All quotes about Sexism

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.

Debi Hill

[As I am] in my late 40's I like to be referred to as one of the girls. Sir Roger certainly isnt sexist and it shocks me to see how much attention this has received. I quite enjoy it, it's nice, we're just a very happy team. It's very familiar and we are just one happy family. We know looking in the dictionary that girl means a young woman only up to the age of 11 or 12. It's diminishing and demeaning to refer to women who are older than 12 as a child, really. These are working women who are doing a job and have a career.

Debi Hill

Ive worked with Roger for nearly 18 years and I really enjoy being there. We are a very happy team. We feel very valued and appreciated for what we do, and there's nothing wrong with how we're treated.

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.

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.

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.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke

Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke

Do you know how many women are in the first 100 of chess players? I tell you: no one. Women must earn less than men, because they are weaker, smaller, less intelligent, they must earn less ... that is all.

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.

Faiza Mushtaq

The 'empowerment' that so many Al-Huda women speak about doesn't make much sense from a liberal feminist perspective, especially to those who can't come to terms with these women's full face-and-body covering.

Sarah Michelle Gellar

As an actor, you wish for that one role where you can leave your mark and forever be remembered, with Buffy I got so much more. She's a feminist challenge to gender hierarchy. Buffy may have been the Chosen One, but I was the lucky one.

Jane Matt

I can't imagine not coming to work. I'm here to challenge every single sexist comment, assumption or act every single day. I do it by working.

Justin Trudeau

Women's rights are everybody's rights. We know that society is better – more prosperous, more stable, more peaceful, more cohesive – when women's rights are respected, and when women are valued, empowered, and lead the way in our communities. That's why men have to be involved in fighting for women's rights … It can't just be women – if men don't speak up, it'll be much more difficult to make the fundamental changes we need. I'm proud to be a feminist, because making sure that everyone understands we all have a role in fighting for equality is the only way to move forward.

Angela Carter

Did not prepare me well for patriarchy. He was putty in my hands throughout my childhood.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke

Of course women must earn less than men because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent. They must earn less, that's all.

Kate Hendricks Thomas

In 2014, on a popular Facebook page called “Doctrine Man,” a serving Army National Guard officer wrote “let the butt hurt begin” in a thread discussing an article about one of us, Paula Broadwell, and, below it, posted a graphic image of a woman’s partially naked body impaled by a pitchfork. (Editors note: This link [].

Li Maizi

The backlash is painful, but it coexists with progress as women activists manage – slowly – to bring about a change in attitudes. I often think of the day I was detained in Beijing. On the night of 6 March 2015, the police knocked on my door and took me to the station, where I was questioned nonstop for 24 hours. Later I was sent to a detention centre, where I was held for 37 days.

Andi Dorfman

Honestly, you're entitled to do whatever you want. You have three girls that you respect and care about, that are dating you, that you're dating. You've met their families. They've professed how much they like you or love you. You're an adult; I think you have every right to get as intimate as the two of you want in each relationship. That's my feminist rant.

Caroline Framke

While the idea of some kind of mass feminist defection from Trump's base and inner circle might be a comforting fantasy for some, it ignores the fact that many women did and do support Trump.

Caroline Dinenage

Dressed in heels or flats, we are collectively putting our foot down.

Dan Matthews

So I suppose it's fairly contradictory in a way, because in one respect I'm saying that we men should be required to wear a suit and tie but women shouldn't wear high heels. But I think that's just where the line happens to be at the moment.

Penelope Mantzaris

A lot of things are enforced, but high heels in particular – because that can also be a health issue for people – I think that's unnecessary.

Nicola Thorp

Dress codes should reflect society. Twenty years ago, women weren't allowed to wear trousers in the same role that I'm doing now. And it's only because some women spoke up about that and said, 'We feel like we have a right to wear trousers,' that that's changed.

Gill Furniss

Quite literally adding insult to injury, she was denied any compensation or sick pay as she wasn't on the payroll for long enough. Needless to say, she did not return to this type of work, but not everyone has that choice.

