... By the time she is thirty, the valient little girl's "Ick!"-her tendency to respond, to rock the boat, when someone's actions are really mean, may have been exciese from her behavior, and perhaps from her very mind. #Quote by Martha Stout
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Edan Lepucki
#102. Men were stupid to forget what good sleuths women could be. #Quote by Edan Lepucki
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Tennessee Williams
#103. I am not a Polack. People from Poland are Poles, not Polacks. But what I am is one-hundred-per-cent American, born and raised in the greatest country on earth and proud as hell of it, so don't ever call me a Polack. #Quote by Tennessee Williams
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rudy Francisco
#104. I know that our hands break things just as frequent as we can fix them. And we often forget that sexism / is a family heirloom that we've been passing down for generations. As men, it is important that we start asking ourselves / What will the boys learn from us? #Quote by Rudy Francisco
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Aberjhani
#105. Within the universe of the extraordinary, those qualities we designate to human concepts of gender are often shared, exchanged, or even completely obliterated. Because of this mixture of traits, these twins called Genius and Madness often appear to be the same thing. They both have a tendency to blur the lines of what we call norms, or established reality. They both, when we study that grand tapestry known as history and modern-day society, tend to stand out in much bolder relief than other figures.
from Dancing with Madness, Dancing with Genius #Quote by Aberjhani
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Jess C. Scott
#106. Last night I was seriously considering whether I was a bisexual or not but I don't think so though I'm not sure if I'd like to be and argh I don't think there's anything wrong with that, if you like a person, you like the person, not their genitals. #Quote by Jess C. Scott
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Cheryl Anne Gardner
#107. Women have the right to be whatever kind of woman they want to be. Whatever kind of feminist they want to be, or not. I'm a woman writer. Some of my fiction is soft and poetic. Some of my fiction is horrifying and aggressive. My being a woman has no bearing on how I write. Or what I choose to write about. My being a woman is just my gender. It has very little to do with who I am as a person. So don't box me in or tell me how to be GIRL. It's the only thing I've figured out how to do, and I do it my way. #Quote by Cheryl Anne Gardner
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Kristen Schaal
#108. The more women sit down and write something in a woman's voice for a woman, they more you'll see women in comedy because gender doesn't define sense of humor. Imagination and intelligence and perspective do. #Quote by Kristen Schaal
Gender Stereotypes quotes by John Podhoretz
#109. Your race and gender don't change, but you can choose to change your political affiliation at will. #Quote by John Podhoretz
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Judith Butler
#110. To be called a copy, to be called unreal, is thus one way in which one can be oppressed. But consider that it is more fundamental than that. For to be oppressed means that you already exist as a subject of some kind, you are there as the visible and oppressed other for the master subject as a possible or potential subject. But to be unreal is something else again. For to be oppressed one must first become intelligible. To find that one is fundamentally unintelligible (indeed, that the laws of culture and of language find one to be an impossibility) is to find that one has not yet achieved access to the human. It is to find oneself speaking only and always as if one were human, but with the sense that one is not. It is to find that one's language is hollow, and that no recognition is forthcoming because the norms by which recognition takes place are not in one's favour. #Quote by Judith Butler
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Kekla Magoon
#111. People make mistakes. They look at the surface of things and see what they want to. #Quote by Kekla Magoon
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#112. Adding to her frustration was the much more frequent attention being given to her gender. Throughout the twenties, Frances was hailed as "one of the most famous scenario writers" or "highest paid scenarist" and now The Big House was promoted in the Los Angeles Examiner under the headline "Woman Writes Film Plot of Penitentiary. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Tyler Cowen
#113. Often, economists spend their energies squabbling with one another, but arguably the more important contrast is between our broadly liberal economic worldview and the various alternatives - common around the globe - that postulate natural hierarchies of religion, ethnicity, caste and gender, often enforced by law and strict custom. #Quote by Tyler Cowen
