Marion Post Wolcott
[Photographer, b. 1910, Bloomfield, New Jersey, d. 1990, Santa Barbara, California.]

 Women are tough, supportive, sensitive, intelligent, and creative. They are survivors. Women have come a long way, but not far enough. Ahead still are formidable hurdles. Speak with your images from your heart and soul. Give of yourselves. Trust your gut reactions. Suck out the juices—the essence of your life experiences. Get on with it. It may not be too late. 

Garry Winogrand
[Photographer, b. 1928, New York, d. 1984, Tijuana, Mexico.]

 I don’t know if all the women in the photographs are beautiful, but I do know the women are beautiful in the photographs. 

Martha Rosler
[Artist, b. 1943, Brooklyn, New York, lives in New York.]

 Women war photographers had to fight on two fronts: the bombs, and the men. 

Eve Arnold
[Photographer, b. 1913, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, d. 2011, London.]

 Being a woman is just a marvelous plus in photographing. Men like to be photographed by women, it becomes flirtatious and fun, and women feel less as if they’re expected to be in a relationship. 

Paul Outerbridge
[Photographer, b. 1896, New York, d. 1958, Laguna Beach, California.]

 If exposure of a nude body is thought to incite relations between the sexes, well, what of it. We want a large population anyway. 

Simone de Beauvoir
[Writer and philosopher, b. 1908, Paris, d. 1986, Paris.]

 Representation of the world like the world itself is the work of men, they describe it from their point of view which they confuse with absolute truth. 

Sally Mann
[Photographer, b. 1951, Lexington, Virginia, lives in Lexington.]

 The act of looking appraisingly at a man, studying his body and asking to photograph him, is a brazen venture for a woman; for a male photographer, these acts are commonplace, even expected. 

Duane Michals
[Photographer, b. 1932, McKeesport, Pennsylvania, lives in New York.]

 Women and men—it’s an impossible subject, because there can be no answers. We can find only bits and pieces of clues.
