'I've been trying to find women writers for my staff for a while now and I have three women on my staff and three guys so it's pretty equal. I don't know why that is. It's been the same thing for a while. It's hard for female comedians to stand out. That's'

Ellen DeGeneres


'Comedy can be, especially in a writer's room, really aggressive, kind of a very male-dominated room, and it would be hard for women. It's not a nurturing place. It's not like a lot of women are going to say, I can't wait to live that lifestyle and be in a'

Albert Ellis


'There's a lot of thought in art. People get to talk about important things. There's a lot of sex, you know, in art. There's a lot of naked women and men, and there's intrigue, there's fakery. It's a real microcosm of the larger world.'

Steve Martin


'A lot of women these days, a lot of young women don't want to call themselves feminists. You have this cheap, hideous 'girl power' sort of fad, which I think is pretty benign at best, but at worst, I think it's a way of taking the politics out of feminism'

Scott Adams


'I think that the day you've figured out the differences between women and men is the day that you're no longer attracted to women. It's the difference that is so fantastic and frustrating and angering, and really sexy.'

Gilbert Parker


'While gossip among women is universally ridiculed as low and trivial, gossip among men, especially if it is about women, is called theory, or idea, or fact.'

Andrea Dworkin


'When I get up and work out, I'm working out just as much for my girls as I am for me, because I want them to see a mother who loves them dearly, who invests in them, but who also invests in herself. It's just as much about letting them know as young women'

Michelle Obama

Vanessa Marcil


'Make women rational creatures, and free citizens, and they will quickly become good wives - that is, if men do not neglect the duties of husbands and fathers.'

Mary Wollstonecraft

Debbie Wasserman Schultz


'Women who marry early are often overly enamored of the kind of man who looks great in wedding pictures and passes the maid of honor his telephone number.'

Anna Quindlen


'Women's liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It's men who are discriminated against. They can't bear children. And no one is likely to do anything about that.'

Golda Meir


'I'm not particularly a feminist, but if you get women off the animal cycle of reproduction and give them some say in how many children they'll have, immediately the floor will rise.'

Christopher Hitchens


'If you look at any Muslim society and you make a scale of how developed they are, and how successful the economy is, it's a straight line. It depends on how much they emancipate their women.'

Alanis Morissette

Ann Coulter


'I think all women in Hollywood are known as sex symbols. That's what our purpose is in this business. You're merchandised, you're a product. You're sold and it's based on sex. But that's okay. I think women should be empowered by that, not degraded.'

Julie Burchill


'Make no mistake, most women are well aware that they've never had it so good when they enter a spa or salon, it is purely a hair/nails thing, a prelude to an evening of guilt-free fun.'

Julie Burchill


'Now that women are jockeys, baseball umpires, atomic scientists, and business executives, maybe someday they can master parallel parking.'

Bill Vaughan

Maurice Sendak


'These women whose antics we smirk at good-naturedly in the pap-traps put themselves out there at least partly on their beauty they are in showbiz, and showing what they've got is part of their business as much as it is for male show-ponies from the Chippe'

Julie Burchill


'In individual industries where female labour pays an important role, any movement advocating better wages, shorter working hours, etc., would not be doomed from the start because of the attitude of those women workers who are not organized.'

Clara Zetkin


'No one knows 'men' as such, any more than anyone knows 'women,' and if they do generalise they're probably trying to hide their own ignorance. You might know one 'man,' yes, or even lots of individual 'men'.'

Julie Burchill


'Most women are dissatisfied with their appearance - it's the stuff that fuels the beauty and fashion industries.'

Annie Lennox

Annie Lennox


'It's hard to tell how far women's individuality has come in the past twenty years.'

Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero


'Men need to understand, and women too, what feminism is really about.'

Annie Lennox


'They say I can open movies, and that's nice in that it puts into people's minds that women can do it. It's not just Kevin Costner, not just Arnold Schwarzenegger. Not just the guys.'

Julia Roberts


'It's unfortunate that we live in such a panicked, dysmorphic society where women don't even give themselves a chance to see what they'll look like as older persons. I want to have some idea of what I'll look like before I start cleaning the slates.'

Julia Roberts


'Women being pitted each other another in Hollywood is an old tactic, but it's not real at all.'

Shirley MacLaine

Marilyn French


'In New York, if you weigh under 200 pounds and decline so much as a cookie at a co-worker's party, women will flock to your side, assuring you of your appealing physique. This is how skittish we are about the dangers of anorexia and the pressures of body '

Sloane Crosley


'Childbearing is glorified in part because women die from it.'

Andrea Dworkin


'The common erotic project of destroying women makes it possible for men to unite into a brotherhood this project is the only firm and trustworthy groundwork for cooperation among males and all male bonding is based on it.'

Andrea Dworkin


'America's finest - our men and women in uniform, are a force for good throughout the world, and that is nothing to apologize for.'

Sarah Palin

Dee Dee Myers


'If women are expected to do the same work as men, we must teach them the same things.'

Doris Lessing


'Respecting other people's cultures is well and good, but I draw the line at where some branches of Islam, what they do to women. It's indefensible.'

Jello Biafra


'All my friends' mothers were appalling women.'

Doris Lessing


'I will say that the idea of a woman being deceptive came from that original discussion with critics and reporters about if woman could do that kind of thing. Evelyn, herself, grew out of the discussions about how capable women are of deceit and lying and '

Anne Lamott


'Let's stop pretending we can arrest our way to safety and security. Despite all the fine work that policemen and women do, we have got to find other solutions to deter crime.'

Cher


'Breast cancer deaths in America have been declining for more than a decade. Much of that success is due to early detection and better treatments for women. I strongly encourage women to get a mammogram.'

Deidre Hall


'I grew up in a family where the women were just nuts. They didn't stand around in cardigans making polite conversation while they chopped tomatoes.'

Nadia Giosia


'I think I am really irreverent and I pretty much just talk to and about men the way men talk to and about women.'

Kesha


'I had very supportive parents that made the way for me, even at a time when there were very few women - no women, really maybe two or three women - and very few, fewer than that, African-American women heading in this direction, so there were very few peo'

Martha Plimpton


'I feel sorry... for people who've had skinny privilege and then have it taken away from them. I have had a lifetime to adjust to seeing how people treat women who aren't their idea of beautiful and therefore aren't their idea of useful, and I had to find '

Clare Boothe Luce


'Women know what men have long forgotten. The ultimate economic and spiritual unit of any civilization is still the family.'

Louisa May Alcott


'Only the most unapologetic biblical fundamentalists, for instance, take every biblical injunction literally. If we all took all scripture at the same level of authority, then we would be more open to slavery, to the subjugation of women, to wider use of s'

Jon Meacham


'It's very hard for a woman in comedy. It's hard for women to be bold and not care what anyone, particularly men, think. Maybe that is why so many women comics are lesbians.'
