“This is no simple reform. It really is a revolution. Sex and race because they are easy and visible differences have been the primary ways of organizing human beings into superior and inferior groups and into the cheap labor on which this system still depends. We are talking about a society in which there will be no roles other than those chosen or those earned. We are really talking about humanism.”
Gloria Steinem
(Speech Address to the Women of America, July 10, 1971, National Women’s Political Caucus)

    I like so much this idea of feminism as humanism. Thanks, Gloria, for formulating it so clearly and thanks, Barbara, for quoting it here. Your blog surelly has many interests to me, and I will be here as often as I can. Also thanks for your visit 🙂
