More quotes about Feminism
Have you watched Snow White lately? I get real funky about the classics; I don’t like (my sons) watching it. It’s totally sexist, misogynistic – she’s cleaning for seven dwarfs. There’s nothing wrong with a woman who chooses to stay at home with her family, it’s a hard-ass job, but it’s the way it’s spoken about.
For me, as a feminist, I would say it should be up to the woman to decide if she wants to be a mom If she wants to go out and work, have a career other than being a mom, then she should be able to do that as well.
I just love bossy women. To me, bossy is not a pejorative term at all. It mans somebody’s passionate and engaged and ambitious and doesn’t mind leading.
I actually trust the women I know. I trust them with their choices, I trust them with their bodies and I trust them with their children. I trust that they are decent enough and wise enough and worthy enough to carry the right of abortion.
I’m not a feminist. If men were going through the things women are going through today, I would be fighting for them with just as much passion. I believe in equality.
I think the golden rule for men should be: If you’re a man, don’t say anything to a woman on the street that you wouldn’t want a man saying to you in prison.
It’s about being alive and feisty and not sitting down and shutting up. Even if people would like you to.
I do respect them; I have great respect for women. In fact, one of the reasons ‘The Apprentice’ was such a successful show for so many years, the audience of women was fantastic.
No country can ever truly flourish if it stifles the potential of its women and deprives itself of the contributions of half its citizens.
I feel there are certain people who are systematically ripping (feminism) down because of their lack of regard and their ignorance about what the women before us had to go through.
Strong men, men who are truly role models, don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful.
