Collective movements for social justice do not gain traction through niceness. American women did not gain the right to vote by skipping down Pennsylvania Avenue while whistling cute songs about suffrage: they picketed, they marched, they yelled, they were arrested.

“Feminism is not an extreme term – it is a mainstream movement that has transformed modern Australia for the better.”
