I never saw the feminist movement as something I wanted to get into because I didn't see my role as arguing for woman qua woman. It was the specifics of women's needs that have always grabbed me: their needs for family planning, their needs for health care, their needs for family support systems, their needs for the ability to control their own lives, and so on. Those are all very important parts of the family planning movement, of the whole reproductive health movement, but simply to say that I'm a feminist to support women as women, no! I think I see it as much more in terms of family, in terms of women and men and children, of the whole system and I'd prefer to think of it that way. It does not mean in any way that I'm not supportive of those that have tried to raise the glass ceiling.
