Notable quotables from women to lis­ten to

MOIRA AND ME

“She is all of the mi­nori­ties that I am: she is a black, gay woman. And the ex­pe­ri­ence of walk­ing through the world be­ing a black, gay woman is such a spe­cific ex­pe­ri­ence. Some­times, you can’t even talk about all of the things you go through, with that as your re­al­ity.” Samira Wi­ley dis­cussing her char­ac­ter in The Hand­maid’s Tale with the Guardian

COM­ING OUT OF THE SHAD­OWS

“Liv­ing in the shadow feels like the safe place to be / No harm for them, no harm for me / But life is short, and it’s time to be free / Love who you love, be­cause life isn’t guar­an­teed.” Jay-z’s mum Glo­ria Carter com­ing out as a les­bian on her son’s new song, Smile

I’M FLUID!

“Once I spoke about my sex­ual flu­id­ity, peo­ple were like, ‘So you’re gay.’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m not gay.’ A lot of the friends I have who are straight have such an old way of think­ing… I’m fluid! I like fluid.” Cara Delev­ingne talk­ing to Glam­our mag­a­zine about her sex­u­al­ity

THE L WORD RE­BOOT

“We talk about it all the time. When we went off the air in 2009 I, and I think a lot of peo­ple, thought: ‘Ok, the ba­ton is passed now and there will be lots of shows that por­tray les­bian char­ac­ters, les­bian life.’ But there’s re­ally noth­ing. It cer­tainly feels like maybe The L Word should come back.” Ilene Chaiken ap­pear­ing on the EW L Word Re­union Spe­cial, shortly be­fore the news of a re­boot was an­nounced
