Famous quotes containing the word women:

    I fasted for some forty days on bread and buttermilk
    For passing round the bottle with girls in rags or silk,
    In country shawl or Paris cloak, had put my wits astray,
    And what’s the good of women for all that they can say
    Is fol de rol de rolly O.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Whether outside work is done by choice or not, whether women seek their identity through work, whether women are searching for pleasure or survival through work, the integration of motherhood and the world of work is a source of ambivalence, struggle, and conflict for the great majority of women.
    Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)

    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.
