Famous quotes containing the word ehrenreich:

    No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.
    —Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    Marriage is socialism among two people.
    —Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)

    The media have just buried the last yuppie, a pathetic creature who had not heard the news that the great pendulum of public conciousness has just swung from Greed to Compassion and from Tex-Mex to meatballs.
    —Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
