Thursday Quote: Ann Snitow

People assumed that feminism was a hit against heterosexual sex;

But for a lot of us, it was exactly the opposite, especially for heterosexual women like me.

Feeling powerful, feeling alive, feeling in possession of my own life was so sexy, and it made me able to represent myself to men and imagine relationships with them that were completely different from the kind of abjection that was typical’.
