Me & Jane Fonda

"For feminists, a belief system is the enemy, not men."

"As the Indian sage Kristnamurti said, 'You think you are thinking your thoughts, you are not; you are thinking the culture’s thoughts.' "

These are two quotes from a piece written by Jane Fonda about how she came to understand feminism rather than assuming it was a distraction from the "real" problems of the world. Good article, Jane. 

Me, I became a feminist on the day I looked around at the boys in my Grade 6 class and thought, "Them, superior to me? I think not!"
