Internalized Sexism quotes by Kathleen Hanna
#1. Internalized sexism that makes us feel like we can't show ourselves not being perfect. #Quote by Kathleen Hanna
Internalized Sexism quotes by Kim Brooks
#2. Feminists frequently debate which elements of systemic and internalized sexism most need to change in order for more women to run for political office or rise to the top of their companies or colonize professions from which they've been historically excluded. Undoubtedly, there are many. But maybe not expecting and encouraging women to worry about every fucking thing that happens in their household might be a solid place to start. #Quote by Kim Brooks
Internalized Sexism quotes by Jean Stafford
#3. It never occurs to her that she will not be a writer and only occasionally does it occur to her, depressingly, that she is going to grow into a woman, not a man. #Quote by Jean Stafford
Internalized Sexism quotes by Bell Hooks
#4. That foundation rested on our critique of what we then called 'the enemy within,' referring to our internalized sexism. We all knew firsthand that we had been socialized as females by patriarchal thinking to see ourselves as inferior to men, to see ourselves as always and only in competition with one another for patriarchal approval, to look upon each other with jealousy, fear, and hatred. Sexist thinking made us judge each other without compassion and punish one another harshly. Feminist thinking helped us unlearn female self-hatred. It enabled us to break free of the hold patriarchal thinking had on our consciousness. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Internalized Sexism quotes by Mackenzi Lee
#5. Every time you rolled your eyes and every little smart remark you made about how silly it was for girls to care about their looks. You refused to let me--or anyone!--like books and silks. Outdoors and cosmetics. You stopped taking me seriously when I stopped being the kind of woman you thought I had to be to be considered intelligent and strong. All those things you say make men take women less seriously--I don't think it's men; it's you. You're not better than any other woman because you like philosophy better than parties and don't give a fig about the company of gentlemen, or because you wear boots instead of heels and don't set your hair in curls. #Quote by Mackenzi Lee
Internalized Sexism quotes by Urvashi Vaid
#6. We call for the end of bigotry as we know it. The end of racism as we know it. The end of child abuse in the family as we know it. The end of sexism as we know it. The end of homophobia as we know it. We stand for freedom as we have yet to know it. And we will not be denied. #Quote by Urvashi Vaid
Internalized Sexism quotes by Safiya Umoja Noble
#7. The implications of such marginalization are profound. The insights about sexist and racist biases... are important because information organizations, from libraries to schools and universities to governmental agencies, are increasingly reliant on being displaced by a variety of web-based "tools" as if there are no political, social, or economic consequences of doing so. #Quote by Safiya Umoja Noble
Internalized Sexism quotes by Paul Hawken
#8. Intelligent policies will be largely self-regulating in the sense that the system of incentives and standards makes it absolutely ludicrous to not move towards clean, internalized systems of cost and production. #Quote by Paul Hawken
Internalized Sexism quotes by Aristophanes
Don't men grow old?
Not like women. When a man comes home
Though he's grey as grief he can always get a girl.
There's no second spring for a woman. None.
