“Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London *society* is full of women of the highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.”

—Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

“An accurate charting of the American woman’s progress through history might look more like a corkscrew tilted slightly to one side, its loops inching closer to the line of freedom with the passage of time—but like a *mathematical* curve approaching infinity, never touching its goal. . . . Each time, the spiral turns her back just short of the finish line.”

—Susan Faludi (20th century)
