We have a collection of 4 Women quotes from Audre Lorde

"I write for those women who do not speak, for those who do not have a voice because they were so terrified, because we are taught to respect fear more than ourselves. We've been taught that silence would save us, but it won't." (ID 28503)

"Black women are programmed to define ourselves within this male attention and to compete with each other for it rather than to recognize and move upon our common interests." (ID 28779)

"But the true feminist deals out of a lesbian consciousness whether or not she ever sleeps with women." (ID 28804)

"We have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit because what was native has been stolen from us, the love of Black women for each other." (ID 28844)
