Famous quotes containing the word group:

    Stripped of ethical rationalizations and philosophical pretensions, a crime is anything that a group in power chooses to prohibit.
    Freda Adler (b. 1934)

    ...Women’s Studies can amount simply to compensatory history; too often they fail to challenge the intellectual and political structures that must be challenged if women as a group are ever to come into collective, nonexclusionary freedom.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    Babette Deutsch (1895–1982)
