"Freedom is actually a bigger game than power.
Power is about what you can control.
Freedom is about what you can unleash.”

Raicho Hiratsuka

" Women, please let your own sun, 
your concentrated energy, 
your own submerged authentic vital power
shine out from you.
We are no longer the moon, Today we are truly the sun,
We will build shining golden cathedrals
at the top of crystal mountains, 
East of the Land of the Rising Sun.
Women, when you paint your own portrait,
do not forget to put the golden dome at
the top of your head.

writer, journalist, political activist and pioneering Japanese feminist
