Erotica is using a feather, pornography is using the whole chicken.More Isabel Allende [08/19/2010 12:08:00]
Feminism is dated? Yes, for privileged women like my daughter and all of us here today, but not for most of our sisters in the rest of the world who are still forced into premature marriage, prostitution, forced labor - they have children that they don't want or they cannot feed.More Isabel Allende [08/19/2010 12:08:00]

I can promise you that women working together - linked, informed and educated - can bring peace and prosperity to this forsaken planet.More Isabel Allende [08/19/2010 12:08:00]

What I fear most is power with impunity. I fear abuse of power, and the power to abuse.More Isabel Allende [08/19/2010 12:08:00]
The poor do not need charity, they need justice.More Isabel Allende [09/03/2016 09:09:57]

Giving women education, work, the ability to control their own income, inherit and own property, benefits the society. If a woman is empowered, her children and her family will be better off. If families prosper, the village prospers, and eventually so does the whole country.More Isabel Allende [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I have more freedom when I write fiction, but my memoirs have had a much stronger impact on my readers. Somehow the 'message,' even if I am not even aware that there is one, is conveyed better in this form.More Isabel Allende [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I am an American citizen and it is my home now. I like the U.S.A., which is not a place too many people have liked since Bush. The U.S. has a young population, and everything can change within a year.More Isabel Allende [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Women have always been courageous... They are always fearless when protecting their children and in the last century they have been fearless in the fight for their rights.More Isabel Allende [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
