Madeleine M. Kunin

William Arthur Ward

Voluntary exchange is more moral than forced redistribution.
Segregation is that which is forced upon an inferior by a superior. Separation is done voluntarily by two equals.

Women should not be forced to accept sexual harassment as the price of admission to a life and career in the political world. They should not have to endure unwanted touching, innuendo, and propositioning from men in positions of power.
J. B. Pritzker

Gael Garcia Bernal
