The Historical Birthday-Tea Party 29th January


Today’s birthday belongs to Robin Morgan, who is my first living invitee to the party. I did consider keeping it strictly historical, but she had and has such a big impact it seemed unreasonable to leave her out.

Robin is the editor of Sisterhood is Powerful, (1970) one of those books that change the world, kicked of the feminist movement in the US, and had a certain impact on me!

I’m not going to say a lot about Robin, you can read her work, but here are a smattering of quotes to get you thinking – she tells it like it is.

Pornography is the theory, and rape the practice.

There’s something contagious about demanding freedom.

Women are not inherently passive or peaceful.  We’re not inherently anything but human.
