"Feminism has its roots in Liberalism"

Susan Moller Okin

 

"Man kommt sich auf dem Gebiete der Frauenfrage immer wie ein Wiederkäuer vor"

Hedwig Dohm

 

“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.”

Marie Shear

 

“Once men realize that they are also deprived — not as much as women, just as whites are not as deprived as blacks — but there is a full circle of human qualities we all have a right to. And they're confined to the "masculine" ones, which are seventy percent of all of them, and we're confined to the "feminine" ones, which are thirty percent. We're missing more, but they're still missing a lot. If a man fights to be his whole self, to be creative, to express emotions men are not supposed to express, do jobs men are not supposed to do, take care of his own children — all of these things are part of the feminist movement.”

Gloria Steinem, in an interview with Marianne Schnall (3 April 1995)

 

“When men imagine a female uprising, they imagine a world in which women rule men as men have ruled women.”

Sally Kempton, as quoted in Notes for Participants, National Forensic League's Lincoln-Douglas Debate on Feminism and Gender Equality (November 11, 1995) by Twiss Butler, National Organization for Women

 

"Ständig wird gesagt, der Feminismus sei überflüssig, weil die Frauen ja schon alles erreicht hätten, dabei braucht man sich nur anzuschauen, wieviel Prozent des Vermögens der Welt in weiblicher Hand ist. Nämlich genau 1 Prozent. Das ist ein Witz. Und dann muß man sich auch noch dafür rechtfertigen, daß man eine Emanze ist. Als ob man überhaupt etwas anderes sein könnte!"

Jelinek, Elfriede

 

"…in der Politik wurde ich zwangsläufig zur Feministin“
