Amiel, Barbara  
The feminist reign of terror in Canada is such that it is better to proceed with charges of sexual assault that are patently false than risk feminist wrath if support is withdrawn from a so-called victim... As evidentiary procedure changes to create kangaroo courts for accused males, our female judges, female Crown attorneys and female elites remain mostly silent.

Jul. 11, 1994 - from a column in Maclean's Magazine
By now our institutions have been so affected by radical FEMINISM that it is hard to know how to countermand their grip on our lives. The first step, I should think, must be to identify what we are fighting. The civil service, the judiciary, academia, and the publicly owned media seem too slow-witted or lazy to deal with the problem. From Statistics Canada to the Law Society, we see nothing but compliance with a point of view totally at variance with our experience of life in this country.

Mar. 6, 1999 - from a column in the National Post newspaper
Cools, Anne  
Gender feminist ideology has driven much law in Canada, and consequently has driven much injustice. It has ravaged law, justice, many careers, and many human lives. It worked for many years. It was even lucrative. It resulted in positions, jobs, grants, and even appointments to the bench. It created a terrible silence as it inflicted obvious injustices on many. It was buttressed by feminist terrorism and aggression, ready to pursue to destruction anyone who gets in its way, while chanting its mantra that all evil and violence are men's, and that all goodness, virtue, and truth are women's.

Mar. 4, 1999 - from a speech in the Canadian Senate
The political divide on the bench between the activist judges - some charter, some feminists - and the traditionalist judges, supported by their corollary divide at the bar, has erupted into public consciousness with the force that attends the eruption of a longstanding, fomenting social problem.

Mar. 4, 1999 - from a speech in the Canadian Senate
D'Souza, Dinesh
It's ... interesting to note that the women's studies and black studies departments, which were originally set up to fight the intolerance of traditional academic departments, are now among the most intolerant places on campus.

Jan. 1995 - from "Forbidden Thoughts", a discussion published in American Enterprise by the American Enterprise Institute
Danziger, Danny
[Eleventh-century female landowner] Aelfflaed's will tells us that she had supervised the farming of many acres with apparent success, giving orders to men in a male-dominated society, while Wulfgeat of Donnington [an 11th-century male farmer] clearly found nothing unusual in leaving his lands [in his will] to be run by his womenfolk. There are no women depicted on the Julius Work Calendar but ... women who possessed sufficient strength of character were able to claim power and exercise authority in the England of the year 1000.

1999 - from The Year 1000 (with Robert Lacey)
Goldberg, Jonah
Since the 1960s, activist academics and ideologues popularized the idea that we can make human beings whatever we want them to be if we can just throw off a lot of cultural baggage. Nowhere did this idea gain greater footing than in the realm of sexual politics. Feminists rejected the idea there was anything inherently different between men and women.

May 3, 2001 - from "A Lesson in the Obvious", published by Tribune Media Services
Greenspan, Edward  
... politics has taken over the issues surrounding sexual assault. It is clear that the feminist influence has amounted to intimidation, posing a potential danger to the independence of the judiciary. I deplore any attempt to use the Canadian Judicial Council as an agent of the women's movement, through the filing of complaints against judges whose remarks do not accord with the feminist world view. Feminists have entrenched their ideology in the Supreme Court of Canada and have put all contrary views beyond the pale.... the feminists and their fellow travellers have created such a repressive and authoritarian world that certain words are not only unacceptable, but now constitute misconduct. The feminist perspective has hi-jacked the Supreme Court of Canada and now feminists want to throw off the bench anyone who disagrees with them...

Mar. 2, 1999 - from "Judges have no right to be bullies", published in the National Post
Greer, Germaine
 Women fail to understand how much men hate them.

1969 - from The Female Eunuch
Hill, Anita
 Women should be supported regardless of proof.

Jan. 24, 1994 - quoted by Roger Kimball in "Trial by Zeitgeist" published in National Review Magazine, Vol. 46

Martin, Diane  
Children and women are treated as truth tellers for the purposes of their claims... A trial is not a determination of what happened anymore. The presumption of innocence has taken a major hit over the last 15 years under the guise of offering protection to vulnerable witnesses.

Apr. 18, 1998 - from "Lawyer says top court deserves tough criticism", published in the Globe and Mail
Reagan, Maureen
I will feel equality has arrived when we can elect to office women who are as unqualified as some of the men who are already there.

Schlafly, Phyllis
It is important to realize that, when the feminists talk about "women's rights," they don't mean fair treatment for women in jobs, school, or home. When feminists talk about "women's rights," they mean a radical restructuring of society, with government using its power to force feminist goals on all the rest of us.

Dec. 1991 - from "The Radical Goals of the Femnists", published by Copley News Service
Sommers, Christina Hoff
I thought once I pointed out errors replicated over and over again - a supposed 150,000 girls dying every year of anorexia, for instance, whereas the correct figure is closer to 100 - the gender feminists would admit they blew it. I pointed out fatal mistakes in rape research, battery research, self-esteem research. I've since come to learn that alarming statistics on victimization are the catechisms of orthodox feminism.

Jan. 1995 - from "Forbidden Thoughts", a discussion published in American Enterprise by the American Enterprise Institute
The gender feminists cannot tolerate any questioning of that crucial loyal-to-the-sisterhood principle. A more individualist grass roots feminism severely threatens them.

Jan. 1995 - from "Forbidden Thoughts", a discussion published in American Enterprise by the American Enterprise Institute
Victimology has replaced religion for many. To assert that American women are fortunate rather than victimized is anathema. It violates feminist holy writ.

Jan. 1995 - from "Forbidden Thoughts", a discussion published in American Enterprise by the American Enterprise Institute
Sowell, Thomas
In its pursuit of justice for a segment of society in disregard of the consequences for society as a whole, what is called "social justice" might more accurately be called anti-social justice, since what consistently gets ignored or dismissed are precisely the costs to society.

1999 - from The Quest for Cosmic Justice
Zeller, Richard
There was a time that ... honorable people could disagree honorably; now, any challenge to the campus sacred cows (feminism, affirmative action, and multiculturalism) is denounced as evil.

Sep. 28, 2000 - quoted by Larry Elder in "The politically incorrect professor", published by Creators Syndicate Inc.
