I don’t like [the pressure] that people put on me - on women - that you’ve failed yourself as a female because you haven’t procreated…This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don’t want to be a mother, and how selfish that is…Even saying it gets me a little tight in my throat.

I think one of the most important things we did as a party this cycle is we didn’t nominate any cavemen.

On [one] Daily Show segment…women in the studio run through their tactics—listening to music, fake phone calls, looking straight down at the sidewalk and pretending not to hear. I, too, have a strategy. I deploy an advance attack: nodding and saying, “How’s it going?” before any man has a chance to be rude. In case you’ve missed the bigger point, let me spell it out for you: Women have strategies for walking down the street. If you’re a man, ask yourself whether you have a strategy beyond putting one foot in front of the other, and you might begin to see why street harassment becomes exhausting.

You struck a nerve with the whole community…I’ve been in the community for a long time fighting for [marijuana legalization]…. now we got people like yourself who are standing up. You show that this multi culture is not just a bunch of thug dudes that’s trying to push weed - but it’s women. And they speak with intelligence, and speak from a right frame of mind…
