The great mass of women throughout history have been confined to the cultural level of animal life in providing the male with sexual outlet and exercising the animal functions of reproduction and care of the young. - Kate Millet
Woman -- for example, look at her case! She turns tantalizing inviting glances on you. You seize her. No sooner does she feel herself in your grasp than she closes her eyes. It is a sign of her mission, the sign by which she says to man: "Blind yourself, for I am blind." - Luigi Pirandello
For my part I distrust all generalizations about women, favorable and unfavorable, masculine and feminine, ancient and modern; all alike, I should say, result from paucity of experience. - Bertrand Russell
I think I could be a good woman if I had five thousand a year. - Becky Sharp
To behold her is an immediate check to loose behavior; to love her is a liberal education. - Sir Richard Steele
I have no hesitation in saying that although the American woman never leaves her domestic sphere and is in some respects very dependent within it, nowhere does she enjoy a higher station. And if anyone asks me what I think the chief cause of the extraordinary prosperity and growing power of this nation, I should answer that it is due to the superiority of their women. - Alexis De Tocqueville
We have now traced the history of women from Paradise to the nineteenth century and have heard nothing through the long roll of the ages but the clank of their fetters. - Lady Jane Wilde
The strength of women comes from the fact that psychology cannot explain us. Men can be analyzed, women merely adored. - Oscar Wilde
As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world. - Virginia Woolf
What Women Want: To be loved, to be listened to, to be desired, to be respected, to be needed, to be trusted, and sometimes, just to be held. What Men Want: Tickets for the world series. - Dave Barry
The being who, for most men, is the source of the most lively, and even, be it said, to the shame of philosophical delights, the most lasting joys; the being towards or for whom all their efforts tend for whom and by whom fortunes are made and lost; for whom, but especially by whom, artists and poets compose their most delicate jewels; from whom flow the most enervating pleasures and the most enriching sufferings -- woman, in a word, is not, for the artist in general... only the female of the human species. She is rather a divinity, a star. - Charles Baudelaire
Femininity appears to be one of those pivotal qualities that is so important no one can define it. - Caroline Bird
Good women always think it is their fault when someone else is being offensive. Bad women never take the blame for anything. - Anita Brookner
If Miss means respectably unmarried, and Mrs. respectably married, then Ms. means nudge, nudge, wink, wink. - Angela Carter
The trouble with some women is they get all excited about nothing, and then they marry him. - Cher
Don't you realize that as long as you have to sit down to pee, you'll never be a dominant force in the world? You'll never be a convincing technocrat or middle manager. Because people will know. She's in there sitting down. - Don Delillo
Women are most fascinating between the ages of thirty-five and forty, after they have won a few races and know how to pace themselves. Since few women ever pass forty, maximum fascination can continue indefinitely. - Christian Dior
Woman is not born: she is made. In the making, her humanity is destroyed. She becomes symbol of this, symbol of that: mother of the earth, slut of the universe; but she never becomes herself because it is forbidden for her to do so. - Andrea Dworkin
A woman's heart must be of such a size and no larger, else it must be pressed small, like Chinese feet; her happiness is to be made as cakes are, by a fixed receipt. - George Eliot
When a woman behaves like a man why doesn't she behave like a nice man? - Dame Edith Evans
They talk about a woman's sphere, as though it had a limit. There's not a place in earth or heaven. There's not a task to mankind given... without a woman in it. - Kate Field
The feminine mystique has succeeded in burying millions of American women alive. - Betty Friedan
The Woman-Soul leadeth us upward and on! - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Older women can afford to agree that femininity is a charade, a matter of colored hair, ecru lace and whalebones, the kind of slap and tat that transvestites are in love with, and no more. - Germaine Greer
We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains. - Ursula K. Le Guin
If it were not somewhat fanciful to suppose that every human excellence is presented, as it were, in one kind of being, we might believe that the whole treasure of morality and order is enshrined in the female character. - Karl Wilhelm Von Humboldt
The real thinking of woman is pre-eminently practical and applied. It is something we describe as sound common sense, and is usually directed to what is close at hand and personal. In general, it can be said that feminine mentality manifests an undeveloped, childlike, or primitive character; instead of the thirst for knowledge, curiosity; instead of judgment, prejudice; instead of thinking, imagination or dreaming; instead of will, wishing. Where a man takes up objective problems, a woman contents herself with solving riddles; where he battles for knowledge and understanding, she contents herself with faith or superstition, or else she makes assumptions. - Emma Jung
The chief thing about a woman -- who is much of a woman -- is that in the long run she is not to be had... She is not to be caught by any of the catch-words, love, beauty, honor, duty, worth, work, salvation -- none of them -- not in the long run. In the long run she only says "Am I satisfied, or is there some beastly dissatisfaction gnawing and gnawing inside me." And if there is some dissatisfaction, it is physical, at least as much as psychic, sex as much as soul. - D. H. Lawrence
Girls who put out are tramps. Girls who don't are ladies. This is, however, a rather archaic usage of the word. Should one of you boys happen upon a girl who doesn't put out, do not jump to the conclusion that you have found a lady. What you have probably found is a lesbian. - Fran Lebowitz
I expect that Woman will be the last thing civilized by Man. - George Meredith
