Victoria Billings

  • There is no such thing as being too independent.

  • Any woman could act like a lady, and this behavior was interpreted as being submissive, demure, inhibited ... Being a lady in the Western world was like footbinding in China.

  • The best thing that could happen to motherhood already has. Fewer women are going into it.

  • Any garment that makes you feel bad will make you look bad.

  • Constant togetherness is fine — but only for Siamese twins.

  • Rape is a culturally fostered means of suppressing women. Legally we say we deplore it, but mythically we romanticize and perpetuate it, and privately we excuse and overlook it ...

Victoria Billings, U.S. journalist

(1945)
