    Men and women, women and men. It will never work.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)

    We found ourselves always torn between the mothers in our heads and the women we needed to become simply to stay alive.With one foot in the past and another in the future, we hobbled through first love, motherhood, marriage, divorce, careers, menopause, widowhood—never knowing what or who we were supposed to be, staking out new emotional territory at every turn—like pioneers.
    —Erica Jong (20th century)

    Gossip is the opiate of the oppressed.
    —Erica Jong (b. 1942)
