When you have to come up with a Manifesto for women, Valentine de Saint Point is definitely a distinctive choice. She was nothing if not versatile, formerly a model for Mucha and Rodin, dancer, writer, activist and theorist. Being a women myself I found her intellectual writings on the subject still progressive and contemporary.

“Woman who retains man through her tears and her sentimentality is inferior to the prostitute who incites her man, through braggery, to retain his domination over the lower depths of the cities with his revolver at the ready: at least she cultivates an energy that could serve better causes.”

“Enough women who create children just for themselves, keeping them from any danger or adventure, that is, any joy; keeping their daughter from love and their son from war! … Enough of those women, the octopuses of the hearth, whose tentacles exhaust men’s blood and make children anemic”
