Feminism has fought no wars. It has killed no opponents. It has set up no concentration camps, starved no enemies, practiced no cruelties. Its battles have been for education, for the vote, for better working conditions, for safety on the streets, for child care, for social welfare, for rape crisis clinics, women’s refuges, reforms in the laws. If someone says, “Oh, I’m not a feminist”, I ask, “Why? What’s your problem?” (Dale Spender)
