Gender Studies quotes by Danielle Henderson
#1. Normally when I tell people I'm a gender studies major, they look at me like I'm studying Sanskrit or Latin. But now, NOW I had something to show my family, to possibly convince them that one day I would be employable. Look! People still like feminism! Or maybe they just really like Ryan Gosling's face. But they're getting that face with a dose of feminism! Like it or not. #Quote by Danielle Henderson
Gender Studies quotes by Sarah B. Pomeroy
#2. Misogyny was born of fear of women. #Quote by Sarah B. Pomeroy
Gender Studies quotes by Julie Zeilinger
#3. But somehow things took a sinister turn, and the division of labor came to be understood as the demarcation of a social hierarchy. Women kept busy with numerous domestic responsibilities while their male counterparts' sole duty was tending to the flocks. Men had time to think critically, form political infrastructures, and ultimately, network with other men. Meanwhile, women were kept too busy to notice that somewhere along the line, they had become inferior. This is approximately when shit hit the fan. #Quote by Julie Zeilinger
Gender Studies quotes by Christina Lauren
#4. Men date younger women all the time and get a pat on the back. Why does dating a younger guy automatically make me a cougar? #Quote by Christina Lauren
Gender Studies quotes by Christina Lauren
#5. Why are we always expected to share the picture of us with our boobs out on the beach, but dudes can share the candid one with their slobbery dog? #Quote by Christina Lauren
Gender Studies quotes by Cordelia Fine
#6. With a particular person in mind, or in anticipation of interacting with them, self-conception adjusts to create a shared reality. This means that when their perception of you is stereotypical, your own mind follows suit. For example, [Princeton University psychologist Stacey] Sinclair manipulated one group of women into thinking that they were about to spend some time with a charmingly sexist man. (Not a woman-hater, but the kind of man who thinks that women deserve to be cherished and protected by men, while being rather less enthusiastic about them being too confident and assertive.)
Obligingly, the women socially tuned their view of themselves to better match these traditional opinions. They regarded themselves as more stereotypically feminine, compared with another group of women who were expecting instead to interact with a man with a more modern view of their sex. Interestingly, this social tuning only seems to happen when there is some sort of motivation for a good relationship. This suggests that close or powerful others in your life may be especially likely to act as a mirror in which you perceive your own qualities. (...)
No doubt the female self and the male self can be as useful as any other social identity in the right circumstances. But flexible, context-sensitive, and useful is not the same as "hardwired". #Quote by Cordelia Fine
Gender Studies quotes by Sam Killermann
#7. Gender is like a Rubik's Cube with one hundred squares per side, and every time you twist it to take a look at another angle, you make it that much harder a puzzle to solve. #Quote by Sam Killermann
Gender Studies quotes by Xaviera Hollander
#8. Women will cut men a lot of slack for sins made in the name of their beauty. #Quote by Xaviera Hollander
Gender Studies quotes by Karen Barad
#9. This book is about entanglements. To be entangled is not simply to be intertwined with another, as in the joining of separate entities, but to lack an independent, self-contained existence. Existence is not an individual affair. Individuals do not preexist their interactions; rather, individuals emerge through and as pare of their entangled intra-relating . Which is not to say that emergence happens once and for all, as an event or as a process that takes place according to some external measure of space and of time, but rather that time and space, like matter and meaning, come into existence, are iteratively recon figured through each intra-action, there by making it impossible to differentiate in any absolute sense between creation and renewal, beginning and returning, continuity and discontinuity, here and there, past and future. #Quote by Karen Barad
Gender Studies quotes by Marguerite Higgins
#10. A military situation at its worst can inspire fighting men to perform at their best. #Quote by Marguerite Higgins
Gender Studies quotes by Mya Robarts
#11. I would never put the words 'rape ' and 'play ' in the same sentence. I there's rape, there's no play, " he says. #Quote by Mya Robarts
Gender Studies quotes by Warren Farrell
#12. So one of my core themes in The Myth of Male Power - that history's controlling force was not patriarchy, but survival - is still ignored. Instead, the leading universities' women's studies and "gender studies" courses still emanate from the Marxist and Civil Rights model of oppressor vs. oppressed. We'll see in this book exactly why the dichotomy of oppressor/oppressed is both inaccurate and, more important, undermines love and women's empowerment. In virtually every leading university this leads to a demonizing of men and masculinity that distorts the very essence of traditional masculinity - being socialized to be a hero by being willing to sacrifice oneself in war or in work. The possibility that being socialized to be disposable is not genuine power is, to this day, either considered radical, heretical, or, most frequently, not considered. #Quote by Warren Farrell
Gender Studies quotes by Amanda Sinclair
#13. Critical and feminist theorists show that most leadership research, including studies of transformational leadership, continue to present prescriptions - heroic or post-heroic - as if they were gender neutral. The critics argue that, although there is a search for a different kind of leader- a 'post-heroic hero' who displays characteristics different from the traditional model - even this leader continues 'to enjoy the same godlike reverence for individualism associated with traditional models'. #Quote by Amanda Sinclair
Gender Studies quotes by Lillian Faderman
#14. Education continued to come under particularly strong fire ... : If women learned how to manage in the world as well as men, if they learned about history and politics and studied for a profession, of course they would soon be demanding a voice and a role outside the home. The medical doctors soon discovered that education was dangerous to a female's health. #Quote by Lillian Faderman
Gender Studies quotes by Lili Boisvert
#15. Studies have shown a woman looking for a
'sense of humour' wants a man who
makes jokes and who likes to laugh.
