Feminist Quote Bag

"I think she will fascinate modern women in the same way that many historical women strike a chord: despite so many changes in the world, women are still trying to find happiness, manage their children, seek advantage, and avoid the persecution of misogynists.  As women of any time, we have a lot in common.  Despite the amazing advances in the rights of women (and I am so grateful for these myself,) the struggle for women's freedom, independence and the right to exercise power goes on."  
-- Author Philippa Gregory discussing her main character Elizabeth Woodville in the historical novel "The White Queen."

"Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness." -- Oprah Winfrey
