Charlotte Bunch

  • If you think that you are where you are just because you worked hard, it is easy to become self-righteous and make classist moral judgments about others.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • in Colette Reid and Charlotte Bunch, Class and Feminism ()
  • Our very strength as lesbians lies in the fact that we are outside of patriarchy; our existence challenges its life.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • "Not for Lesbians Only" (1975), Passionate Politics ()
  • America is like an unfaithful lover who promised us more than we got.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • "Speaking Out, Reaching Out," Passionate Politics ()
  • We know that priorities are amiss in the world when a man gets a military medal of honor for killing another man and a dishonorable discharge for loving one.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • "Speaking Out, Reaching Out," Passionate Politics ()
  • The full implications of feminism will evolve over time, as we organize, experiment, think, analyze, and revise our ideas and strategies in light of our experiences. No theory emerges in full detail overnight; the dominant theories of our day have expanded and changed over many decades. That it will take time should not discourage us. That we might fail to pursue our ideas — given the enormous need for them in society today — is unconscionable.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • "Not By Degrees," Passionate Politics ()
  • ... we do not need, and indeed never will have, all the answers before we act ... it is often only through taking action that we can discover some of them.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • "Not By Degrees," Passionate Politics ()
  • ... whether there are innately female leadership styles ... is not really the right question. It is more important to ask why there has been so little attention paid to women leaders over the years as well as why the styles of leading more often exhibited by women are particularly useful at this critical moment in history. The empowering, cooperative approaches most often associated with women are not exclusively female terrain. If we see these as crucial models for leadership in the twenty-first century, then we do not want only women to adopt them.

    • Charlotte Bunch,
    • in Helen S. Astin and Carole Leland, Women of Influence, Women of Vision: A Cross-Generational Study of Leaders and Social Change ()
  • The state of the world today demands that women become less modest and dream / plan / act / risk on a larger scale.

    • Charlotte Bunch
  • There is no issue that is not a women's issue.
