"I like to see feminist theory as a reinvented coyote discourse obligated to its sources in many heterogenous accounts of the world." —Donna Haraway

"Here's how you can show up: Knowledge plus empathy plus action. If you take any one away, you're performing." —Rachel Cargle

“Education must begin with the solution of the teacher-student contradiction, by reconciling the poles of the contradiction so that both are simultaneously students and teachers.” —Paulo Freire

"Instead of conceiving inclusive education as an outcome that must be achieved, we have conceptualized it as a process that is always ongoing, continual, and by extension, unfinished." —Scot Danforth and Srikala Naraian

"Writing is feminist machinery, and play is one of its gears." —Laura Micciche
