Famous quotes containing the word male:

    We have seen over and over that white male historians in general have tended to dismiss any history they didn’t themselves write, on the grounds that it is unserious, unscholarly, a fad, too “political,” “merely” oral and thus unreliable.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    The world’s male chivalry has perished out,
    But women are knights-errant to the last;
    And, if Cervantes had been greater still,
    He had made his Don a Donna.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)

    ...I am who I am because I’m a black female.... When I was health director in Arkansas ... I could talk about teen-age pregnancy, about poverty, ignorance and enslavement and how the white power structure had imposed it—only because I was a black female. I mean, black people would have eaten up a white male who said what I did.
    Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