A man looking for the same quality in a
woman does not expect her to be funny;
rather, he wants her to laugh at his jokes. #Quote by Lili Boisvert
Gender Studies quotes by Christina Lauren
#16. Me? I was obsessed with serial killers. More specifically, I was obsessed with the idea of female serial killers. Hear the phrase serial killer, and most of us probably picture a man. It's not surprising - let's be real, men are responsible for at least ninety-two percent of the evil in the world. For centuries, women have been socially programmed to be the nurturers, after all - the protectors, the emotional bridges - so when we hear of a woman who takes life instead of creating it, it's instinctively shocking. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Gender Studies quotes by Judith Butler
#17. 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 Studies quotes by Betty Friedan
#18. The feminists had destroyed the old image of woman, but they could not erase the hostility, the prejudice, the discrimination that still remained. #Quote by Betty Friedan
Gender Studies quotes by Judith Butler
#19. I'm no great fan of the phallus, and have made my own views known on this subject before, so I do not propose a return to a notion of the phallus as the third term in any and all relations of desire. #Quote by Judith Butler
Gender Studies quotes by Anthony Stevens
#20. The specious idea that gender differences are due entirely to culture, and have nothing to do with biological or archetypal predispositions, still enjoys wide currency in our society, yet it rests on the discredited tabula rasa theory of human development and is at variance with the overwhelming mass of anthropological and scientific evidence. #Quote by Anthony Stevens
Gender Studies quotes by Anne Wagener
#21. I imagine the field day we'd have with this in gender studies class. Our desks in a circle, we'd huddle forward and rant: So this is the baseline of femininity. The place where being bestowed certain chromosomes will ultimately take you. This is the dream that's been pounded into us. Find the guy. Find the dress. Or hell, maybe the other way around. The Disney Princesses told us so. But this isn't college. This is my job. #Quote by Anne Wagener
Gender Studies quotes by Simon Newcomb
#22. What we now call school training, the pursuit of fixed studies at stated hours under the constant guidance of a teacher, I could scarcely be said to have enjoyed. #Quote by Simon Newcomb
Gender Studies quotes by Suzanne Enoch
#23. He sighed. "You've chosen poorly, you know. When we return to England you'll be celebrated, just as I will be. If you've decided to abandon me, you might have netted someone titled, someone with enough wealth to see you esteemed and me able to continue my botanical studies. That would have been the aim of a dutiful daughter."
"I'm not abandoning you, and I chose Shaw. You're the one who declined to attend your daughter's wedding."
"You never used to speak to me like this. A dutiful child would never have accepted a proposal from the first man who asked, simply because he did ask."
"He didn't propose to me. I proposed to him."
Finally he looked more surprised than angry and frustrated. "You proposed to him?"
"Yes, because I didn't think he believed me when I said that I loved him. I can hardly blame him, since I had to think about it for an entire day after he said it to me, but I do love him. More than I can articulate to you. #Quote by Suzanne Enoch
Gender Studies quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#24. I'm manifestly not the same as Alex Salmond. I'm a different gender, for example ... I'm being flippant, but maybe this is a partly gender-driven difference: I'm very keen that we find a way of reaching out across party divides to find things we agree on, as well as the things we disagree on. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Gender Studies quotes by Zainab Salbi
#25. I believe that a lot of progress has been achieved to address gender inequality: We have moved from a time where women in the US could not apply for credit card without their husband's signature to a time where women are the owners of their businesses. #Quote by Zainab Salbi
Gender Studies quotes by Michelle Bachelet
#26. U.N. Women was created due to the acknowledgement that gender equality and women's empowerment was still, despite progress, far from what it should be. Transforming political will and decisions, such as the Member States creating U.N. Women, into concrete steps towards gender equality and women's empowerment, I think is one of the main challenges. #Quote by Michelle Bachelet
Gender Studies quotes by Anonymous
#27. Wine and women make wise men dote and forsake God's law and do wrong.
