I had both male and female heroes.
And it's absolutely true that male sexual behaviour and female responses to male demands change a lot when they start communicating - and the levels of the communication that I've seen on the ground in very, very poor areas are so high and I think why don't we have that here?
Males inform how often intercourse takes place and whether or not condoms are used. Males can influence how the female feels about pregnancy, whether or not she'll have an abortion, and how the baby will be raised once it's born. And yet our work is one of the first of its kind because we focus on males, while most adolescent pregnancy work has focused only on females and their attitudes on pregnancy.
After centuries of conditioning of the female into the condition of perpetual girlishness called femininity, we cannot remember what femaleness is. Though feminists have been arguing for years that there is a self-defining female energy, and a female libido that is not expressed merely in response to demands by the male, and a female way of being and of experiencing the world, we are still not close to understanding what it might be. Yet every mother who has held a girl child in her arms has known that she was different from a boy child and that she would approach the reality around her in a different way. She is a female and she will die female, and though many centuries should pass, archaeologists would identify her skeleton as the remains of a female creature.
Modesty used to be considered a natural female attribute. No more.
Being the boss anywhere is lonely. Being a female boss in a world of mostly men is especially so.
In inquiring concerning the benefits of the plan proposed, I shall proceed upon the supposition that female seminaries will be patronized throughout our country.
Marriage has a unique place because it speaks of an absolute faithfulness, a covenant between radically different persons, male and female; and so it echoes the absolute covenant of God with his chosen, a covenant between radically different partners.
Michael Taylor is not being executed for homicide. Michael Taylor is being executed for raping a white female.
I think that freshness and that innocence is something that is missing from a lot of female singers. I'm certainly not denying that I'm young, but I'm not fluff.
I hate female men.
One of the greatest gifts of Black feminism to ourselves has been to make it a little easier simply to be Black and female.
There are many men - such as those often to be found among the Indians - who are refined until they have qualities often attributed to the female sex. Yet they are men, and strong ones.
It is time to effect a revolution in female manners - time to restore to them their lost dignity. It is time to separate unchangeable morals from local manners.
Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind obedience.
For much of the female half of the world, food is the first signal of our inferiority. It lets us know that our own families may consider female bodies to be less deserving, less needy, less valuable.
If women are supposed to be less rational and more emotional at the beginning of our menstrual cycle when the female hormone is at its lowest level, then why isn't it logical to say that, in those few days, women behave the most like the way men behave all month long?
I think there are more female characters in videogames now but I also think that's because videogames in general are more diverse now.
Three people died, two male and one female. They had serious injuries from machete cuts. There were also gunshot wounds.
We form bonds. It's a very female bonding kind of dance.
The scars on a female soldier's face, which someone engraved yesterday with broken glass, may heal. The ugly national scars that opened will no longer be possible to sweep under the rug.
I saw the female drop to the ground and start screaming. She got back up and I saw a large male, clench his fist and punch the female twice in the face.
The female bond, I have to say.
The gap between male and female [in terms of literacy] has grown smaller over the years. There are currently some 25 percent more women who are illiterate. In the age group of 45 years and above, however, about 60 percent more women are illiterate than men.
