so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me.
- Isabel Allende

Feminism is dated? Yes, for privileged women like my
daughter and all of us here today,
but not for most of our sisters in the rest of the
world who are still forced into premature marriage,
prostitution, forced labor - they have children that
they don't want or they cannot feed.
- Isabel Allende
