“Real radicalism implores us to tell the whole ugly truth, even when it is inconvenient. To own the hurt and the pain. To own our shit, too. To think about it systemically and collectively, but never to diminish the import of the trauma.”
Brittney Cooper, Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower

“I love being a woman and being a friend to other women,' should be feminism's tagline.”
Brittney Cooper, Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower

“One of feminism’s biggest failures is its failure to insist that feminism is, first and foremost, about truly, deeply, and unapologetically loving women.”
Brittney Cooper, Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower
