“Marriage and motherhood have their trials and tribulations, but what lifestyle doesn’t?
If you look upon your home as a cage, you will find yourself just as imprisoned in an office or a factory.
The flight from the home is a flight from self, from responsibility, from the nature of woman, in pursuit of false hopes and fading fantasies.
If you complain about servitude to a husband, servitude to a boss will be more intolerable.
Everyone in the world has a boss of some kind. It is easier for most women to achieve a harmonious working relationship with a husband than with a foreman, supervisor or office manager.”
~ “Choosing a Career” by Phyllis Schalfly (1977)
We get more accomplished by being charming than we would be flaunting around in pants and smoking.
I’m very fond of men. I think they are wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don’t want to look like one.
When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error…” -Tasha Tudor
“Feminists ought to get a good whipping.
Were women to ‘unsex’ themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen and disgusting of beings, and would surely perish without male protection.”
-England’s Queen Victoria 1870
