    ...Women’s Studies can amount simply to compensatory history; too often they fail to challenge the intellectual and political structures that must be challenged if women as a group are ever to come into collective, nonexclusionary freedom.
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)

    She stripped it from her arm. I see her yet:
    Her pretty action did outsell her gift,
    And yet enriched it too.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    He that depends
    Upon your favors swims with fins of lead,
    And hews down oaks with rushes.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
