“As different as we all are, there’s one thing most young women have in common: We’re all brought up to feel like there’s something wrong with us. We’re too fat. We’re dumb. We’re too smart. We’re not ladylike enough – ‘stop cursing, chewing with your mouth open, speaking your mind’. We’re too slutty. We’re not slutty enough.
You’re not too fat. You’re not too loud. You’re not too smart. You’re not unladylike. There is nothing wrong with you.”
― Jessica Valenti, Full Frontal Feminism
This is one of my favorite quotes about being a woman. Jessica Valenti writes some awesome books about feminism too along with other issues. I highly recommend her 🙂
