“I used to believe that my feminist politics would make me strong. I thought strong thoughts. I held strong beliefs. I thought that would protect me. But all it did was make me aware of how badly I slipped when I lowered my voice and apologized for having a divergent opinion. For all my right thinking I did not fight back. But I have learned something. I’ve learned it takes practice to be a strong feminist….It was nice to grow up thinking this was an equal world. But it’s not….And it’s amazing what you can see when you are not hiding behind the warm, fuzzy glow of past feminist victories. It does not make me popular in the office. It does not even make me popular with women. –Ellen Neuborne “Imagine my surprise”
