“Maybe this is because feminism, unlike almost every other social movement, is not a struggle against any distinct oppressor–it’s not the ruling class, or the occupiers or the colonizers. It’s against a deeply held set of beliefs and assumptions that we women, far too often, hold ourselves. And perhaps this is the ultimate gift of feminism, so that the personal is, in fact, the political.”
