Wifehood Quotes (1 quote)
[American] Motherhood is like being a crack tennis player or ballet dancerit lasts just so long, then its over. Weve made an abortive effort to turn women into people. Weve sent them to school and put them in slacks. But weve focused on wifehood and reproductivity with no clue about what to do with mother after the children have left home. Weve found no way of using the resources of women in the 25 years of post-menopausal zest. As a result many women seem to feel they should live on the recognition and care of society.