She can't recall it, nobody wants her, however
She squanders her time on the promise of oracles,
It's no use ... #Quote by Aristophanes
Internalized Sexism quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#10. Feminists have often highlighted the "otherness" of nonhuman animals while highlighting similarities between women and the men who hold power. Biologically speaking, any two humans will be
more similar than a human and any other species. But the position of most women in patriarchal societies is closer to that of chickens and cows than it is to that of the men who hold power. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Internalized Sexism quotes by Deborah Copaken Kogan
#11. This is what sexism does best: it makes you feel crazy for desiring parity and hopeless about ever achieving it. #Quote by Deborah Copaken Kogan
Internalized Sexism quotes by Holly Bourne
#12. Ethan, you don't need professional help. You just need a wank, and what you really need is to leave me alone forever. #Quote by Holly Bourne
Internalized Sexism quotes by Kay Redfield Jamison
#13. He thought of women in terms of breasts, not minds, and it always seemed to irritate him that most women had both. #Quote by Kay Redfield Jamison
Internalized Sexism quotes by Amy Cuddy
#14. I've been studying sexism for many years, and it's much easier to document the existence of sexism than it is to document the existence of interventions that reduce it. It's really hard to find ways to change the way people see people in different groups. It should be our goal, and we're working for that, but it's hard. #Quote by Amy Cuddy
Internalized Sexism quotes by Bell Hooks
#15. No significant body of feminist writing addresses boys directly, letting them know how they can construct an identity that is not rooted in sexism. There is no body of feminist children's literature that can serve as an alternative to patriarchal perspectives, which abound in the world of children's books. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Internalized Sexism quotes by Margaret Atwood
#16. He's a young man, my own age or a little older, which is young for a man although not for a woman, as at my age a woman is an old maid but a man is not an old bachelor until he's fifty, and even then there's still hope for the ladies, as Mary Whitney used to say. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Internalized Sexism quotes by Dolores Huerta
#17. That's the history of the world. His story is told, hers isn't. #Quote by Dolores Huerta
Internalized Sexism quotes by Ahmed Mostafa
#18. There's something infinitely fascinating or fatal about a woman behind the wheel. #Quote by Ahmed Mostafa
Internalized Sexism quotes by Soraya Chemaly
#19. Women should be angry about the violence and fear that inform so much of our lives. So should men. #Quote by Soraya Chemaly
Internalized Sexism quotes by Natasha Walter
#20. The ease with which prostitution is presented as an acceptable choice for women dismisses the psychological trauma that actually seems to be not the occasional, but the inevitable, result of selling sex. #Quote by Natasha Walter
Internalized Sexism quotes by Fredrik Backman
#21. Maya is silent for a long time, then asks, 'Do you want boys or girls?'

Ana replies as if she's spent her whole life thinking about this, 'Boys.'


'Because the world is kind of shitty toward them sometimes. But it treats us like that nearly all the time. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Internalized Sexism quotes by Ira Levin
#22. Sex, yes; sexism, no. #Quote by Ira Levin
Internalized Sexism quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#23. It is the inextricable masculinity in our idea of government which so revolts at the idea of women as voters. 'To govern:' that means to boss, to control, to have authority; and that only, to most minds. They cannot bear to think of the woman as having control over even their own affairs; to control is masculine, they assume. Seeing only self-interest as a natural impulse, and the ruling powers of the state as a sort of umpire, an authority to preserve the rules of the game while men fight it out forever; they see in a democracy merely a wider range of self interest, a wider, freer field to fight in. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Internalized Sexism quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#24. Now it is easy to perceive that the moral part of love is a factitious sentiment, engendered by society, and cried up by the women with great care and address in order to establish their empire, and secure command to that sex which ought to obey. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Internalized Sexism quotes by David Henry Hwang
#25. Judge: But why would that make it possible for you to fool Monsieur Gallimard? Please
get to the point.
Song: One, because when he finally met his fantasy woman, he wanted more than anything to believe that she was, in fact, a woman. And second, I am an Oriental. And being an Oriental, I could never be completely a man. #Quote by David Henry Hwang
Internalized Sexism quotes by Daniel S. Loeb
#26. I don't remember much about the specifics of the economics courses that I majored in - I apparently internalized the key concepts - but I still remember vividly the thrill of reading 'Don Quixote,' Epictetus, 'The Aeneid,' 'King Lear' and 'Candide,' and how contemporary the stories and ideas in these old and ancient texts struck me. #Quote by Daniel S. Loeb
Internalized Sexism quotes by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
