Famous quotes containing the word women:

    Sisters, I a’n’t clear what you’d be after. Ef women want any rights more’n dey’s got, why don’t dey jes take ‘em, an’ not be talkin’ about it?
    Sojourner Truth (c. 1777–1883)

    No woman needs intercourse; few women escape it.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)

    The nature of women’s oppression is unique: women are oppressed as women, regardless of class or race; some women have access to significant wealth, but that wealth does not signify power; women are to be found everywhere, but own or control no appreciable territory; women live with those who oppress them, sleep with them, have their children—we are tangled, hopelessly it seems, in the gut of the machinery and way of life which is ruinous to us.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)
