Katha Pollitt

There is still a lot of covert and overt hostility toward women.

Women are more educated on breast cancer awareness and the need for regular gynecological exams. This is most likely secondary to the lack of education women receive on colorectal cancer.

Chad Potteiger

Lucy Stone

The more we've toured, we've gotten more and more of a diverse crowd. We have a lot of young girls, a lot of teenagers, guys in their 30s that love the same music we do.

The promiscuity of men in both these cultures is generally more acceptable. The thinking is that's OK for men to have side dishes.

In movies, I hope women aren't always portrayed as sex symbols. People like Drew Barrymore are paving the way for girls my age. Hopefully I can pave the way for young actresses, too.

Sela Ward

Engineering is a great profession. There is the satisfaction of watching a figment of the imagination emerge through the aid of science to a plan on paper.

This is the engineer's high privilege.

Herbert Hoover

What Women Want: To be loved, to be listened to, to be desired, to be respected, to be needed, to be trusted, and sometimes, just to be held. What Men Want: Tickets for the world series.

The women of South Dakota will still be able to access safe and legal abortion as this case works its way through the court system.

Kate Looby

Women can have this type of treatment during their lunch hour, and then go back and do all of their regular activities.

Tina Alster

She (a woman politician) will be challenging a system that is still wedded to militarism and that saves billions of dollars a year by underpaying women and using them as a reserve cheap labor supply.

Bella Abzug

Our firm was really good about supporting women. We felt that we could attain professionally whatever we set our hearts on, but we didn't want to have to sacrifice the family part.

I have been very privileged to meet some of the most dynamic women of the day, and these ladies who have generously given of their time for Communities In Schools are as great as they come. We are so lucky to have these high caliber leaders participating in our Lunch With A Leader(TM) online celebrity auction.

Bill Milliken

This is the strangest period that I can recall in my lifetime, because individuals that will encourage their own children even, to blow themselves to kingdom come to take our innocent men, women and children, is something that is unconscionable. These are like uncivilized animals.

Phil Crane

Tonight they're good, tomorrow they're just plastic beads. What's scary is what the women do for these plastic beads.

Jane Thompson

These are really the intuitive products that women like because they enhance connectivity and communication. With more moms in the workforce, demand is also growing for personal productivity products like cell phones and notebook computers.

Frank Sadowski

I can especially see this arrangement being of interest to women. With 30 percent widowed in the 65-74 age bracket, they'll be living a long time without a spouse. Instead of moving into a group situation where you might or might not like the other members, you could choose your friends and people who have the same kinds of value systems and interests.

Sandra Timmerman

Aristotle maintained that women have fewer teeth than men; although he was twice married, it never occurred to him to verify this statement by examining his wives' mouths.

Bertrand Russell

Ten years of misogynistic lad culture later and women victims are still on trial.

Katha Pollitt

Jim was in his element that day. He was a fantastic choreographer of words and he wanted us to pretend we were the SAS on a raid. We were to go in there, shoot 'em up, grab their beer and women and then bugger off. And that, of course, is basically what we did.

Roger Baird

I think that's where the problem starts - is that we have put the onus on women to protect themselves instead of teaching men and boys that this is inappropriate behavior. If you focus only on the women, then you're doing what is called victim-blaming - and saying, somehow it's your fault that you got raped, and you need to prevent it.

Danielle Currier

We're in a culture where women really aren't equal. How many CEOs are women? Over the years we have seen the ability of women to get higher in the pecking order, but we've gotten complacent. Women make 73 percent of what men make.

Phyllis Demott

I'm doing a lot of child research now because of my son. I've taken him to swimming class, and I go to Mommies and Me, and... I get all the parenting magazines. I think with women who are doing it all for the first time, and are not quite my age, there's this process of discovery.

Deidre Hall

Women are one of the most important segments of the adventure travel industry. Women make the vast majority of travel decisions in families - not only the destinations, but the activities. They are the predominant adventure travel planners.

Jenan Bushehri

Let's raise more good men and women.