However, the fault is not in the wine, and often not in the woman. The fault is in the one who misuses the wine or the woman or other of God's crations. Even if you get drunk on the wine and through this greed you lapse into lechery, the wine is not to blame but you are, in being unable or unwilling to discipline yourself. And even if you look at a woman and become caught up in her beauty and assent to sin [= adultery; extramarital sex], the woman is not to blame nor is the beauty given her by God to be disparaged: rather, you are to blame for not keeping your heart more clear of wicked thoughts ... If you feel yourself tempted by the sight of a woman, control your gaze better ... You are free to leave her. Nothing constrains you to commit lechery but your own lecherous heart. #Quote by Anonymous
Gender Studies quotes by Matthieu Ricard
#28. We find that the optimists have an undeniable advantage over the pessimists. Many studies show that they do better on exams, in their chosen profession, and in their relationships, live longer and in better health, enjoy a better chance of surviving postoperative shock, and are less prone to depression and suicide. #Quote by Matthieu Ricard
Gender Studies quotes by Susie Bright
#29. I see the effects of sexual and gender liberation all around me, just like you do, but I don't have a sense of being in the majority. #Quote by Susie Bright
Gender Studies quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof
#30. Most studies find that each murder in America leads to costs of between $10 million and $12 million, including police and prison bills and social services for families of victims and perpetrators. The University of Chicago Crime Lab calculates that gun violence costs every Chicago household about $2,500 a year. Crime #Quote by Nicholas D. Kristof
Gender Studies quotes by Charlotte Whitton
#31. 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 Studies quotes by Jerusha Hess
#32. I never think that being a woman is so hard. Maybe don't think about your gender and be confident as you go forward rather than try to single yourself out as some underserved part of filmmaking. #Quote by Jerusha Hess
Gender Studies quotes by Gloria Steinem
#33. No wonder studies show that women's intellectual self-esteem tends to go down as years of education go up. We have been studying our own absence. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Gender Studies quotes by Kate Bornstein
#34. My own take on the word "transgender" is that it's an umbrella term for anyone who breaks any rules, laws, guidelines or protocol of gender. So, to really be an ally, it's important that you recognize and embrace your own transgender nature. Really, I haven't met a single person who doesn't break some rule of gender. In other words, we will assimilate you. Resistance is futile. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Gender Studies quotes by Rebecca Traister
#35. Cities allow us to extract some of the transactional services that were assumed to be an integral, gendered aspect of traditional marriage and enjoy them as actual transactional service, for which we pay. This dynamic also permits women to function in the world in a way that was once impossible, with the city serving as spouse and, sometimes, true love. #Quote by Rebecca Traister
Gender Studies quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#36. Crime does not decrease in proportion to the severest punishment. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Gender Studies quotes by Seneca
#37. The day will come when studies pursued over many centuries will reveal in all clarity things that are now hidden, and posterity will be astonished that we had failed to grasp these truths. #Quote by Seneca
Gender Studies quotes by Charles D'Ambrosio
#38. A good haunted house is about the utter collapse of our accidental differences, the uselessness of class, of gender, of education, of personal history, of all the distinctions we cobble together and call the self. Late enough at night none of this stuff protects you, not from the boogeyman. What's haunted or, more accurately, what's uncovered by terror, is the poor forked thing, and the agon of a haunted house isn't between God and Satan, or the righteous and the sinners, but rather between the self and annihilation. #Quote by Charles D'Ambrosio
Gender Studies quotes by Ann Leckie
#39. The kind of place," I said, still safely in linguistic territory that needed no gender marking, "that will rent me a sledge and sell me a hypothermia kit. How much? #Quote by Ann Leckie
Gender Studies quotes by Chanda Stafford
#40. It's not the gender that matters, you know that. It's the soul inside that counts. #Quote by Chanda Stafford
Gender Studies quotes by Ray Hagen
#41. A point often ignored in cinema history studies of [Bette] Davis," wrote Jim Parish and Don Stanke years later of Housewife, "is that Ann Dvorak, who plays the film's title role, was established as a strong dramatic actress long before Bette, and it was she who set the standard for battling with the studio for better roles. In her quiet performance as Nan Wilson Reynolds, it is Miss Dvorak and not the already mannered Bette, who woos the audience's attention and affection. It is Dvorak who provides the proper artistic control for the feature…" The big difference between the two actresses was maturity. Bette, in these early movies, was very rough around the gills; she became polished, but always tended to slip into campy tirades. Dvorak was a natural; she was intense, but always in control, even in highly emotional situations. #Quote by Ray Hagen
Gender Studies quotes by Kathy Acker
#42. We don't have a clue what it is to be male or female, or if there are intermediate genders. Male and female might be fields which overlap into androgyny or different kinds of sexual desires. But because we live in a Western, patriarchal world, we have very little chance of exploring these gender possibilities. #Quote by Kathy Acker
Gender Studies quotes by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
#43. Any true definition of preaching must say that that man is there to deliver the message of God, a message from God to those people. If you prefer the language of Paul, he is 'an ambassador for Christ'. That is what he is. He has been sent, he is a commissioned person, and he is standing there as the mouthpiece of God and of Christ to address these people. In other words he is not there merely to talk to them, he is not there to entertain them. He is there - and I want to emphasize this - to do something to those people; he is there to produce results of various kinds, he is there to influence people. He is not merely to influence a part of them; he is not only to influence their minds, not only their emotions, or merely to bring pressure to bear upon their wills and to induce them to some kind of activity. He is there to deal with the whole person; and his preaching is meant to affect the whole person at the very centre of life. Preaching should make such a difference to a man who is listening that he is never the same again. Preaching, in other words, is a transaction between the preacher and the listener. It does something for the soul of man, for the whole of the person, the entire man; it deals with him in a vital and radical manner.

