Famous quotes by crystal eastman:

    ... there is nothing more irritating to a feminist than the average ‘Woman’s Page’ of a newspaper, with its out-dated assumption that all women have a common trade interest in the household arts, and a common leisure interest in clothes and the doings of ‘high society.’ Women’s interests to-day are as wide as the world.
    Crystal Eastman (1881–1928)

    Until women learn to want economic independence ... and until they work out a way to get this independence without denying themselves the joys of love and motherhood, it seems to me feminism has no roots.
    Crystal Eastman (1881–1928)

    Indifference is harder to fight than hostility, and there is nothing that kills an agitation like having everybody admit that it is fundamentally right.
    Crystal Eastman (1881–1928)
