"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.
Women live lives of continual apology. They are born and raised to take the blame for other people's behavior. If they are treated without respect, they tell themselves that they have failed to earn respect. If their husbands do not fancy them, it is because they are unattractive. Germaine Greer
"Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.", Germaine Greer
