OUR FAVORITE RUTH-ISMS
“My mother told me to be a lady. And for her, that meant be your own person, be independent.”
“The state controlling a woman would mean denying her full autonomy and full equality.”
“I – try to teach through my opinions, through my speeches, how wrong it is to judge people on the basis of what they look like, color of their skin, whether they’re men or women.
