“Expecting me to grovel,
she carefully covers both feet
with the hem of her skirt.
She pretends to hide
a coming smile
and wont look straight at me.
When I talk to her,
she chats with her friend
in cross tones.
Even this slim girls rising anger
let alone her deep love.”
—Amaru (c. seventh century A.D.)
“I dont think Americas the center of the world anymore. I think African women will lead the way [in] ... womens liberation ...

Shes not afraid that if she speaks up, her man will say goodbye to her.”
—Faith Ringgold (b. 1934)

“The trade of advertising is now so near perfection that it is not easy to propose any improvement. But as every art ought to be exercised in due subordination to the public good, I cannot but propose it as a moral question to these masters of the public ear, whether they do not sometimes play too wantonly with our passions.”
—Samuel Johnson (17091784)