#27. A man hits me--I hit the man a little harder--then he won't do it again.' Unfortunately he did do it again--a little harder still. The effort to hit harder carried on the action and reaction till society, hitting hardest of all, set up a system of legal punishment, of unlimited severity. It imprisoned, it mutilated, it tortured, it killed; it destroyed whole families, and razed contumelious cities to the ground. #Quote by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Internalized Sexism quotes by Warren Farrell
#28. When women criticized men, I called it 'insight' ... When men criticized women, I called it 'sexism' and 'backlash.' #Quote by Warren Farrell
Internalized Sexism quotes by Cary Fukunaga
#29. I have a really good relationship with Focus Features; we had a wonderful time working together on 'Sin Nombre.' #Quote by Cary Fukunaga
Internalized Sexism quotes by Kate Nash
#30. I feel like women, especially in music, aren't really given as much respect as men. Sexism really exists. #Quote by Kate Nash
Internalized Sexism quotes by Millicent Fenwick
#31. Women are on the outside when the door to the smoke-filled room is closed. #Quote by Millicent Fenwick
Internalized Sexism quotes by Anastasia
#32. I refuse to believe all men are pigs and women competing whores.-ANASTASIA #Quote by Anastasia
Internalized Sexism quotes by Shari Graydon
#33. We need an army of white-haired, wild-eyed radicals cutting a swath against the sexism that crosses our paths. It is a good antidote to the larger community's apparent belief that older women are slightly dotty, grandmotherly, benign souls. #Quote by Shari Graydon
Internalized Sexism quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#34. The tracing of a child's lineage and its name with reference to the father, though it has lasted for many thousands of years, has not become any the more natural or reasonable as a result. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Internalized Sexism quotes by Gary L. Francione
#35. Being vegan is easy. Are there social pressures that encourage you to continue to eat, wear, and use animal products? Of course there are. But in a patriarchal, racist, homophobic, and ableist society, there are social pressures to participate and engage in sexism, racism, homophobia, and ableism. At some point, you have to decide who you are and what matters morally to you. And once you decide that you regard victimizing vulnerable nonhumans is not morally acceptable, it is easy to go and stay vegan #Quote by Gary L. Francione
Internalized Sexism quotes by Joycelyn Elders
#36. We have a multiheaded dragon in our midst that for too long has been waging a domestic war on our young, our poor, our elderly, and our underserved. The faces of this dragon sometimes manifest themselves as poverty, the source of the most pervasive health problem we have in America. Sometimes they manifest themselves as diseases such as AIDS, sometimes as violence, and sometimes of racism, sexism, and classism. For too long our "isms" have pushed our young, our poor, and our minorities to the back of the social justice bus. I think it is time for us to ask the question "Do we feel that every American should have a right to health care?" In our society, we feel that every criminal has a right to a lawyer. Shouldn't we feel that every sick person has right to a doctor? #Quote by Joycelyn Elders
Internalized Sexism quotes by Gregory S. Paul
#37. A growing body of social science research reveals that atheists and non-religious people in general, are far from the unsavory beings many assume them to be. On basic questions of morality and human decency - issues such as governmental use of torture, the death penalty, punitive hitting of children, racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, environmental degradation or human rights - the irreligious tend to be more ethical than their religious peers, particularly compared with those who describe themselves as very religious. #Quote by Gregory S. Paul
Internalized Sexism quotes by Florence King
#38. There is more sexism in a year's worth of movies than actually exists in a woman's entire lifetime. #Quote by Florence King
Internalized Sexism quotes by David Janzen
#39. Renunciation of many good things is needed to break our bondage to the fragmenting forces of our society, which most of us have internalized, as if busyness on many fronts were a virtue instead of a vice. #Quote by David Janzen
Internalized Sexism quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#40. Forget race, forget gender, forget religion, and become a human my friend. Become a human above everything else, and all great things shall follow. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Internalized Sexism quotes by Sarah Kendzior
#41. In the American media, white people debate whether race matters, rich people debate whether poverty matters, and men debate whether gender matters. People for whom these problems must matter -- for they structure the limitations of their lives -- are locked out of the discussion. #Quote by Sarah Kendzior
Internalized Sexism quotes by Paloma Faith
#42. You know, my mum's always encouraged me and never made my gender an issue, I guess. She brought me up to believe in equality, as opposed to feminism or sexism - so it just meant that my gender was not relevant to what I was capable of achieving. #Quote by Paloma Faith
Internalized Sexism quotes by Derrick Jensen
