The Women’s Right’s Manifesto

I came across this again recently. I had forgotten all about it, but someone posted it on a slutwalk page. It’s great.


The Women’s Right’s Manifesto

Because woman’s work is never done
and is underpaid
or unpaid
or boring
or repetitious
and we’re the first to get fired
and what we look like is more important than what we do
and if we get raped it’s our fault
and if we get beaten we must have provoked it
and if we raise our voices we’re nagging bitches
and if we enjoy sex we’re nymphos
and if we don’t we’re frigid
and if we love women
it’s because we can’t get a “real” man
and if we ask our doctor too many questions
we’re neurotic and/or pushy
and if we expect childcare we’re selfish
and if we stand up for our rights we’re aggressive
and “unfeminine”
and if we don’t we’re typical weak females
and if we want to get married we’re out to trap a man
and if we don’t we’re unnatural
and because we still can’t get an adequate safe contraceptive
but men can walk on the moon
and if we can’t cope
or don’t want a pregnancy
we’re made to feel guilty about abortion
and…for lots of other reasons we are part of the women’s liberation movement.
