feminism

I hate discussions of feminism that end up with who does the dishes, she said. So do I. But at the end, there are always the damned dishes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I wasn’t trying to whap anybody over the head with my own politics or my own beliefs, … But I do think there are many social critics on the right who’ve made great careers for themselves going around the country telling women to stay home. … There’s a romanticism about motherhood, that you can drop out of the cold, hard male world of working, and get that brass ring of motherhood … but I think that what feminism fought for was every woman to do what she wanted to. The message increasingly is that you can have one or the other, but not both. And men, well, they get both.More [07/23/2007 12:07:00]
And the first commandment of feminism is: I am woman; thou shalt not tolerate strange gods who assert that women have capabilities or often choose roles that are different from men's.More [03/23/2008 12:03:00]
One of the greatest gifts of Black feminism to ourselves has been to make it a little easier simply to be Black and female.More [03/25/2008 12:03:00]
Bill Hooper:
I decided they really piss me off, women.



Roger Miles:
What do you mean?



Bill Hooper:
What? All this relating. Relationships. Inter-relating.



Roger Miles:
That's what they're good at.



Bill Hooper:
Oh, don't get me wrong, I always endorsed all that. I used to argue Feminism against women. I was such a good boy, you know. I even joined the men's group once. God, that was really depressing. Endless whingeing. It's not like the women's group, they enjoy themselves. They used to meet at our flat. I used to hear them haranging one another or roaring with laughter while I was making the bloody tea. I really envied them. I knew at the time they were right to be angry. They were absolutely justified, never disputed that for a moment. All the same, they really pissed me off.

First I would probably place men at the bottom of the food chain. On a grander scale, I would say they're reacting to change. Feminism has got to be part of that.More [07/28/2011 06:07:40]
What, do you think that feminism means you hate men?More [07/30/2011 11:07:01]
It's tragic when people think feminism is a dirty word.More [08/22/2011 06:08:20]

The word feminism has negative connotations for men. Rather, we are wanting to celebrate females and their confidence. There is no political agenda behind my work. I'm just trying to make music that makes me feel good and confident. We've got a cool message.More [10/03/2011 11:10:24]
The young women in my classes are feisty and clever and believe, often with the passion of youthful optimism, that feminism is a battle already won.More [10/21/2011 09:10:08]
I had assumed young women knew the history of feminism and must have felt gratitude to the movement for the opportunities that the work we have done has afforded them.More [10/24/2011 09:10:09]
Until women learn to want economic independence, and until they work out a way to get this independence without denying themselves the joys of love and motherhood, it seems to me feminism has no roots.More [04/25/2012 03:04:24]
We've all been called man-haters. There was one point in my career, also, where I realized a certain breed of critic would project a sinister breed of feminism on everything I did.More [09/04/2013 06:09:15]
He travels fastest who travels alone, and that goes double for she. Real feminism is spinsterhood.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I am trying to make art that relates to the deepest and most mythic concerns of human kind and I believe that, at this moment of history, feminism is humanism.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don't want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous 'girl power' sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it's a way of taking the politics out of feminism and making it some kind of fashion.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The left ask people to believe that there is no conflict between feminism and the family.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Whatever feminists may say about their only advocating choices, everyone knows the truth: Feminism regards work outside the home as more elevating, honorable, and personally productive than full-time mothering and making a home.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Obviously, the anti-ERA people are tickled about my ordeal because it proves that the ERA breaks up families. When they point out that feminism is a dangerous thing, I just say marriage is pretty precarious too.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
I'm appalled the word feminism has been denigrated to a place of almost ridicule and I very passionately believe the word needs to be revalued and reintroduced with power and understanding that this is a global picture.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

I was trying to uphold what I thought feminism was as best I could by supporting women, by trying to create an opportunity to get women to get together, play music together and celebrate the fact that we are having great success making music on our own and together.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Feminism is a socialist, anti-family, political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Feminism is a word that I identify with. The term has become synonymous with vitriolic man-hating but it needs to come back to a place where both men and women can embrace it. It is particularly important for women in developing countries.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Feminism is the radical notion that women are peopleMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We have to be careful in this era of radical feminism, not to emphasize an equality of the sexes that leads women to imitate men to prove their equality. To be equal does not mean you have to be the same.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Feminism is sort of like God. Many people profess to believe in it, but no one seems to be able to define it to everyone's satisfaction.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It's important to remember that feminism is no longer a group of organizations or leaders. It's the expectations that parents have for their daughters, and their sons, too. It's the way we talk about and treat one another. It's who makes the money and who makes the compromises and who makes the dinner. It's a state of mind. It's the way we live now.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feminism - the word - can give us a handle, a rallying point, a common ground, and help us build a bridge. Why not claim the gift of the word as a place to begin?More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It was critical to finding a way out. I had assumed young women knew the history of feminism and must have felt gratitude to the movement for the opportunities that the work we have done has afforded them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

To recommend that women become identical to men, would be simple reversal, and would defeat the whole point of androgyny, and for that matter, feminism: in both, the whole point is choice.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When we talk about feminism - equality without apology for all - we can't be talking about for all white women or all highly educated women but all women, regardless of color, class, creed, sexual orientation or identity.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I don't think feminism, as I understand the definition, implies the rejection of maternal values, nurturing children, caring about the men in your life. That is just nonsense to me.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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 [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

I believe that it is our human right to be parents and women. And there's no contradiction between feminism, which means women should have all that they are entitled to, all that they can do, all the opportunities that they can take advantage of they should have.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Feminism is teaching. I've gotten a lot of pleasure pushing younger writers that I've met and worked with.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think feminism means what it has always meant - women want to use all their gifts, all their talents and be judged impartially for them. I don't think feminism has ever meant anything else.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
My generation was not only maligned in book reviews and attacked in graduate school but we lived to see our adored and adorable daughters wonder why feminism had become a dirty word.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The problem with feminism in the second wave was that we fought so much among ourselves, and I think we did so much damage to the movement... and I think the next wave, the third wave, is women mentoring younger women and women helping younger women to enter the political process and the writing world.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
