Yesterday, feminist icon Gloria Steinem celebrated her 79th birthday. Still beautiful and wiser than ever, she is an inspiration to all women. Her name will be forever associated with the women’s rights movement.
Whenever I need a pick-me-upper, I pick up one of her books and, if I’m in a hurry, I recall her famous quotes.
These are my favorite Gloria Steinem quotes:
Some of us are becoming the men we want to marry.
We’ve begun to raise daughters more like sons…but few have the courage to raise our sons more like daughters.
Most women are one man away from welfare.
God may be in the details, but the goddess is in the questions. Once we begin to ask them, there’s no turning back.
A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.
A pedestal is as much a prison as any small, confined place.
If the shoe doesn’t fit, must we change the foot?
Hope is a very unruly emotion.
The truth will set you free, but first it will piss you off.
