Sexism is the foundation on which all tyranny is built. Every social form of hierarchy and abuse is modeled on male-over-female domination.

A Quote by Andrea Dworkin on caring, jealousy, preparation, suicide, violence, and women

We have a double standard, which is to say, a man can show how much he cares by being violent-see, he's jealous, he cares-a woman shows how much she cares by how much she's willing to be hurt; by how much she will take; how much she will endure; how suicidal she's prepared to be.

A Quote by Andrea Dworkin on familiarity, fear, time, and women

By the time we are women, fear is as familiar to us as air; it is our element. We live in it, we inhale it, we exhale it, and most of the time we do not even notice it. Instead of "I am afraid," we say, "I don't want to," or "I don't know how," or "I can't."

A Quote by Andrea Dworkin on beginning, conviction, discrimination, and politics

Genocide begins, however improbably, in the conviction that classes of biological distinction indisputably sanction social and political discrimination.

A Quote by Andrea Dworkin on freedom, justice, learning, men, struggle, support, understanding, violence, and women

Men who want to support women in our struggle for freedom and justice should understand that it is not terrifically important to us that they learn to cry; it is important to us that they stop the crimes of violence against us.
