Women


"Because women's work is never done and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious.
We're the first to get fired.
What we look like is more important than what we do.
If we get raped it's our fault.
If we get beaten we must have provoked it.
If we raised our voices, we're nagging bitches.
If we enjoy sex, we are nymphos.
If we don't, we are frigid.

If we love women, it's because we can't get a "real" man.
If we ask our doctor too many questions, we are neurotic and/or pushy.
If we expect childcare, we are selfish.
If we stand up for our rights, we're aggressive and "unfeminine".
If we don't, we're typical weak females.
If we want to get married, we're out to trap a man.
If we don't, we're unnatural.
Because we still can't get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon.
If we can't cope or don't want a pregnancy, we're made to feel guilty about abortion....
And yet, for lots of other reasons, we are part of the women's liberation movement.... - Anonymous (as quoted in The Torch, 14 Sept 1987)
