Words from a Feminist: Winifred Holtby

by Cheryl Wollner

Winifred Holtby (1898-1935), a British author and ardent feminist during her short life, reminds us why we are feminists and writers:

I am a feminist because I dislike everything that feminism implies. I desire an end to the whole business, the demands for equality, the suggestion of sex warfare, the very name feminist. I want to be about the work in which my real interests lie, the writing of novels and so forth. But while inequality exists, while injustice is done and opportunity denied to the great majority of women, I shall have to be a feminist. And I shan’t be happy till I get…a society in which there is no respect for persons, either male or female, but a supreme regard for the importance of the human being.

Keep doing the great work that you do.
