Last quote about International Women's Day

Hillary Clinton
Too many women, especially women of color, have had a lifetime of practice taking precisely these kinds of indignities in stride. Important as it is, corporate feminism is no substitute for inclusive concrete solutions that improve life for women everywhere. Because as challenging as it is to climb the career ladder it's even harder for women at the margins unable to get on or stay on even the lowest rung. And for too many women, especially low wage workers basic things like a livable wage, or predictable work schedules or affordable child care are still way out of reach.feedback

It's frustrating that a significant proportion of funding goes towards male-founded or led businesses. This is not just an economic discussion, though we know start-ups are vital to the UK economy: we want to see smart, savvy businesswomen getting the same opportunities as their male counterparts.feedback

Edwin Nelson

Personally I feel the media (and especially the ABC) tends to focus on progressive topics such as climate change, homosexual marriage and feminism – but neglects issues such as Judeo-Christian values, national identity and the problems with multiculturalism.feedback

Thandie Newton

I love being here, but I can't work, because I can't do Downton Abbey, can't be in Victoria, can't be in Call The Midwife - well, I could, but I don't want to play someone who's being racially abused. I'm not interested in that, don't want to do it...there just seems to be a desire for stuff about the Royal Family, stuff from the past, which is understandable, but it just makes it slim pickings for people of colour. I'm talented at what I do, but I've had to struggle against racism and sexism. But I'm glad of it, in a way, that I survived and overcame.feedback

Holly Dunsworth

People are already being discriminated genetically without mandatory genetic testing–that's what sexism and racism is. This would result in a higher resolution of discrimination and more individualized ways of targeting people.feedback

Roger Gale

It will be incredibly damaging if we go down this route. Superficially, this is an easy hit for anybody wanting to show they are doing something. Actually, it is crass and they will live to regret it - and so will the House and its MPs. Obviously, I trust her implicitly, she knows what I think and why I think it and constituents can call on her whenever I'm not around. She probably does 60 to 70 hours work a week, including most of Saturday, and I can call on her any time day or night. I couldn't do that with an assistant recruited through an advert.feedback

Sahar Fetrat

On every international women's day, I keep thinking more of how suppressed we are within this patriarchal society. The symbolic celebrations, flowers, gifts and some words of empathy and sympathy are always given to women every 8th of March while on the same day, sexism, inequality, harassment and violence against women screams from all the streets and corners of this country.feedback

Selma Miriam

I like to try maybe two or three new recipes a week. It's good to explore new things.feedback

Pippa Norris

[It's] a kind of liberal myth. [Liberals] want to have a reason why people are supporting populist parties when their values are so clearly against progressive values in terms of misogyny, sexism, racism.feedback

Sarah Champion

Yesterday, the prime minister and chancellor talked up the significance of International Women's Day yet their warm words have amounted to nothing. Women are still bearing the brunt of this Tory government's failed austerity agenda – with the 86% figure on women remaining unchanged since last year. Things are just as bad as ever for women under this Tory government. Labour calls on the government to urgently publish analysis of the true impact of their budgets and spending announcements on women and to explain how they intend to reverse this disproportionate impact.feedback

Terry O'Neill

For years and years, March 8 has been International Women's Day, and it has been a happy, happy day, which is fine. But the political climate that we find ourselves in right now requires us to have political power.feedback

Stephen Tisdalle - State Street Global Advisors

What this girl represents is the present, but also the future. She's not angry at the bull – she's confident, she knows what she's capable of, and she's wanting the bull to take note. We thought this was the most tasteful, respectful and effective way for us and others to participate in the national dialogue around International Women's Day.feedback

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau

This week, as we mark International Women's Day, let's celebrate the boys and men in our lives who encourage us to be who we truly are, who treat girls & women with respect, and who aren't afraid to speak up in front of others. Together, we can create a movement that inspires more men to join the fight to build a better tomorrow with equal rights & opportunities for everyone … because #EqualityMatters.feedback

Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor

The call for a day of action in support of a radical agenda that recognises all women has resonated with thousands let down by mainstream feminism. Mainstream feminism has failed. Perhaps the most shocking example is the life expectancy of black trans women – in Latin America, it’s 35 years. The brutality of that statistic was on display again when two black trans women in New Orleans were killed within a matter of days last February. Since the new year, there are reports that seven transgender women across the US have been killed. The reality of poverty, violence, and discrimination in the lives of trans women of colour is just one reason why organisers of today’s Women’s Strike have mobilised to revert the innocuous “women’s month” back to its radical predecessor known as International Women’s Day.feedback

