Elizabeth Gould Davis

  • The most wasteful 'brain drain' in America today is the drain in the kitchen sink.

  • The fact is that men need women more than women need men; and so, aware of this fact, man has sought to keep woman dependent upon him economically as the only method open to him of making himself necessary to her.

Elizabeth Gould Davis, U.S. writer, librarian

(1925 - 1974)
