Text for Poster...

"Because... Our work is never done and underpaid or boring or repititious and we're the first to get the sack and what we look like is more important than what we do and if we get raped it's our fault and if we get bashed we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we’re nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and if we don't we're frigid and if we love women it's because we can't get a real man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we’re neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect community care for children we’re selfish and if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and unfeminine and if we don't we're typical weak females and if we want to get married we're out to trap a man and if we don't we're unnatural and because we still can't get an adequate contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can't cope or don’t want a pregnancy we're made to feel guilty about abortion and... For lots and lots of other reasons... We are part of the Women's Liberation Movement."
