World War II

Famous quotes containing the words world and/or war:

    In a world where women work three times as hard for half as much, our achievement has been denigrated, both marriage and divorce have turned against us, our motherhood has been used as an obstacle to our success, our passion as a trap, our empathy for others as an excuse to underpay us.
    Erica Jong (20th century)

    The war on privilege will never end. Its next great campaign will be against the privileges of the underprivileged.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)
