Famous quotes containing the words access and/or rights:

    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)

    At the Carter Center we work with victims of oppression, and we give support to human rights heroes.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
