Gloria Steinem

Gloria Steinem

is an American feminist, journalist, and social and political activist
I didn’t hear words that were accurate, much less prideful. For example, I never once heard the word clitoris. It would be years before I learned that females possessed the only organ in the human body with no function than to feel pleasure. (If such an organ were unique to the male body, can you imagine how much we would hear about it—and what it would be used to justify?)More Gloria Steinem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
If we're isolated, we come to feel powerless when we're not.More Gloria Steinem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What would happen if even one generation were raised with respect and without violence?More Gloria Steinem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[On gender-rating by insurance companies:] They say the reason they get to charge more is we have children. I would say having children is a socially useful act. Being female is not a preexisting condition.More Gloria Steinem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To punish the individual for the sins of the system makes no sense. We're responsible for changing it, yes. But we can't actually invent another universe, so we have to start where we are.More Gloria Steinem quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
