A quote I love

Rebecca West - the novelist and long term lover of the married H G Wells - commented on feminism as follows:

I myself have never been able to find out what feminism is; I only know that people call me a feminist when I express sentiments which differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.


  1. Love it!
