I propose to use whatever authority exists in the office of the President to end segregation in the District of Columbia, including the Federal Government, and any segregation in the Armed Forces.
Annual Message to the Congress on the State of the Union (2 February 1953).
Girls need to know that being a feminist is a good thing. It doesn’t mean that you hate men. It means equal rights. If you’re doing the same job, you should be compensated and treated in the same way.Charlize Theron
[I] can’t actually imagine a time in which the need for more diversity would ever cease. Affirmative action has been an issue since segregation practices. The question is not when does it end, but when does it begin [...] When do people of color truly get the benefits to which they are entitled?eric holder
Pornography has been so thickly glossed over with the patina of chic these days in the name of verbal freedom and sophisication… Part of the problem is that those who traditionally have been the most vigorous opponents of porn are often those same people who shudder at the explicit mention of any sexual subject… There can be no equality in porn, no female equivalent, no turning of the tables in the name of bawdy fun. Pornography, like rape, is a male invention, desgined to dehumanize women… Pornography is the undiluted essence of anti-female propoganda.Susan Brownmiller
All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.george orwell
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.malcolm (malcolm little) x
Our flag is red, white and blue, but our nation is a rainbow -- red, yellow, brown, black and white and we are all precious in God's sight? America is not like a blanket -- one piece of unbroken cloth, the same color, the same texture, the same size. America is more like a quilt -- many patches, many pieces, many colors, many sizes; all woven and held together by a common thread.jesse jackson
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. We here highly resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.Abraham Lincoln
Legislation to apply the principle of equal pay for equal work without discrimination because of sex is a matter of simple justice.
It is a wise man who said that there is no greater inequality than the equal treatment of unequals.
For if all things were equally in all men, nothing would be prized.thomas hobbes
La majestueuse égalité des lois, qui interdit au riche comme au pauvre de coucher sous les ponts, de mendier dans les rues et de voler du pain.
Fourscore and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.Abraham Lincoln
For some must follow, and some command Though all are made of clay!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Equality is the life of conversation; and he is as much out who assumes to himself any part above another, as he who considers himself below the rest of the society.richard steele
It is not true that equality is a law of nature. Nature has made nothing equal; her sovereign law is subordination and dependence.
[E]quality is not the empirical claim that all groups of humans are interchangeable; it is the moral principle that individuals should not be judged or constrained by the average properties of their group. … If we recognize this principle, no one has to spin myths about the indistinguishability of the sexes to justify equality.
Dogs look up to you, cats look down on you. Give me a pig! He looks you in the eye and treats you as an equal.
For the colonel's lady an' Judy O'Grady, Are sisters under their skins.rudyard kipling
The trickling rain doth fall Upon us one and all; The south-wind kisses The saucy milkmaid's cheek, The nun's, demure and meek, Nor any misses.edmund clarence stedman
