Quotations About / On: GIRL
I was always pretending that I was a poor-working-girl, always forgetting that I was really poor M also a working girl.
(Margaret Anderson (1886-1973), U.S. literary editor and autobiographer. My Thirty Years' War, ch. 1 (1930).
On her first full year in Chicago, as a working woman independent of her parents. Raised in affluence, she was now on her own, living hand-to-mouth as a book reviewer and literary editor.)
(Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), U.S. suffragist. As quoted in Life and Work of Susan B. Anthony, vol. 3, ch. 58, by Ida Husted Harper (1908).
With this line written in her diary on September 10, 1900, Anthony noted the success of a long and costly campaign to get women admitted to the University of Rochester on the same basis as men. Despite her advanced age, she had played a major role in the effort. She apparently made the diary entry immediately after returning home from a meeting with the University of Rochester's Board of Trustees.)
(Rena Rietveld Verduin, U.S. farm woman. As quoted in The Female Experience, ch. 45, by Gerda Lerner (1977).
Said in a 1907 debate organized by the Lansing Country Culture Club. She was reacting to the typical hard life of a farm woman.)
