It’s an unrecognized problem among teenage girls, and it’s something that every young woman who has painful menstruation should be aware of… It’s a condition that is curable if it’s caught early.

They are quieter, more fearful of holding strong opinions, more careful what they say and less honest. They are more likely to second-guess themselves and to be self-critical.

Many must fight for years to regain all the territory they lost.” ~ Mary Pipher
  27. “Young women say I helped them come out of their shells.” ~ Bettie Page

But in getting wisdom and getting knowledge, above all we should “get understanding.” It is important to learn a profession, learn a trade.

Taylor

  34. “Much-derided chick lit, chick flicks, and chick magazines have left ambitious women in a bind.

But people need to understand what feminism means and educate themselves before they reject it.” ~ Julie Zeilinger
  42. “I believe there need to be women visual in our everyday landscape, working hard and doing their own thing, whether you like it or not, whether it’s acceptable or not…I especially hope to inspire young women because often I feel like so much emphasis is put on how beautiful you are, and how thin you are, and not a lot of emphasis is put on what you can do and how smart you are.

  49. “As a young woman, I dreamed of changing the world. In my twenties, I went to Africa to try and save the continent, only to learn that Africans neither wanted nor needed saving.

The pay is better.'” ~ Bharati Mukherjee
  53. “My Bible tells me that if we train a child in the way he should go when he is old he will not turn from it.