Helen Jones

It is fair to say that what we found shocked us. We found attitudes that belonged more – I was going to say in the 1950s but probably the 1850s might be more accurate, than in the 21st century. Threatened with dismissal if they complained, they were forced to bear pain all day, or to wear clothing that was totally unsuitable for the tasks that they were asked to perform, or to dress in a way that they felt sexualised their appearance and was demeaning.

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.

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.

Mirya R. Holman

This does mimic what conservative women have said in the past: 'You liberals think you're so enlightened but we still get people saying vile things about us.'.

Marjorie J. Spruill

There seems to be great resentment of both as power-hungry and wanting to control men.

Gillian Thomas

I think some of the reticence that might be coming across in not a huge chorus of defense of Kellyanne Conway in the face of these sexist comments is the feeling that she doesn't have our back. It's a shame. If women were more united and speaking up at this behavior, including when it's perpetrated by the left, we'd all be a lot better off.

Mirya R. Holman

To me, the 2016 election was hopefully an opportunity to be reminded that we're not in some kind of postgender society. There's a smaller set of acceptable behaviors for women.

Andrew Baumann - Global Strategy Group

Even in the end, none of Trump's numbers–was he racist or sexist or a danger to the country–improved. Which leads me to believe it was very much a backlash to Clinton. The [FBI Director James] Comey stuff really hurt her with Millennials–the people that decided in the last week or so broke pretty heavily for Trump.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke

Women must earn less because they are weaker, they are smaller, they are less intelligent. They must earn less. That is all.

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.

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.

Marian Javits

I have been encouraged by the hope that my experience will in some way mark a step forward in the historic effort to establish real professional independence among working husbands and wives.

Marian Javits

Some may feel that my withdrawal marks a retreat. I do not see it that way. Perhaps a contribution has been made by bringing the problem into sharp public focus, and that the professional rights and freedom owed to both partners in a marriage will be honored and better understood.

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.

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.

Claire Ernst

They tell me I'm a sexist racist murderer for supporting Trump. It's important to have someone like Milo to fight back.

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.

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.

Salil Shetty - Amnesty International

It was a year when a poisonous political rhetoric of 'us versus them' surged across the world. Whether it was the xenophobic and sexist rhetoric of President Trump's election campaign, European leaders' assault on the rights of refugees, President Erdogan of Turkey's massive crackdown after the attempted coup there or the so-called war on drugs in the Philippines.

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.

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.

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?

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."

Bob McDermott

We're all good, and then she gives the speech at the women's rally, which was basically an anti-Trump rally. She said our president is a sexist, is a racist, and that we have a bully in the White House. ... That is very problematic for the top elected Republican in the state.

François Deschamps

It's with pain and anger that we learn the identity of terrorist Alexandre Bissonnette, unfortunately known to many activists in Quebec for taking nationalist, pro-Le Pen and anti-feminist positions at Laval University and on social media.

Saori Baba

I think his sexist remarks in public give an impression that we women are looked down upon. I hope he won't make such comments anymore in public.

Michael Cornfield

Very few people in public life, even today, get away with what Trump was able to get away with. I wonder what these gentlemen were thinking.

Sallie Krawcheck

While I may have considered these 'courageous conversations' to be risky in the past (risky that I'd upset someone, or goodness forbid, come off as hysterical, or a raging feminist), I now believe that it is riskier not to have them. That's because if we're not having these conversations, those old gender expectations and beliefs that have in part kept us from moving forward professionally will continue on, unchallenged.

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.

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.

Ashley Judd

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

Ted Lieu

Trump -- who lost the popular vote -- has made a series of racist, sexist and bigoted statements. In addition, he has attacked Gold Star parents, veterans such as John McCain and now civil rights icon John Lewis.

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.

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.

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.'.

Snehal Velkar

In our gender awareness work, one of the issues that's been raised repeatedly by young women are being harassed by men singing inappropriate Bollywood songs. Bollywood songs are great to sing and dance to, but when you pay attention, you realize that many of them objectify and demean women. This leads to normalizing sexual harassment and violence against women.

