QUOTES DU JOUR
LINDBERG, ANNE MORROW:
"By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class."
-- Anne Morrow Lindberg in Gift from the Sea.
"Since I received the most votes of any candidate, I was entitled to be elected president of the board by my new collegues. But, again, the pundits said, 'Feinstein has no experience. She should do the statemanlike thing and let the second highest vote getter be president of the board.'
"It just so happened that the person who came in second was a real estate broker who had NO experience in elective office. But he was a man."
"(Women elected to public office) earn the right to work for change through the vote of the people, but by our actions and relationships we develop the clout and reputation to bring about change. We are evaluated all along the way and the criteria for women are often more stringent than those for men. As I have said, respect and credibility are hard for women to achieve, and this difficulty has its consequences throughout the political world. For example, legislation is often evaluated on the basis of its author. A good bill by someone who is not respected by her or his peers may die a lonely death in committee, while a poor bill by a respected author will gain a floor vote."
-- Diane Feinstein commenting about her 1969 election to the 11-member legislative Board of Supervisors which governs the city and county of San Francisco. These quotes are taken from the forward to Women in Power - The Secrets of Leadership. Cantor, Dorothy W. and Toni Bernay with Jean Stoess. 1992: Houghton Mifflin Company, New York.
