Famous quotes containing the words federation and/or chess:

    —General Federation Of Women’s Clubs (GFWC)

Regardless of age or status, women who seem clearest about their goals and most satisfied with their lives and personal and family relationships usually remember that their fathers enjoyed them and were actively interested in their development.
