Considered

Famous quotes containing the word considered:

    In our civilization, men are afraid that they will not be men enough and women are afraid that they may be considered only women.
    Theodor Reik (1888–1969)

    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.
    —Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen. Excerpted from, Gender Grace: Love, Work, and Parenting in a Changing World (1990)

    Women cannot claim the right to be considered mature and responsible until they decide the course of their lives for themselves and refuse to be a “manipulated group.” They will not be truly emancipated until ... the right to work is a matter of course and not of discussion.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
