Famous quotes containing the word feinstein:

    Women have begun to see that if I go through that doorway, I take everybody through it.
    —Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)

    A woman does not have to make decisions based on the need to survive. She can cut through issues, call shots as she sees them.... Many bad decisions are made by men in government because it is good for them personally to make bad public decisions.
    —Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)

    Today, San Francisco has experienced a double tragedy of incredible proportions. As acting mayor, I order an immediate state of mourning in our city. The city and county of San Francisco must and will pull itself together at this time. We will carry on as best as we possibly can.... I think we all have to share the same sense of shame and the same sense of outrage.
    —Dianne Feinstein (b. 1933)
