A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle
A feminist slogan, suggesting that men are superfluous to women’s needs.
(Origin) This slogan is often attributed to Gloria Steinem. Other claims for origination point to Florynce Kennedy, or to an anonymous author who painted the slogan on a wall at University of Wisconsin in 1969.
In fact, it was Irina Dunn, a distinguished Australian educator, journalist and politician, coined the phrase back in 1970 when she was a student at the University of Sydney.

Man: I need a bicycle
Seller: For your kid?
Man: Nope, for my wife.
Happy reading! Till then,
Cheers & TTFN ~ 😀
