"So why do you write these strong female characters?"

"Because you’re still asking me this question"

They’re one of the most famous quotes associated with Joss but the origin and context of these remarks aren’t as widely known.  They actually come from a speech at an Equality Now award ceremony back in 2006. The video has the speech in full.
