“Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke . . . She will need her sisterhood.” ― Gloria Steinem - Feminism

Yet women and men are both equal. Women's rights are human rights. We aren't separate species!
