Famous quotes containing the words mothers and/or positive:

    The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.
    Andrea Dworkin (b. 1946)

For the day that moral issues cease to be fought over is the day the word “human” disappears from the race.
    Jill Tweedie (b. 1936)