Celine Bonnaire - Kering Foundation

Violence against women is a silent phenomenon. Our mission is to stop this violence and improve women's lives. This year the motto for International Women's Day is 'be bold for change' and the foundation was founded really by a bold commitment from our Chairman and CEO Francios-Henri Pinault when he realised that one woman in three is a victim of violence in her lifetime. It was such a great taboo. Now it's something that's much more addressed but in 2008 there was still a very strong code of silence on this subject.feedback

Laurie Penny

If you name someone's name, Twitter and clickbait media are going to turn it into a feud between you and that person. Names are called out, protests are organised, hashtags are circulated.feedback

Shulamith Firestone

Before we can act to change a situation ... we must know how it has arisen and evolved, and through what institutions it now operates.feedback

Martine Letts

The idea is to install traffic lights with female representation, as well as male representation, to help reduce unconscious bias. The aim is to move towards one-to-one male and female representation across the state of Victoria.feedback

Fiona Richardson

There are many small - but symbolically significant - ways that women are excluded from public space.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

It's interesting how when we would think of ideas for Belle, it was like, Wow that's what [Watson] is doing in her own life.feedback

Emma Watson

We'd been doing so many crazy things on that shoot but it felt incredibly artistic and I've been so creatively involved and engaged with Tim and I'm so thrilled about how interesting and beautiful the photographs were.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

In the original film she's someone who loves reading, and in this film, she's equally concerned with teaching other girls how to read.feedback

Bill Condon - Disney

In the 1991 film, Belle was a real breakthrough among Disney heroines. But obviously a lot has happened in 25 years. We wanted to make sure that she remained a feminist figure and someone who looks to the future.feedback

Emma Watson

We'd been doing so many crazy things on that shoot," "but it felt incredibly artistic and I've been so creatively involved and engaged with Tim and I'm so thrilled about how interesting and beautiful the photographs were.feedback

Emma Watson

It just always reveals to me how many misconceptions and what a misunderstanding there is about what feminism is.feedback

Julia Hartley-Brewer

Emma Watson: 'Feminism, feminism... gender wage gap... why oh why am I not taken seriously... feminism... oh, and here are my t--s!feedback

Edwina Wolstencroft - BBC Radio

As part of our International Women's Day programming we want to give a platform and a voice to female composers who have been unjustly neglected by history.feedback

Jessica Lange

It tells a story of Hollywood, but that's just a microcosm of what goes on everywhere. What interested me the most was the sexism that exists but also, even more so, the ageism. What happens to a woman when she gets to be a certain age, and how devastating that is. I think it's good to have women working alongside other women. And I think Ryan is really doing something meaningful with that. He's not just paying lip service to an idea. And it changes the feeling on the set entirely.feedback

Martyn Percy

Sheffield is a go-ahead, vibrant, progressive city, with cutting-edge universities and research-led industries. It is thoroughly modern. The public will neither comprehend nor welcome this rather fogeyish sacralised sexism of the religious organisation known simply as 'The Society', whose Council of Bishops includes Bishop Philip North.feedback

Iratxe Garcia Perez - Socialist Worker

And I know it hurts you, I know it hurts and worries you, that today women can sit in this house and represent European citizens with the same rights as you. I am here to defend all European women from men like you.feedback

Janusz Korwin-Mikke

And of course women should earn less than men, because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent, and they must earn less! That's all.feedback

Ryan Murphy

I wanted to make the show because I wanted to tell a story about modern issues that are facing women today, and, oddly enough, nothing's changed. You'd think things have progressed. They have not. So really it's a show about sexism and misogyny, and Why aren't women being paid as much as men? And Why in our culture we have 'It' girls and not 'It' boys? And Why do women feel there's only room for there to be one successful woman at a time? … All of these things are very interwoven in a very juicy, fun, but ultimately, I feel, a tragedy.feedback

Ryan Murphy

Treating inequality and sexism as a horror movie – that's what I tried to do. Susan and Jessica gave Bette and Joan the happy ending that they should have had. They realized that the way to win was to win together.feedback

Kerry Jang

It's now synonymous here with bigotry and sexism and that type of branding has no place in the city of Vancouver ... it's like a beacon of racism. I think Donald Jr. called me disgusting and [said] I should be ashamed of myself. He also said that about the Mayor and the Premier of the Province. So you know it's typical Trump rhetoric.feedback

Ryan Murphy

It deals with sexism and misogyny and the idea of woman fighting for very few opportunities in Hollywood, and I think not a lot has changed.feedback

Kerry Jang

The name Trump has now become synonymous not with luxury and lifestyle but with racism, sexism and intolerance. With his name on that building, one of Vancouver's tallest and most iconic buildings, it just becomes a beacon of racism, and it's just not Vancouver.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

