"Sometimes a mom will come up to me and say her teenage daughter doesn't know who I am. I don't care if she knows who I am. I care if she knows who she is." On reality television - "Women are portrayed as ornaments. The media shapes our views of what we can be. ... I'm not trying to demonize these people. I don't know the Kardashians or Snooki. But what is going to happen to Snooki later in life?" -Gloria Steinem
