Gloria Allred

  • Why is it immoral to be paid for an act that is perfectly legal if done for free?

    • Gloria Allred,
    • with Lisa Bloom, Los Angeles Times-Washington Post News Services ()
  • Do not let adversity break you. Think of it as a learning experience that will make you stronger.

  • Both princes and princesses belong in palaces of power, but the doors won't always open unless you fight for your rights.

  • There appears to be a disturbing trend in this nation to try to force single moms to choose between their children and their careers. If they take their careers seriously, they are labeled as bad mothers. If they spend time with their children, they are labeled as people who can't be serious about careers outside the home. This is a sexist double standard. No such guilt trip is imposed on men, who are generally not forced to choose between their children and their jobs.

  • Minorities have never been given their rights. They have always had to wage a political and legal battle to win them.

  • Generally, dictatorships do not work in marriage — or, for that matter, in any other relationship.

  • ... I have been the victim of many of the injustices that women who are my clients have had. That is how I understand how this is impacting their lives economically, psychologically, often physically. It's all personal. For me, if one woman is denied her rights, we're all being denied our rights.

  • There is no change without sacrifice.

  • I live in a war zone. I would never have imagined 37 years ago when I started practicing law that there would still be so much discrimination against women, so much denial of women's rights.

    • Gloria Allred,
    • in Patt Morrison, "Filner's Nemesis," The Los Angeles Times ()
  • ... Gov. [Jerry] Brown said to me, 'Why do you criticize me for not appointing enough women judges?' Then he named some he had appointed. And I said: 'Governor, you can't name all of the male judges you've appointed. When you can't name all of the women judges you've appointed, then you will have appointed enough.'