Elizabeth Plank - Vox.com

How can being the target of a sexist attack help Clinton? It effectively chips away at her likability issue. Many women say they felt lukewarm about her, but last night they had sympathy. It's really hard not to like someone when you empathize with them.

Snehal Velkar

We want to send a message to the industry that we can have popular music without it being sexist or humiliating to women.

Sady Doyle

She just never let anyone make her smaller or less complex than she was; she owned herself, and that's one of the most important and difficult feminist projects there is.

Naomi McDougall Jones

I can't think of anything else in my lifetime where there was a woman that fierce and so much of an action hero.

Glynnis MacNichol

As a child there were so few role models for girls that were in charge of themselves and other people ... it was really unique in the landscape of movies aimed at kids. It's hard to separate the character from the actress.

Glynnis MacNichol

You can't be what you can't see. When we don't have stories [with strong women at the center] everyone suffers for it.

Sady Doyle

Carrie Fisher easily could have fit a really predictable mold – a pretty girl who played a princess in a movie once. But she always insisted on being more than that.

Barbara Seals Nevergold

What was surprising though were the direct attacks on the president and the first lady in such demeaning ways, in such tone that many have described as racist and as sexist, and so those are the comments I am most concerned about because of the messages they send to our children.

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.

Jill Kelley

Paula Broadwell's stalking brought months of unwanted terror to my innocent family, not to mention the national security breaches she created by her anonymous emails to our most senior generals by illegally accessing General Petraeus' government emails – based on her irrational & sexist suspicions. Of course she wants to 'move on' after she ruined countless careers and reputations of the victims she stalked because her affair ended.

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.

Joel Wong

Men who have trouble asking for directions when they're lost, that's a classic example of self-reliance.

Joel Wong

Some of these sexist masculine norms, like being a playboy and power over women, aren't just a social injustice, but they are also potentially bad for your mental health.

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.

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.

Emma Watson

As part of my work with UN Women, I have started reading as many books and essays about equality as I can get my hands on. There is so much amazing stuff out there! Funny, inspiring, sad, thought-provoking, empowering! I've been discovering so much that, at times, I've felt like my head was about to explode… I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too.

Barack Obama

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

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.

Hillary Clinton

What Trump has done is to make it possible for people who have racist and sexist and all kinds of prejudices and bigotry to put them right out there. But what he's done really [is] unleashed a lot of darkness and divisiveness.

Hillary Clinton

What Trump has done is to make it possible for people who had racist, sexist and all kinds of prejudices and bigotry to put them right out there. I'm not going to be able to wave a magic wand and change everybody's thoughts.

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.

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.

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.

Aunjanue Ellis

It also breaks my heart that there are a contingency, or a community, of folks who are going to stay home because they feel like to see it would be anti-feminist. They feel that they have to stand in solidarity with the woman who was abused, and I understand that wholly.

Donna Brazile

There is no accountability for Donald Trump in the -- in the ridiculous and sexist things that he has said and racist things that he has said over the past few years.

Donna Brazile

There is no accountability for Donald Trump in the - in the ridiculous and sexist things that he has said and racist things that he has said over the past few years.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it.

Donald J. Trump

… She called these Americans every name in the book – racist, sexist, xenophobic, Islamophobic – she said they were not even American…. Never in history has a major-party presidential candidate so viciously demonized the American voter.

Hillary Clinton

To be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic–you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Hillary Clinton

You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic - you name it.

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic - you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Hillary Clinton

To just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic -- you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.

Hillary Clinton

Questlove Gomez

These acts against Leslie Jones ... Are sickening. It's racist & sexist. It's disgusting. This is hate crimes. This ain't 'kids joshing round.

John Inverdale

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

Ben White

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

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'?

Andy Murray

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

Katinka Hosszu

It was an amazing experience to share this moment with someone who I love.

