"As a young girl, I was sexually precocious with poor boundaries. I hung around with strange older men because I wanted their attention, and thusly, their love. As a young adult, I drank and used drugs to the point of blackout, went strange places with strange people, walked alone late at night without my wits about me.    Still, the only times I was raped were when the man I was with was a rapist." ---Emily of XO Jane, on her Project Unbreakable submission

"There has been a lot of effort to demonize the word 'feminist.' I think that being a feminist means that you see the world whole instead instead of half. It shouldn't need a name and one day it won't. Feminism starts out being very simple, it starts out being the instinct of the little child who says 'it's not fair' and 'you are not the boss of me.' It's something in us who knows that. And it ends up being a worldview that questions hierarchy altogether." - Gloria Steinem

I made a conscious decision when I was very young not to live in fear, it is a constant source of strength and serenity.

"When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty." - Stevie Nicks
