: Fear. Suzanne Sanders
: Of what? Diana St. Cloud
: Well, mine started with my father, who used to beat me. Suzanne Sanders
: Really? Diana St. Cloud
: And when he wasn't hitting me, he would tell me I was stupid, and brainless. And my mother allowed it, because she was so afraid she wouldn't be able to survive alone. Suzanne Sanders
: I can't believe anyone would hit their own child. Diana St. Cloud
: Well, I guess by putting me down, my father was making himself feel smarter and stronger. Suzanne Sanders
: But that's wrong. Diana St. Cloud
: I know. Suzi, men have been oppressing women for thousands of years, and we've allowed it. Suzanne Sanders
: Well, I'm not gonna allow it. Diana St. Cloud
: We allow it. And every time we tell our daughters they're not as bright, not as strong, not as good as men, every time, we're creating another generation of fear.
