Women's rights is not only an abstraction, a cause; it is also a personal affair. It is not only about "us"; it is also about me and you. Just the two of us.
Toni Morrison (b. 1931), African American fiction writer and essayist. As quoted in Ms. magazine, p. 42 (September 1979).
From a May 1979 commencement address at Barnard College. Morrison was commenting on women's unkindness and unhelpfulness toward one another.
