Famous Quotes & Quotations About Feminism:

One does not have to sleep with, or even touch, someone who has paid for your meal. All those obligations are hereby rendered null and void, and any man who doesn't think so needs a quick jab in the kidney.

One of the things about equality is not just that you be treated equally to a man, but that you treat yourself equally to the way you treat a man.

Prostitution reinforces all the old dumb clichés about women’s sexuality; that they are not built to enjoy sex and are little more than walking masturbation aids, things to be DONE TO, things so sensually null and void that they have to be paid to indulge in fornication, that women can be had, bought, as often as not sold from one man to another. When the sex war is won prostitutes should be shot as collaborators for their terrible betrayal of all women.
~ Julie Burchill.

Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of our civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence than ours.

I listen to feminists and all these radical gals - most of them are failures. They've blown it. Some of them have been married, but they married some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission to go to the bathroom. These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men - that's their problem.
~ Jerry Falwell.

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute.
~ Rebecca West, Mr. Chesterton in Hysterics: A Study in Prejudice, The Clarion, 14 Nov 1913.

The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, "It's a girl."
~ Shirley Chisholm.

The test for whether or not you can hold a job should not be the arrangement of your chromosomes.
~ Bella Abzug.

The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it.
~ Roseanne Barr.

The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation because in the degradation of woman the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source.

There are very few jobs that actually require a penis or vagina. All other jobs should be open to everybody.
~ Florynce Kennedy.

There is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.
~ Madeleine K. Albright.

To tell a woman everything she may not do is to tell her what she can do.
~ Spanish Proverb.

We have to have faith in ourselves. I have never met a woman who, deep down in her core, really believes she has great legs. And if she suspects that she might have great legs, then she's convinced that she has a shrill voice and no neck.
~ Cynthia Heimel.

We've begun to raise daughters more like sons... but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.
~ Gloria Steinem.

I've yet to be on a campus where most women weren't worrying about some aspect of combining marriage, children, and a career. I've yet to find one where many men were worrying about the same thing.
~ Gloria Steinem.

Man endures pain as an undeserved punishment; woman accepts it as a natural heritage.
~ Author Unknown.