Kim Kardashian

I love to support other women, but I'm not the free-the-nipple type girl. ... Just, like, no hate. That's my thing.

Kim Kardashian

Then coming back and then my daughter wakes up, having to feed her. You know it's like I have three people that I have to take care of. I don't think that I am. I don't like labels. I just think I do what makes me happy and I want women to be confident and I'm so supportive of women.

Harry M. Reid

This shouldn't be hard. Donald Trump is a sexist and racist man who insults Gold Star parents, stokes fear of Muslims and sows hatred of Latinos. He should not be president and Republican leaders have a moral responsibility to say so?

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.

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.

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].

Michelle Obama

When you hear the smack talking... It's easy to brush that off because I know who I am.

Barack Obama

We have to celebrate it, but we have to remember that progress is not inevitable. It's the result of slow, tireless, often frustrating and unheralded work. It would help if we had more women in the corner suite.

Teresa Younger

My concern is always that people think we will have reached full equality if we have a woman running as a major party candidate. We did not become a post-racist society after President Obama was elected. We will not become a post-feminist society if Hillary Clinton is elected.

Vince Powers

Donald Trump is radioactive. He is a sexist and a racist. He praises tyrants. He criticizes our NATO allies. Every day since he's been declared the winner, I've had Republicans coming up to me, saying, I'm voting for the Democrat.

Rui Falcão

The PT will not give a possible Temer government any peace. Our opposition will go far beyond Congress. We are telling society that an illegitimate government will have no peace, there will be a fight.

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.

Steve Simon

The WTA stands on its own and was founded on the principles of equality and empowerment. I am proud of all the strong athletes on the WTA who put in hard work and sacrifice every single day. Tennis as a whole is enriched by the contributions and accomplishments of every player, both female and male.

Eric Van Hove

Young people are working with traditional crafts, re-using them, re-learning them. I'm have been learning how to sew and weave since I left Morocco. And also the place of craft in the history of civil movements, civil rights movements, or in feminist movements or in gay rights has always been very important- you know, all these considered low-arts- the crafts.

Vanessa Williams - The Washington Post

I think he needs to figure out how to counter the narrative that he is sexist. The record is out there, some of the comments he has made about women in the past, in the recent past, as a matter of fact. One thing is that he hasn't been very specific about what he would do with regard to issues that are important to women.

Michelle Payne

My sister Margaret and I both had a feeling we would win this race. It's such a chauvinistic sport, a lot of the owners wanted to kick me off.

Michelle Payne

Everyone else can get stuffed (who) think women aren't good enough.

Luana Mesquita

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

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).

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

We think that in France there is the situation, if men have money, if men have power, law is not for him and that's why we came from Ukraine to France to support French women to say that we are together with them and that we fight against crazy men like DSK.

Andrei Yudin - Stylist

Even without any make-up they look astonishing. I just do it for the sake of touching a beautiful face one more time.

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.

Christine Delphy

The voters really want to look as though they are doing something without actually having to make any effort. Look what just happened with Osez le féminisme (Dare to be feminist) – and I'm not against it – They got the word 'mademoiselle' or 'Miss' taken off official documents. Now there's a good reform, because it doesn't cost anything. All you do is take a line off the form. You even save ink.

Inna Shevchenko - Femen

We are today here to announce that fascism, a fascist epidemic is spreading all over. Today we are starting our international campaign, there are activists who are coming from all over Europe today to participate in this action. We are announcing that we start our treatment of this fascist epidemic, we know how to treat it, we have an effective plan.

Oleksandra Shevchenko - Femen

They threatened them with a knife and later cut off their hair. Then they beat them up and left them naked in the forest, without their belongings, clothes, money, phones or documents.

Oxana Shachko

Then they told us to take our clothes off from the waist down and to turn around. This was the most horrible moment because we thought they're going to rape us now.

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.

Barack Obama

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

Jose Manuel Barroso - European Commission

The EU calls for a reform of laws inherited from the previous regime, particularly in the criminal code to ensure freedom of speech for Tunisian men and women.

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.
