Mary Daly
b. 10-16-1928; Schenectady, NY

Radical feminist philosopher, theologian, and author of The Church and the Second Sex Mary Daly taught at Boston College for 33 years. She ‘retired’ from the Jesuit-run institution in 1999 after refusing to allow male students in her Women's Studies classroom.

Mary Daly quotes ~
• “It is the creative potential itself in human beings that is the image of God.”
• “Courage is like – it's a habitus, a habit, a virtue: you get it by courageous acts. It's like you learn to swim by swimming. You learn courage by couraging.”
• “Work is a substitute "religious" experience for many workaholics.”
• “Tokenism does not change stereotypes of social systems but works to preserve them, since it dulls the revolutionary impulse.”
