The state of female artists is very good. But the very definition of art has been biased in that 'art' was what men did in a European tradition and 'crafts' were what women and natives did. But it's actually all the same. Gloria Steinem
Download Wallpaper:

This idea of doing it all is the enemy of equality, not the path to do it.

The women's movement and gay and lesbian movements always come together, and our adversaries are always the same because the male supremacist, patriarchal, ultra-right-wing, religious fundamentalists, whatever you want to call it is devoted to saying that sex is only moral and okay when it is directed towards having children and occurs in patriarchal marriage, so the children are owned. Gloria Steinem

Download Wallpaper:

Every revolution begins as consciousness because some group of people has to imagine change. You have to have the idea of change or at least have a hope before you can proceed.

Religion is often politics made sacred. Gloria Steinem
Download Wallpaper:

Whatever each individual woman is facing; only she knows her biggest challenge. However, if we add up the problems that affect the biggest numbers of women, then issues having to do with physical safety and reproduction are still the biggest. Female bodies are still the battleground, whether that means restricting freedom, birth control and safe abortion in order to turn them into factories, or abandoning female infants because females are less valuable for everything other than reproduction. Gloria Steinem
Download Wallpaper:

Download Wallpaper:

... we've allowed a youth-centered culture to leave us so estranged from our future selves that, when asked about the years beyondfifty, sixty, or seventy-all part of the average human life span providing we can escape hunger, violence, and other epidemics-many people can see only a blank screen, or one on which they project fear of disease and democracy. Gloria Steinem
Download Wallpaper:

... members of a powerful group are raised to believe (however illogically) that whatever affects it will also affect them.

Download Wallpaper:

Patriarchy 101 would have you believe otherwise, but you know - that's just not true. Those inequalities are recipes for resentment. And, yes, the formula isn't perfect yet. We don't all have that. But we're trying. Gloria Steinem
