I am a new woman.
I seek, I strive each day to be that truly new woman I want to be.
In truth, that eternally new being is the sun.
I am the sun …
The new woman today seeks neither beauty nor virtue.
She is simply
crying out for strength,
the strength to create this still unknown kingdom …
Hiratsuka Raicho (1911)
women in conflict,
as neither heroes, nor victims,
shared their thoughts on what strength and beauty means to them
