Alix Kates Shulman

  • Frank had his work; I had my nothing.

  • My mirror image always had to be interpreted. And for that I sought my reflection in someone else's eyes.

  • They say it's worse to be ugly. I think it must only be different. If you're pretty, you are subject to one set of assaults; if you're plain you are subject to another.

  • If, as the girls always said, it's never too early to think about whom to marry, then it could certainly not be too early to think about who to be. Being somebody had to come first, because, of course, somebody could get a much better husband than nobody.

  • Sexism goes so deep that at first it's hard to see; you think it's just reality.
