By nice women...you probably mean
selfish women who have no more thought for the underprivileged,
overworked women than a pussycat in a sunny window for the starving
kitten in the street. Now in that sense I am not a nice woman, for I do
care. ~ Nellie McClung
Social science affirms that a woman's place in society marks the level of civilization. ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it exists principally in dealing with men. ~ Joseph Conrad
Many of our troubles in the world today
arise from an over-emphasis of the masculine, and a neglect of the
feminine. This modern world is an aggressive, hyperactive, competitive,
masculine world, and it needs the woman's touch as never before. ~ Eva
