"Women feel more guilt than men, not because of some weird chromosomal issue but because they have a history of being blamed for other people’s behavior. You get hit, you must have annoyed someone; you get raped, you must have excited someone; your kid is a junkie, you must have brought him up wrong." — Germaine Greer, Guilt Poisons Women
Germaine Greer: b. 1939; Germaine Greer is an Australian academic and journalist, and was a major feminist voice of the mid-20th century. Greer's ideas have created controversy ever since her book The Female Eunuch became an international best-seller in 1970. Greer has defined her goal as "women's liberation" as distinct from "equality with men". She asserts that women's liberation meant embracing gender differences in a positive fashion.
