What Inspires Me: Gloria Steinem

13256008_10155004641479762_5445005361616120898_nI went and saw Gloria Steinem speak last month about her autobiographical new book “My Life on the Road” and she was phenomenally inspirational!

Gloria is someone I aspire to live my life like (speaking up and living her life according to her own rules) and these were some of her quotes which resonated with me that night:

“WE are the women our parents warned us about.”

“Not everyone has to live the same way. Imagine that.”

“We are not crazy. The system is crazy.”

“Racism and sexism might both be supremacist crimes, because you get nothing out of it but dominance.”

“The single greatest failing of feminism is that we’ve been too nice.”

Gloria Steinem – May 16th 2016, Melbourne Australia
