Who is mary field belenky?

Famous quotes containing the words belenky, mary and/or field:

    Mothers who have little sense of their own minds and voices are unable to imagine such capacities in their children. Not being fully aware of the power of words for communicating meaning, they expect their children to know what is on their minds without the benefit of words. These parents do not tell their children what they mean by “good” much less why. Nor do they ask the children to explain themselves.
    —Mary Field Belenky (20th century)

    France, indeed! whose Catholic millions still worship Mary Queen of Heaven; and for ten generations refused cap and knee to many angel Maries, rightful Queens of France.

    Father calls me William, sister calls me Will,
    Mother calls me Willie, but the fellers call me Bill!
    —Eugene Field (1850–1895)
