“Men’s need to dominate women may be based in their own sense of marginality or emptiness; we do not know its root, and men are making no effort to discover it.”

Marilyn French (1929-2009) var en amerikansk forfatter, professor i engelsk og feminist, der udtalte at: “My goal in life is to change the entire social and economic structure of Western civilization, to make it a feminist world”. Hun gjorde sit bedste, men som vi ved, så lykkedes hendes projekt ikke.