It's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic sense because it seems to be very anti-male, and it certainly is very pro-abortion, and I'm neither anti-male or pro-abortion.feedback

Sarah Friar - Square

It's systemic across multiple industries and I think we all have to admit that there's a problem and that will be the beginning of planning a solution. That's the tone at the top that needs to be heard. I think our results speak for themselves.feedback

Evan Spiegel - Snap

We've got a bunch of kids who were accused of misogyny, sexism – if you look at the female scandal of two and a half years ago – we were disgusted at the company. These people now want to take billions of dollars from the public markets and say 'leave us alone,' we want ownership for life. This is wrong.feedback

Travis Kalanick - Uber

I believe in creating a workplace where a deep sense of justice underpins everything we do. Every Uber employee should be proud of the culture we have and what we will build together over time. What is driving me through all this is a determination that we take what's happened as an opportunity to heal wounds of the past and set a new standard for justice in the workplace. It is my number one priority that we come through this a better organization, where we live our values and fight for and support those who experience injustice.feedback

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Hey Donald, I have a great idea. Why don't we switch jobs? You take over TV because you're such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then, people can finally sleep comfortably again. Hmm?feedback

Arnold Schwarzenegger

"Why don't we switch jobs? You take over TV, because you're such an expert in ratings, and I take over your job. And then people can finally sleep comfortably again."feedback

Ashley Judd

Only when women have critical mass in every department at your companies, including building platforms from the ground up, will the conversations about priorities and solutions change.feedback

Ashley Judd

EDGE, the global standard for gender equality, is the minimum standard. And guess what, Silicon Valley? If L'Oréal in India, in the Philippines, in Brazil and in Russia can do it, you can, too. Enough excuses.feedback

Ashley Judd

Shall we talk about our friends in tech? Said with dignity and respect, the sexism in your workplaces must end.feedback

Martin Shkreli

I'm pro-feminism; I don't think these people know that. I was going to tear Milo to shreds ... he doesn't understand feminism.feedback

Barbara Lee

I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House. Donald Trump has proven that his administration will normalize the most extreme fringes of the Republican Party. On Inauguration Day, I will not be celebrating. I will be organizing and preparing for resistance.feedback

Lauren Duca

Tucker Carlson's brand is a toxic mix of blowhard condescension, partisan hackery and unbridled sexism. It only makes sense that he would excel at Fox.feedback

Megyn Kelly

Experience gives you a folder in which to put a new upset. Ah yes, I'm being called a bimbo by the likely Republican nominee. I will file that with my bouts with workplace sexism.'.feedback

Michelle Bachelet

I think that beyond asking for forgiveness, this demonstrates that in Chile there is still machismo, sexism and in some cases even misogyny.feedback

Christine Dickinson

Anybody that encourages racism, sexism, any other form of inequalities, and is against the British value of tolerance, then I am very worried about them having access to young people.feedback

Noemi Abad

I just can't have Donald Trump running this country and teaching our children racism, sexism and bigotry. Out of his own mouth he made this division. He needs to go – there's no place for racism in society in America.feedback

Warren Beatty

I think that the sexual puritanism of America and the rise of feminism in the late '50s and the early '60s which occurs in this movie is meaningful.feedback

Shervin Pishevar

At the same time we need to have a serious national dialogue about our culture, values and the rampant sexism, racism and hate that Trump campaign has exposed.This is a tipping point for our nation and we must confront the systemic problems that this election has exposed.feedback

Barack Obama

The only thing this office does is it amplifies who you are, it magnifies who you are, it shows who you are.feedback

Arlan Hamilton

By lending his image, his voice, his influence and substantial capital to Trump, Thiel isn't simply exercising his legal right to vote: He is fueling and enabling racism, sexism, sexual assault, violence and tyranny.feedback

Martin Chungong

The report … is an eye-opener, it's the first of its kind. We have gone out to interview members of parliament, to have their own personal perspectives, from their own experience. We are looking at how we can help resolve some of these issues, because they are actually a stumbling block to political participation of women.feedback

Lynda Obst

It was wild! We wanted to show young women that feminism is fun. It looks good, we dressed great, and it's sexy. Don't go around thinking that feminism is this grumpy, grim thing that you don't want to be part of.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. Do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

I want to quickly address the questions and concerns about Peter Thiel as a board member and Trump supporter. We can't create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault. ... Our community will be stronger for all our differences.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

As a woman (and a) leader, I think I have an even greater responsibility that I am listening to all the women, all the people of color, who may not feel as heard. In the midst of all this, he was deep down with all of us to understand what has transpired and what can we learn.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

In the midst of all this, he was deep down with all of us to understand what has transpired and what can we learn. I think what that says is this is every bit as important as our products.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