I remember a remark made to me a few years back about some studies of mine on "The Sermon on the Mount." I had deliberately published them in sermonic form. There were many who advised me not to do that on the grounds that people n #Quote by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Gender Studies quotes by William Keepin
#44. We became acutely aware of the profound healing that is needed in our species. We knew with conviction that what we were doing, as women and men together, was confronting the cultural dynamics that are killing us all- killing women and men, killing our children, killing the planet. #Quote by William Keepin
Gender Studies quotes by Kate Bornstein
#45. Let's stop pretending that we have all the answers, because when it comes to gender, none of us is fucking omniscient. #Quote by Kate Bornstein
Gender Studies quotes by Helen Keller
#46. I began my studies with eagerness. Before me I saw a new world opening in beauty and light, and I felt within me the capacity to know all things. In the wonderland of Mind I should be as free as another [with sight and hearing]. Its people, scenery, manners, joys, and tragedies should be living tangible interpreters of the real world. The lecture halls seemed filled with the spirit of the great and wise, and I thought the professors were the embodiment of wisdom... But I soon discovered that college was not quite the romantic lyceum I had imagined. Many of the dreams that had delighted my young inexperience became beautifully less and "faded into the light of common day." Gradually I began to find that there were disadvantages in going to college. The one I felt and still feel most is lack of time. I used to have time to think, to reflect, my mind and I. We would sit together of an evening and listen to the inner melodies of the spirit, which one hears only in leisure moments when the words of some loved poet touch a deep, sweet chord in the soul that until then had been silent. But in college there is no time to commune with one's thoughts. One goes to college to learn, it seems, not to think. When one enters the portals of learning, one leaves the dearest pleasures – solitude, books and imagination – outside with the whispering pines. I suppose I ought to find some comfort in the thought that I am laying up treasures for future enjoyment, but I am improvident enough to pref #Quote by Helen Keller

#47. I was really into my studies and wanted to be a doctor. #Quote by Ieva Laguna
Gender Studies quotes by Three Initiates
#48. The latest word of science is that the atom is composed of a multitude of corpuscles, electrons, or ions (the various names being applied by different authorities) revolving around each other and vibrating at a high degree and intensity. But the accompanying statement is made that the formation of the atom is really due to the clustering of negative corpuscles around a positive one - the positive corpuscles seeming to exert a certain influence upon the negative corpuscles, causing the latter to assume certain combinations and thus "create" or "generate" an atom. This is in line with the most ancient Hermetic Teachings, which have always identified the Masculine principle of Gender with the "Positive," and the Feminine with the "Negative" Poles of Electricity (so-called). #Quote by Three Initiates
Gender Studies quotes by Judith Lewis Herman
#49. It has become clear that, as Janet observed one hundred years ago, dissociation lies at the heart of the traumatic stress disorders. Studies of survivors of disasters, terrorist attacks, and combat have demonstrated that people who enter a dissociative state at the time of the traumatic event are among most likely to develop long-lasting PTSD. #Quote by Judith Lewis Herman
Gender Studies quotes by Jean Webster
#50. That is - you are not to thank him for the money; he doesn't care to have that mentioned, but you are to write a letter telling of the progress in your studies and the details of your daily life. #Quote by Jean Webster
Gender Studies quotes by Kyriacos C. Markides
#51. Texts like the Bible and the works of the holy elders were written under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The person who studies them partakes of this Divine Grace in a mystical way. The soul is nourished with Grace even if the person who reads such literature does not understand the meaning of what is being read. "Just by reading this material," he claimed, "the individual becomes spiritually empowered by the Grace embedded in the words themselves. #Quote by Kyriacos C. Markides
Gender Studies quotes by Penn Jillette
#52. Has any non-dipshit man ever used the word "ladies" not followed by the word "room"? #Quote by Penn Jillette
Gender Studies quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#53. Even healthy families need outside sources of moral guidance to keep those tensions from imploding
