Famous quotes containing the words welfare and/or social:

    Borrow a child and get on welfare.
    Borrow a child and stay in the house all day with the child,
    or go to the public park with the child, and take the child
    to the welfare office and cry and say your man left you and
    be humble and wear your dress and your smile, and don’t talk
    back ...
    Susan Griffin (b. 1943)

    Anthropologists have found that around the world whatever is considered “men’s work” is almost universally given higher status than “women’s work.” If in one culture it is men who build houses and women who make baskets, then that culture will see house-building as more important. In another culture, perhaps right next door, the reverse may be true, and basket- weaving will have higher social status than house-building.
