There's a certain kind of conversation you have from time to time at parties in New York about a new book. The word 'banal' sometimes rears its by-now banal head; you say 'underedited,' I say 'derivative.' The conversation goes around and around various literary criticisms, and by the time it moves on one thing is clear: No one read the book; we just read the reviews.Anna Quindlen
When an actress takes off her clothes onscreen but a nursing mother is told to leave, what message do we send about the roles of women?

It's important to remember that feminism is no longer a group of organizations or leaders. It's the expectations that parents have for their daughters, and their sons, too. It's the way we talk about and treat one another. It's who makes the money and who makes the compromises and who makes the dinner. It's a state of mind. It's the way we live now.Anna Quindlen
