Uppity Women #6

Welcome to Dr. Maria New's worst nightmare. Well educated, well written, well traveled, sexually liberated, married three times but only one child, liked men, liked women (and I mean that in the sexual sense), anthropoligist Margaret Mead was incredibly outspoken and said:

❦  Every time we liberate a woman, we liberate a man.  

❦  Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.

And the best reason one can find for blogging:

❦  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.

Can you feel the androgen exposure? I so totally can....

  1. Margaret Mead has always been one of my heroes

  2. Mine too, Jen. Such a compelling figure in the area of human and women's, rights. Her effect on acceptance of broader sexual mores and cultural differences has been so powerful.

  3. I love this! I am going to use her comment in reply to all those who question me on my decision to only have one child.
