Good Old Feminism: Classic Cinema Icons Explain Us What Feminism Means

Back in the XX Century, long before the #meToo movement, feminism might not be so exposed and publicized as nowadays, but was definitely alive.

From Catherine Deneuve to Marilyn Monroe, we have found some of the best quotes that prove feminism has always existed, in different forms.

Read below!


“A woman has to be intelligent, have charm, a sense of humor, and be kind. It’s the same qualities I require from a man.”

  • Catherine Deneuve



“I am a woman meant for a man, but I never found a man who could compete.”

  • Bette Davis



“There is more to sex appeal than just measurements. I don’t need a bedroom to prove my womanliness. I can convey just as much sex appeal picking apples off a tree or standing in the rain.” Slay those unrealistic body standards.”

  • Audrey Hepburn

  • Katharine Hepburn
