sexes

A Quote by Susan Brownell Anthony on comradeship and sexes

The day will come when men will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race.

Susan B. Anthony (1820 - 1906)

A Quote by Jesus on jesus, salome, thomas, one, god, student, disciple, equality, and sexes

Salome said, “Who are you, sir, to say you come from the One, when you climbed (up).. and ate from my table?” Jesus said to her, “I am from the balance of Unity. I received that which belongs to my father/mother. I am your student! Because of this I say, Whoever is unified will be full of light but whoever is divided is full of darkness."

A Quote by Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. on books, sexes, slavery, society, war, and women

Our statute books gradually became laden with gross, stereotyped distinctions between the sexes and, indeed, throughout much of the 19th century the position of women in our society was, in many respects, comparable to that of blacks under the pre-Civil War slave codes.

A Quote by Olive Emilie Scheider on men, men and women, sexes, and women

I object to anything that divides the two sexes. My main point is this: human development has now reached a point at which sexual difference has become a thing of altogether minor importance. We make too much of it; we are men and women in the second place, human beings in the first.

A Quote by Naomi Weisstein on clarity, men, men and women, questions, reflection, respect, sexes, and women

Except for their genitals, I don't know what immutable differences exist between men and women. Perhaps there are some other unchangeable differences; probably there are a number of irrelevant differences. But it is clear that until social expectations for men and women are equal, until we provide equal respect for both sexes, answers to this question will simply reflect our prejudices.

A Quote by John Donne on death, love, sexes, and wit

The Phoenix riddle hath more wit By us, we two being one, are it. So to one neutral thing both sexes fit, We die and rise the same, and prove Mysterious by this love.
