QUOTABLE

“Women make natural anarchists and revolutionaries, because they’ve always been second-class citizens, kinda having had to claw their way up. I mean, who made up all the rules in the culture? Men—white male corporate society. So why wouldn’t a woman want to rebel against that?”

–Former Sonic Youth member and sometimes-fashion designer Kim Gordon, on why women excel at fighting against oppression. Here, she’s speaking directly about imprisoned Russian feminist activists Pussy Riot, but I think this quote kind of applies to all of us, no? Also, her daughter Coco (with soon-to-be-ex-husband Thurston Moore) is a freshman in college. My, we’re old. [Elle]
