NPR Special Series: The Changing Lives Of Women.

This quote, resonated with me: Tennessee currently has proposed a Constitutional Amendment on the November 14th Ballot affecting Women’s Reproductive Rights

“Men are allowed to talk about sports relentlessly, and yet we still take them seriously. I don’t understand why women can’t talk about fashion, or sex, or love, or wanting more money and not be taken as seriously as men.”

“while the shift in marriage patterns is mostly a good thing for women, it can also be seen as a destabilizing force in society.”

“The lack of marriage is being blamed for almost every social ill — whether it’s gun violence, whether it’s poverty, whether it’s the dropping birth rate. You have demographers worried about the fact that as people marry later, they’re having fewer children. Single women come in for an enormous amount of blame, politically and culturally.”