#43. I am in this same river. I can't much help it. I admit it: I'm racist. The other night I saw a group (or maybe a pack?) or white teenagers standing in a vacant lot, clustered around a 4x4, and I crossed the street to avoid them; had they been black, I probably would have taken another street entirely. And I'm misogynistic. I admit that, too. I'm a shitty cook, and a worse house cleaner, probably in great measure because I've internalized the notion that these are woman's work. Of course, I never admit that's why I don't do them: I always say I just don't much enjoy those activities (which is true enough; and it's true enough also that many women don't enjoy them either), and in any case, I've got better things to do, like write books and teach classes where I feel morally superior to pimps. And naturally I value money over life. Why else would I own a computer with a hard drive put together in Thailand by women dying of job-induced cancer? Why else would I own shirts mad in a sweatshop in Bangladesh, and shoes put together in Mexico? The truth is that, although many of my best friends are people of color (as the cliche goes), and other of my best friends are women, I am part of this river: I benefit from the exploitation of others, and I do not much want to sacrifice this privilege. I am, after all, civilized, and have gained a taste for "comforts and elegancies" which can be gained only through the coercion of slavery. The truth is that like most others who benefit from this #Quote by Derrick Jensen
Internalized Sexism quotes by Laura Bates
#44. The very fact that it is necessary in the twenty-first century to explain why it's not okay to publicly debate whether or not women are "asking" for sexual assault is mind-boggling. #Quote by Laura Bates
Internalized Sexism quotes by Victor S. Navasky
#45. These days, especially when cartoons deal with such matters as sex, sexism, sexual orientation, race, racism, religion, and religious fundamentalism, they can evoke primal responses. When that happens, while the viewer may denounce the cartoon, the irony here, as was the case with David Levine, is that it is precisely because the caricature has artistic depth and merit that the outrage is so keenly felt. The more powerful the caricature, the more outraged the protest. #Quote by Victor S. Navasky
Internalized Sexism quotes by Tina Fey
#46. In 1995, each cast at The Second City was made up of four men and two women. When it was suggested that they switch one of the companies to three men and three women, the producers and directors had the same panicked reaction. 'You can't do that. There won't be enough parts to go around. There won't be enough for the girls.' This made no sense to me, probably because I speak English and have never had a head injury. We weren't doing _Death of a Salesman._ _We were making up the show ourselves. How could there not be enough parts?_ If everyone had something to contribute, there would be enough. The insulting implication, of course, was that the women wouldn't have any ideas. #Quote by Tina Fey
Internalized Sexism quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#47. We live in a world where sports have the potential to bridge the gap between racism, sexism and discrimination. The 2012 Olympic Games was a great start but hopefully what these games taught us is that if women are given an opportunity on an equal playing field the possibilities for women are endless. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Internalized Sexism quotes by Sarah Vowell
#48. I adore these words, worship them actually, and yet I do not buy that part about 'the last time in history.' Because the narrator himself is having such a wondrous moment; because every American who comes to love this lovable, hateful place knows this wonder, too. Because screeching the brakes on my rental bike and watching a turtle that is who knows how old creep across the wilderness of palm fronds that juts against such a painfully cute subset of civilization, I know exactly why the painfully cute civilization wants to be here, build here, make their homes and babies at such a place. So what if they got it wrong? Is there anything more American than constructing some squeaky-clean city on a hill looking out across the terrible beauty of this land? While most of the rest of us have internalized these impulses, turned them into metaphors, at Celebration, Disney is attempting the real deal; like the Puritans and the pioneers, they're carving out a new community. An eerie, xenophobic, nostalgic community I can't wait to leave, but still. #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Internalized Sexism quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#49. Unfortunately, a lot of fantasy is chock full of sexism and racism. A lot of authors don't even realize they're doing it, and a lot of readers don't know they're reading it. That's what makes it so scary in some cases. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Internalized Sexism quotes by Mindy Kaling
#50. And when had a critical eye ever helped me, really? Nobody likes the girl who points out all the inherent sexism on The Bachelor. But people are charmed byt the girl kvelling about nail art, boba tea, and the homeopathic benefits of ayahuasca. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Internalized Sexism quotes by Anne Carson
#51. Madness and witchery as well as bestiality are conditions commonly associated with the use of the female voice in public. #Quote by Anne Carson
Internalized Sexism quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#52. Love is an awfully personal thing for most of us, so why isn't hate? #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Internalized Sexism quotes by Anon1467
#53. Anonymous is not a group, you don't have to be able to hack, Just believe in the right thing, equality, Human rights, against racism, sexism, agism and more, you can just protest to be an anon. You don't have to be able to hack. #Quote by Anon1467
