Feminist Quote of the Day: What Women Think

"Women gave birth to everyone on this planet. No one, no one on this planet didn't come through a woman. It makes me furious that people don't seem to care what women think."
-- Jane Campion, Director of Bright Star

Jane Campion's remarks were made at the home of Gloria Steinem. Ms. Campion is the one and "only female director to win the Palm D'or at the Cannes Film Festival," and she is "one of only three women — out of 396 people — ever nominated for a Best Director Oscar. No woman has ever won."