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Michael Shermer
#114. According to her data, "no campaigns failed once they'd achieved the active and sustained participation of just 3.5 percent of the population - and lots of them succeeded with far less than that." Further, she notes, "Every single campaign that did surpass that 3.5 percent threshold was a nonviolent one. In fact, campaigns that relied solely on nonviolent methods were on average four times larger than the average violent campaign. And they were often much more representative in terms of gender, age, race, political party, class, and urban-rural distinctions. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Andrej Pejic
#115. All women have a complicated relationship to beauty, but as a transgender woman it's a bit more complicated. There's a lot of pressure to appear feminine. When I was younger, I was most insecure about my size, my angular features, my feet, my hands . At the end of the day, it's about being comfortable in your own skin, and being able to walk down the street and not have people question your gender - and, for me, being perceived as a woman. #Quote by Andrej Pejic
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Paul Mooney
#116. There are still plenty of movie people peddling black stereotypes. I guess Tyler Perry's probably the most massively successful. #Quote by Paul Mooney
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Rita M. Gross
#117. If one does not make an ego out of gender, one would still know whether one is a man or a woman, gay, straight, bisexual, transgender - whatever else we may think of. But those identities need to fit very loosely and be worn very lightly. All sense of privilege or deprivation that has developed around one's gender identity, all rigidity regarding proper roles and behaviors for the various genders, must be cut through. #Quote by Rita M. Gross
Gender Stereotypes quotes by W. J. T. Mitchell
#118. I see stereotypes as fundamental and inescapable and not as something that is ... The kind of common view is "Oh, we shouldn't think in stereotypes," and I think the reality is we can't help but think in stereotypes. #Quote by W. J. T. Mitchell
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Mark Steyn
#119. Universities are no longer institutions of inquiry but 'safe spaces' where delicate flowers of diversity of race, sex, orientation, 'gender fluidity,' and everything else except diversity of thought have to be protected from exposure to any unsafe ideas. #Quote by Mark Steyn
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#120. No matter the species, the deadliest gender is always the female. Men will fight until they die. Women will take it to the grave and then find a way back. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Mata Amritanandamayi
#121. "Is God a Man or a Woman ?"
The answer to this question is neither God is That. But if you must give God a gender,
God is more female than male,
for he is contained in She. #Quote by Mata Amritanandamayi
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Gloria Steinem
#122. A gender-equal society would be one where the word 'gender' does not exist: where everyone can be themselves. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Eddie Izzard
#123. We need to become more open minded to the idea that many of us exist on a spectrum - a continuum - of gender. That for some of us the choice isn't just one or the other - completely male or completely female - but often a combination of both. In fact, it seems there are three different lines on the sexuality spectrum: how you self identify, who you're attracted to, and what you look like. And it seems the dial can be at any place on any of those three lines. #Quote by Eddie Izzard
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Victor Anderson
#124. I see signs of it wherever
racial, gender, sexual, and class identity politics are no longer totalizing but transcended-not negated-in creative exchange with other #Quote by Victor Anderson
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Bell Hooks
#125. Thinking is an action. For all aspiring intellectuals, thoughts are the laboratory where one goes to pose questions and find answers, and the place where visions of theory and praxis come together. The heartbeat of critical thinking is the longing to know - to understand how life works. Children are organically predisposed to be critical thinkers. Across the boundaries of race, class, gender, and circumstance, children come into the world of wonder and language consumed with a desire for knowledge. Sometimes they are so eager for knowledge that they become relentless interrogators - demanding #Quote by Bell Hooks
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Jenny Holzer
#126. Raise boys and girls the same way. #Quote by Jenny Holzer
Gender Stereotypes quotes by Sara Sheridan
#127. It's ridiculous – a girl steps out, goes dancing, gets her hair cut, decides to spend the summer in Italy and it's a scandal. A chap does it and no one bats an eyelid. #Quote by Sara Sheridan
