The Dalai Lama is a Feminist

via Feminist Law Professors

During his closing remarks at the International Freedom Award Ceremony in Memphis, TN yesterday, the Dalai Lama stated:

“I call myself a feminist.  Isn’t that what you call someone who fights for women’s rights? … Whether you believe this religion or that religion, we are all the same human beings.  We all come from the same mother. That creates the basis for compassion.”

Love him.
