Creative Quotations from . . .
Susan Faludi
(1959-____) born on
Apr 18
US writer, feminist. Her best-selling book, "Backlash," 1991, characterized media distortions of women's issues as retaliation for women asserting themselves.
         
   
F
The demand that women "return to femininity" is a demand that the cultural gears shift into reverse, that we back up to a fabled time when everyone was richer, younger, more powerful.

R
As it turns out, social scientists have established only one fact about single women's mental health: employment improves it.
A
Feminism's agenda is basic: It asks that women not be forced to "choose" between public justice and private happiness.
N
The "feminine" woman is forever static and childlike. She is like the ballerina in an old-fashioned music box, her unchanging features tiny and girlish, her voice tinkly, her body stuck on a pin, rotating in a spiral that will never grow.
K
[Feminism] asks that women be free to define themselves -- instead of having their identity defined for them, time and again, by their culture and their men.
