Muriel Fox

"Total commitment to family and total commitment to career is possible, but fatiguing."

Muriel Fox, in Barbara Jordan Moore, New Woman (1971)

New Quoatation

"Women lead in ways different from men's. Men, I think, have been programmed to give orders. Women have been programmed to motivate people, to educate them, to bring out the best in them. Ours is a less authoritarian leadership. I think women tend to play hardball less often. This is the trend of office politics anyway: the days of warring factions are over. We're talking now in terms of cooperation, and I think that is the game women play best."

Muriel Fox, in Marilyn Loden, Feminine Leadership (1985)
