Gender Quotations

Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
Kofi Annan

Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture.
Charlotte Bunch

Nelson Mandela

True equality means holding everyone accountable in the same way, regardless of race, gender, faith, ethnicity - or political ideology.
Monica Crowley

We act as if that being of a man or that being of a woman is actually an internal reality or something that is simply true about us, a fact about us, but actually it's a phenomenon that is being produced all the time and reproduced all the time, so to say gender is performative is to say that nobody really is a gender from the start.
Judith Butler
