Quote of the Day: Agony


“Many women, I think, resist feminism because it is an agony to be fully conscious of the brutal misogyny which permeates culture, society, and all personal relationships.”  — Andrea Dworkin

For me awareness is not agony. I think it’s worse to go through life vaguely bothered by what’s going on around me but not knowing why, and possibly blaming myself for feeling bad about it. Feminism lets me know that oppression doesn’t come from me and isn’t my fault.
