Mallika Sarabhai - View from the Bridge

Mallika Sarabhai - View from the Bridge: "One of the attributes of a victor is that he assumes that anything that happens in the world happens in relation to him, either for him or against him, but with him in mind anyway. Judging from this attribute, the male has won. Why else would a male figure in the understanding of the word feminism?

“Oh, so you are a man hating feminist hm?” I am often asked, more often than not by men, but not infrequently by women. Curbing my irritation, and the slight disdainful curling of my lip, I retort, “My being a feminist has nothing to do with men”."
