786 – Joss Whedon on Gender Equality

“Equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this Earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and women who’s confronted with it. We need equality, kinda now.”

–Joss Whedon

775 – “They talk about a woman’s sphere as though it had a limit; There’s not a place in Earth or Heaven, There’s not a task to mankind given, There’s not a blessing or a woe, There’s not a whispered yes or no, There’s not a life, or death, or birth, That has a feather’s weight or worth—Without a woman in it.”

–C E Bowman
