QUOTES DU JOUR
"I may be dressing like a traditional bimbo, whatever, but I'm in charge... And isn't that what feminism is all about; you know, equality for men and women? And aren't I in charge of my life, doing the things I want to do?"
-- Madonna in a Boston Globe article written by Suzanne Gordon, December 26, 1990.
"Taught from infancy that beauty is woman's scepter, the mind shapes itself to the body, and roaming around its gilt cage, only seeks to adorn its prison."
-- Mary Wollstonecraft
