    The public values the invention more than the inventor does. The inventor knows there is much more and better where this came from.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Assumptions of male superiority are as widespread and deep rooted and every bit as crippling to the woman as the assumptions of white supremacy are to the Negro.... this is no more a man’s world than it is a white world.