We cannot risk losing that. We have to have a safe place for people to do that. I think we need to constantly reevaluate the tools we have and think about what could be more effective.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

I don't think people are too shy about doing it, but I am also very cognizant that we are still 70/30 in our very hard-core engineering team. We have to be cognizant that someone may not feel that their voice is heard or valued.feedback

Denise Young Smith - Apple

We take these things not just seriously, but personally. I have been grieved over this ... that someone may have had this kind of an experience.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy., Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?, Gabby Giffords: The gun control movement's human shield. Just imagine, Donald Trump, reading that and thinking: this is what I need more of in my campaign.feedback

John Inverdale

You're the first person ever to win two Olympic tennis gold medals. That's an extraordinary feat, isn't it?feedback

Ben White

She's doing the emotion for both of them really, he's looking at her going: 'What's for tea?feedback

John Inverdale

Do you think Bartoli's dad told her when she was little: 'You're never going to be a looker, you'll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight'?feedback

Andy Murray

I think Venus and Serena [Williams] have won about four each but hadn't defended a singles title before.feedback

Jennifer Aniston

The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. We define a woman's value based on her marital and maternal status.feedback

Hillary Clinton

We should be excited about seeing women there [in leadership] and absolutely it's worth celebrating. But, in and of itself, it's not enough.feedback

Sam Smethers

While they're all being objectified and undermined and ridiculed in that way, they're never going to be heard in the same way as men – they're always going to be battling for their right to be there [in politics].feedback

Dilma Rousseff

They've taken an attitude with me that they wouldn't take with a man. I profoundly lament the level of prejudice against women.feedback

Viggo Hansen

When my son was in kindergarten, they tried to force him to pee standing up, when we had taught him to pee sitting down. When the school let him sit down to pee, there was no problem. I had read about a school in Norway that officially banned boys' stand-up peeing. Lots of people's reaction was that was taking away boys' right to be boys.feedback

Lotta Rajalin

They think we are going to change girls to boys and boys to girls and that's of course not what we are doing. We like to give every human being the same rights, the same possibilities, the same responsibilities. And that is a question of democracy.feedback

Luana Mesquita

I think that these days there is no sexism. We live in a very liberal world.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

I think you will never find an ex or current Femen member who will tell you 'yes I went through casting' or something like that. It's nothing to do with appearance. It's about physical and moral preparation. Femen accepts anyone. Any woman can join Femen. You have to be trained – we are trained very well – we are trained physically, trained morally, and if we do one of the actions we have to train before the event. But it doesn't have anything to do with colour of your hair, or the size of your ass, (I'm sorry).feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

I think that anyone should understand, the point about Femen is, it doesn't have anything to do with different cultures. It's not about that, we're talking about universal human rights. What we are doing is we are saying to the world that there are no different human rights for Arab women, and a different type for European, and a third type for America, for example. What we do is, we spread universalism, we say we have the right to control our own bodies, everywhere, in any culture, but it doesn't have anything to do with cultural differences.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

Definitely, yes, of course. But it's a question as to whether it's a choice or not.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

Our oldest member is 64 years old, she's Ukrainian and she does topless actions.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

You can look at our breasts as long as you want. But, while watching our breasts you cannot ignore the message written there. Our breasts are talking, our breasts are screaming, we have transformed our naked bodies into a political instrument. We have given the world a new meaning of women's nudity. And now this is a political instrument, this is my political weapon, and on my breasts I have written a message I want you to hear.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

You know I would say that everything that we do is always a personal choice. And fear is a choice as well.feedback

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

Every time that we find we have a new enemy, of women in general, of women's liberation, of course we get attacked more and more. For example today I woke up because of an SMS [text message] that I got. It said 'die'. And I thought to myself 'good morning Inn.feedback

Olga Trostiansky

The DSK tsunami got France talking in every household. Some intellectuals, French men, also reacted, some to support and maybe even to protect Mr Dominique Strauss-Kahn. All these reactions and this speaking out made people talk at home. I believe it's very interesting that men and women became aware of the existence of sexism.feedback

Nick Clegg

Let me be clear: the Liberal Democrats must be a party where even a hint of sexism is taken seriously; where every allegation of harassment is dealt with properly; and where there can be no fear that power or position can be abused.feedback

Barack Obama

That is not change. You can put lipstick on a pig. It is still a pig.feedback

Lilian Thuram

Well, to answer your question, do you really think that sexism is part of human nature? No, I think that sexism is the oldest of the hierarchies which exist between men and women and it's a construction, used to exploit women. And racism is exactly the same thing. At a certain moment in history, in order to exploit non-white people, their inferiority had to be constructed.feedback
