“When it comes to the cause of justice, I take no prisoners and I don't believe in compromising.”
“If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she'd still be standing.”
“Analysis can tell us what is required, but it cannot make us act.”
“We need to insist on fathers and mothers sharing the care of their offspring as well as the opportunity to enjoy the fulfillment of individual rights.”
“... advocating women's rights and greater opportunity for women in the workplace and in every avenue of public life is inconsistent with an insistence on mother taking care of children and housework.”
“Defining child care primarily as women's sphere reinforces the devaluing of women and prevents their equal access to power.”
Mary Frances Berry, U.S. educator
