Mary Jo Weaver

  • Women who work at home rearing children and attending to various household tasks are expected to provide something that is absolutely essential yet costs nothing, like the air we breathe.

  • Male philosophers coin phrases — 'virtue is its own reward' — and female workers embody them.

  • Spirituality is rooted in desire. We long for something we can neither name nor describe, but which is no less real because of our inability to capture it with words.

Mary Jo Weaver, U.S. educator, writer, religion scholar
