Quote for Today

". . . women can act . . . Because the demographics and the opinion polls are on women's side.  Because women's hour on the stage is long, long overdue. Because, whatever new obstacles are mounted against the future march toward equality, whatever new myths invented, penalties levied, opportunities rescinded, or degradations imposed, no one can ever take from the American woman the justness of her cause."
~Susan Faludi, Backlash: The Undeclared War Against American Women (1991)

"Resolved, that the women of this nation in 1876, have greater cause for discontent, rebellion and revolution that the men of 1776." ~ Susan B. Anthony

"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition." ~Timothy Leary

[as read in Thom Hartmann's book, Threshold: The Progressive Plan to Pull America Back From the Brink]

  1. Lisa, love the quotes. And this is a wonderful idea for a blog. Men's treatment and devaluation of women over the ages has been the worst scandal in our history. It's sad to see how it persists even today.
