Quote by Joan Jett
The media says that equality for women has arrived, but if you look around, you still don't see girls playing guitars and having success with it.
This quote suggests that although the media may claim that gender equality has been achieved, the visual evidence in society tells a different story. The absence of girls playing guitars and achieving success implies that there are still barriers preventing women from pursuing and excelling in certain fields. It highlights the limitations and stereotypes that persist, challenging the notion that equality has truly been reached.
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