Michael Class

Doug Ramsey

The results of this survey are shocking and should be a wake-up call to men and women that drinking and smoking too much not only gives you a bad headache in the morning but can affect your ability to start a family.

Ann Robinson

We performed better than it looked like we would on paper and I am very proud of the great job our women did. Colorado State performed well and deserved to win this but our girls still had some outstanding performances.

Craig Poole

I never dreamed of revealing my weight ever. It's kind of a taboo subject for women.

Angela Hefel

I wouldn't say it's totally unique to this industry, I think a lot of conferences employ attractive women to hock wares. I guess where the ESA is drawing a line is that they're trying to put a definition to what constitutes scantily clad and what's borderline offensive.

Greg Kasavin

We were on the bridge. It was so crowded. Thousands of people were surrounding me. We heard that a suicide attacker was among the crowd. Everybody was yelling so I jumped from the bridge into the river, swam and reached the bank. I saw women, children and old men falling after me into the water.

Fadhel Ali

We have some women right now in the community going over the names. They've been going over them for the last week or 10 days. We found a lot of names that we have checked on. They're doing a tremendous job.

Jack Rogers

I wanted to be a journalist, I thought it was glamorous and that I'd meet beautiful women in the rain.

Bill Nighy

I decided blacks should not have to experience the difficulties I had faced, so I decided to open a flying school and teach other black women to fly.

Bessie Coleman

We've seen a tremendous response to Desperate Housewives products made available to date, so extending the franchise into the world of fragrance makes perfect sense. Given Coty's outstanding track record in the fragrance market, the Desperate Housewives scent is guaranteed to be a hit with women everywhere, connecting them in a very personal way to this popular series.

Bruce Gersh

The women welcomed the Jamaican women into their apartments while the Bajan men found places for the Jamaican men to sleep in their rooms. We had to look out for each other.

Mark Adams

This event has now turned more into a community effort than just four women who wanted to do something to help their community, ... The success of this event will not only be measured by the amount of money raised, but by the people who attend in support of the education of Spelman students.


Is this safe for women, when in fact there have been no studies done on the long-term effects on women who take the morning-after pill, and there are no studies that have been done on multiple use -- if a woman uses it more than once.

Wendy Wright

I had no idea that they were protecting Iraqi oil terminals. What I saw today were some extraordinarily motivated men and women who are all volunteers, working under unbelievably difficult conditions.

Bruce Simon

Intuition is truly a feminine quality, but women should not mistake rash conclusions for this gift.

Minna Antrim

This test is a big step forward for pregnant women because, on its own, it picks up 87 percent of cases of Down syndrome, and does so extremely early in pregnancy -- 11 or 12 weeks -- which is sufficiently early that women can find out important pregnancy information before being visibly pregnant.

Fergal Malone

I see America, not in the setting sun of a black night of despair ahead of us, I see America in the crimson light of a rising sun fresh from the burning, creative hand of God. I see great days ahead, great days possible to men and women of will and vision.

Carl Sandburg

Nike is honored to be involved with the WBCA High School All-America Game. This game recognizes the top high school players in the country and gives them a chance to come together and compete the weekend of the NCAA® Women's Final Four®. We recognize the importance of women in sports and would like to congratulate all the participants!

Mary Thompson

Most people who take our exercise classes are college-age women. Pole dancing just seems like it promotes objectification of women and surface sexuality.

Tracy Adams

What women often wrote about their fears was that breast cancer might cut short their time to enjoy family and be around for important milestones as their children grow older. It appeared that the closer a woman felt to her family or larger social network, the more she feared her potential separation from them as a result of breast cancer.

Bret Shaw

They didn't have college scholarships for women. Had they done that at the time, I may have stayed on for another two Olympics, but the opportunities were not available to women that they have today.

Peter Brier

And it's just nice to hang out with a mass of wonderful women.

Jillian Kinzie

This study is a very important reminder to physicians to pay particular attention to a woman's family history of colon, endometrial and ovarian cancers, with genetic counseling becoming of utmost importance. If women with Lynch syndrome are identified, there needs to be coordinated care between the gastrointestinal and obstetrics and gynecologic medical disciplines.

