The Women Are Coming!  The Women Are Coming!

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007 • No Comments on The Women Are Coming!  The Women Are Coming!

March is National Women’s History Month and it’s also the 30th anniversary of the Women’s Center at Old Dominion University and the Women’s Center has scheduled an eclectic array of feminists to celebrate both.  Here’s where I’ll be in the coming weeks (along with some quotes):

Margaret Cho, March 16:
“I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me. And it has nothing to do with what I look like really, it is just that I gave myself the power to say that I am beautiful, and if I could do that, maybe there is hope for them too. And the great divide between the beautiful and the ugly will cease to be. Because we are all what we choose.”

Gloria Steinem, March 21:
“I’ve yet to be on a campus where most women weren’t worrying about some aspect of combining marriage, children, and a career. I’ve yet to find one where many men were worrying about the same thing.”

And one that I really identify with:
“Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else.”

Guerrilla Girls, March 30:
“Pop Quiz
Q. If February is Black History Month and March is Women’s History Month, what happens the rest of the year?
A.  Discrimination.”
