    Camille Paglia (b. 1947)

    It is well within the order of things
    That man should listen when his mate sings;
    But the true male never yet walked
    Who liked to listen when his mate talked.
    Anna Wickham (1884–1947)

    ... probably all of the women in this book are working to make part of the same quilt to keep us from freezing to death in a world that grows harsher and bleaker—where male is the norm and the ideal human being is hard, violent and cold: a macho rock.

    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)
