Happy International Women’s Day!
In honour of this great day, TheHistoryHub is celebrating by presenting a number of awesome, empowering, feminist quotes:
“History is herstory too” – Author Unknown
“The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, “It’s a girl.” – Shirley Chisholm
“Women are the only oppressed group in our society that lives in intimate association with their oppressors.” – Evelyn Cunningham
“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people.” – Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler
“You don’t have to be anti-man to be pro-woman.” – Jane Galvin Lewis
“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
“Men weren’t really the enemy – they were fellow victims suffering from an outmoded masculine mystique that made them feel unnecessarily inadequate when there were no bears to kill.” – Betty Friedan
“We’ve begun to raise daughters more like sons… but few have the courage to raise our sons more like our daughters.” – Gloria Steinem
