Ruth Todasco

"Viewed as a 'lady,' I am pinned in ambivalence. I feel a calculating interest, a measuring of my appeal and availability. But as a 'lady' I am not supposed to notice that I am a sexual person. The effect of being 'ladylike' is to make a woman ashamed of her sexuality."

Ruth Todasco, in Newsweek (1974)
