QotD; “The Creation of Feminist Consciousness”

Men develop ideas and systems of explanation by absorbing past knowledge and critiquing and superseding it. Women, ignorant of their own history, do not know what women before them had thought and taught. So generation after generation, they struggle for insights others had already had before them, resulting in the constant reinventing of the wheel.
