One of the greatest gifts of Black feminism to ourselves has been to make it a little easier simply to be Black and female.
There's just as many different kinds of feminism as there are women in the world.
Since I loved underground music, I tried to carve a space for feminism within it. Those were my hopes.
I'm not a goddess, for crying out loud. I'm a regular person who took feminism - which I have a deep connection to - and mixed it with music, which I really love to do.
I think of feminism as a socially just and imaginative world.
Feminism is very much a part of a lot of my student's lives, but they're not going to march about it or take a public political stance. And I think more and more young women are claiming that they're not feminists - even though they are.
I think feminism has had a major impact on anthropology.
I think it was really entering my 30s that I began to embrace feminism and call myself a feminist.
Women's behavior in handling beauty, even before feminism, was to deny they had any. Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
It's tragic when people think feminism is a dirty word.
I'm a feminist; I grew up with feminism, but I also think there's a way in which we need to shake things up so that we can push it further and in other directions.
Like many traditional feminists, I became one of the boys, only better. For a while it gave me a buzz to win at their game, but ultimately, that kind of power just goes nowhere. Traditional feminism excludes men and so perpetuates conflict. I am not interested in warring about power.
The fact is, feminism is not what it used to be.
Feminism is hated because women are hated. Anti-feminism is a direct expression of misogyny; it is the political defense of women hating.
Feminism is rooted in racial rights and gender rights, and all of those things intersect, and to say that that's not something you can stand behind - it confuses me. I think it's a really great word.
