IWD 2013 . . .

                    As we celebrate International Women's Day today ,
I thought these quotes were appropriate. . . 
"I measure the progress of a community by the 
degree of progress which women have achieved." 
B. R. Ambedkar, Indian jurist, political leader, 
philosopher, anthropologist.
"I've yet to be on a campus where most women 
weren't worrying about some aspect of combining 
marriage, children, and a career. I've yet to find 
one where many men were worrying about the same 
thing." Gloria Steinem, American feminist, 
journalist, and social and political activist  
“You educate a man; you educate a man. 
You educate a woman; you educate a generation.” 
Brigham Young (though I think he was a nutjob, 
still a great quote)

To think on, today and going forward . . .
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” 
Nora Ephron, journalist, essayist, playwright, screenwriter, 
novelist, producer and director.
"After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin
enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this
enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up
one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.' " Anna Quindlen,
author, journalist, and opinion columnist.

And for a giggle . . .
"Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition."
Timothy Leary, psychologist and writer.
"You see alot of smart guys with dumb women, but you
hardly ever see a smart woman with a dumb guy."
Erica Jong, author and teacher.
"I hate women because they always know where
things are." Voltaire, French Enlightenment writer,
historian and philosopher.
