Born Feminist: Katherine Spillar, a Woman Who’s Made a Difference

Born Feminist: Katherine Spillar, a Woman Who’s Made a Difference | Dare To Be A Feminist | Scoop.it

An interview with the executive vice president of the Feminist Majority Foundation and executive editor of Ms. Magazine, who has spent 26 years working to achieve women's equality.

...I think I was born a feminist. Both of my parents were physicians, and from my earliest memories I heard abut how—in the early sixties, and on into the seventies—my mother had struggled to get into medical school and be respected in a very male-dominated world.

I don’t remember a moment when I wasn’t aware that women and girls are treated by society as the lesser sex. In my very egalitarian household, I was constantly hearing, “Girls can do anything they want. There’s nothing that will hold you back.” But I was keenly aware how sexist the textbooks were back then [Spillar is 58], and of the many opportunities denied to women.
