Freedom, from a woman's perspective

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” 
-- Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is 
no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set 
upon the freedom of my mind.”
--- Virginia Woolf,  A Room of One's Own

It’s not about supplication, it’s about power. 
It’s not about asking, it’s about demanding. 
It’s not about convincing those who are currently in power, 
it’s about changing the very face of power itself. 
 --- Kimberle Williams Crenshaw

“Above all, 
be the heroine of your life, 
not the victim.”
---  Nora Ephron

It is not our differences that divide us. 
It is our inability to recognize, accept, 
and celebrate those differences.
--- Audre Lorde

I was in love with the whole world 
and all that lived in its rainy arms.
--- Louise Erdrich

Though we tremble before uncertain futures
may we meet illness, death and adversity with strength
may we dance in the face of our fears.
--- Gloria Anzaldua

may you find your freedom within...

and, may our national legislation uphold freedom and equality for the humanity of all.