Karen Lu

Mr. Kaplan used people. He used women, he used celebrities, he used professional athletes for his own personal gratification and gain.

Art Leach

Women will reward companies that provide them with unbiased information, do not try to make the 'hard sell' and make their lives less complicated. Since car-buying information was readily available, Hyundai became the car company that put it together in a cohesive manner and simply cut to the chase and provided what the consumer really needed to know.

Donna Kane

We saw the women at the fall in the Evansville tournament. They had some pretty quality players so it should be a close match.

John Blackburn

If American men are obsessed with money, American women are obsessed with weight. The men talk of gain, the women talk of loss, and I do not know which talk is the more boring.

Marya Mannes

We look for strength. We look for persistence — a woman of the year is someone who believes that women can do whatever they set their mind to, and Mukhtar illustrates those qualities better than anybody. This is a story that's going to shock everyone who hears it.

Cindi Leive

Plan B offers women a last chance to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex. Instead of making this last chance more widely available, this administration wants to punish women by making them pay for having sex.

James Trussell

It's important to encourage young women to accept themselves for who they are and campaign for more positive celebrity role models.

Holly Willoughby

Men are jerks. Women are psychotic.

Kilgore Trout

We all understand that the country is on the brink of war and may be sending American men and women into harm's way almost as we speak. We must prepare for the show to be produced under these circumstances.

Gil Cates

If you live in rock and roll, as I do, you see the reality of sex, of male lust and women being aroused by male lust. It attracts women. It doesn't repel them.

Camille Paglia

What I would really love is to be on a sitcom again, ... Everybody talks about Desperate Housewives - that's one show, and they're all gorgeous. But where's the Roseanne ? Where's the real women who are funny? That's where I come in.

Kathy Griffin

I haven't had that many women - only as many as I could lay my hands on.

I would like to remind all French men and French women to gather together to defend human rights, to guarantee the cohesion of the nation and to affirm the unity of the republic.

Jacques Chirac

Women, being the beautiful things that they are, love to have feminine touches around the house. They love gorgeous fabrics like lace. I mean, Ernest, when was the last time you bought tassels for the drapes.

Michael Payne

I'm extremely proud of the women for this accomplishment. We're here to go to school and that's reflected by the women's work in the classroom. More times than not, the better schools in the country have student-athletes who are talented both in athletics and academics.

Keith Crawford

Biological possibility and desire are not the same as biological need. Women have childbearing equipment. For them to choose not to use the equipment is no more blocking what is instinctive than it is for a man who, muscles or no, chooses not to be a weightlifter.

Betty Rollin

It's horrible about the incident. Any violence against women should not be tolerated.

Mike Woodard

A governor has the power to stay executions or commute sentences on a case-by-case basis, not to issue a blanket moratorium. We have put in place the safeguards necessary to protect innocent men and women from being executed.

Bill Brady

The world is full of women blindsided by the unceasing demands of motherhood, still flabbergasted by how a job can be terrific and torturous.

Anna Quindlen

Women have to be aware. They should run with a partner, don't go after dark, do everything your mom and dad told you to do.

John Garamendi

Black women have always been these vixens, these animalistic erotic women. Why can't we just be the sexy American girl next door?

Tyra Banks

In education, in marriage, in religion, in everything, disappointment is the lot of women. It shall be the business of my life to deepen this disappointment in every woman's heart until she bows down to it no longer.

Lucy Stone

A lot of women think they need to be a good golfer, but what they need to know are the rules and etiquette.

Kathy Lobato

Women who were told the math test would assess their ability held the hand grip for significantly less times than those in the other three groups. The study?s results demonstrate that the relationship between prejudice and self-control is translatable across stigmatized groups and that it interferes with an individual?s ability to regulate various activities.

Michael Inzlicht

The Vagina Monologues really shows what happens with women and violence and how it occurs in all communities, not just in the U.S. but world wide.