and this means, among other things, a public philosophy of gender equality and concern for child welfare. When instead the larger culture aggrandizes wife beaters, degrades women or nods approvingly at child slappers, the family gets a little more dangerous for everyone, and so, inevitably, does the larger world. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Gender Studies quotes by Shamir
#54. I had always been a really peculiar child. My mom would tell you I grew up roughing it with the boys and playing with action figures and toy cars and stuff, but I also had an Easy Bake Oven ... I find it amazing that in a really weird way, people are mad that they can't figure out my gender. #Quote by Shamir
Gender Studies quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#55. In youth he had felt the hidden beauty and ecstasy of things, and had been a poet; but poverty and sorrow and exile had turned his gaze in darker directions, and he had thrilled at the imputations of evil in the world around. Daily life had for him come to be a phantasmagoria of macabre shadow-studies; now glittering and leering with concealed rottenness as in Beardsley's best manner, now hinting terrors behind the commonest shapes and objects as in the subtler and less obvious work of Gustave Dore. He would often regard it as merciful that most persons of high Intelligence jeer at the inmost mysteries; for, he argued, if superior minds were ever placed in fullest contact with the secrets preserved by ancient and lowly cults, the resultant abnormalities would soon not only wreck the world, but threaten the very integrity of the universe. All this reflection was no doubt morbid, but keen logic and a deep sense of humour ably offset it. Malone was satisfied to let his notions remain as half-spied and forbidden visions to be lightly played with; and hysteria came only when duty flung him into a hell of revelation too sudden and insidious to escape. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Gender Studies quotes by Sarah  Cooper
#56. 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 Studies quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#57. Almost all had ill-grown mustaches and sported pinkish sun-bleached sandals meant for some nonexistent third gender, along with buzz haircuts that spoke of either nationalism or retardation. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Gender Studies quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#58. What if, in raising children, we focus on ability instead of gender? What if we focus on interest instead of gender? #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Gender Studies quotes by Peter York
#59. This may sound insulting to some of my cult studies friends, but there's a lot of cult studies people who ignore, shall we say, the wider canvas - because they simply don't know about its existence or they don't know how it operates. #Quote by Peter York
Gender Studies quotes by Donna J. Haraway
#60. Grammar is politics by other means. #Quote by Donna J. Haraway
Gender Studies quotes by Charles Duhigg
#61. Researchers have found similar dynamics in dozens of other settings, including individuals' lives. Take, for instance, studies from the past decade examining the impacts of exercise on daily routines.4.10 When people start habitually exercising, even as infrequently as once a week, they start changing other, unrelated patterns in their lives, often unknowingly. #Quote by Charles Duhigg
Gender Studies quotes by Jack McDevitt
#62. There'd been studies over the years supporting the proposition that groups composed exclusively of women usually made intelligent decisions, that exclusively male groups did a bit less well, and that mixed groups did most poorly of all, by a substantial margin. It appeared that, when women were present, testosterone got the upper hand and men took greater risks than they might otherwise. Correspondingly, women in the mixed group tended to revert to roles, becoming more passive, and going along with whatever misjudgment the males might perpetrate. #Quote by Jack McDevitt
Gender Studies quotes by David Christian
#63. Big History studies the history of everything, offering a way of making sense of our world and our role within it. #Quote by David Christian
Gender Studies quotes by Peter Scazzero
#64. The problem, however, is that you inevitably find, as I did, something still missing. In fact, the spirituality of most current discipleship models often only adds an additional protective layer against people growing up emotionally. When people have authentic spiritual experiences -- such as worship, prayer, Bible studies, and fellowship -- they mistakenly believe they are doing fine, even if their relational life is fractured and their interior world is disordered. Their apparent 'progress' then provides a spiritual reason for not doing the hard work of maturing. They are deceived. I know. I lived that way for almost seventeen years. Because of the spiritual growth in certain areas of my life and in those around me, I ignored the glaring signs of emotional immaturity that were everywhere in and around me. #Quote by Peter Scazzero
