A Quote

'Reasonable men adjust themselves to their environment. Unreasonable men attempt to change their environment to suit themselves. Therefore, all progress is the work of unreasonable men.'

—George Bernard Shaw

Obviously Mr. Shaw has never lived life as a woman, much less a woman who is a member of various other marginalized minority groups.

Under such circumstances, changing the environment, not just to suit themselves but to better the lives of everybody else around them, is a perfectly reasonable, logical, and morally defensible thing to do.
