“If you can’t say anything nice about somebody, step away from the voice enhancement equipment.”
Gail Collins

“The term “tomboy,” one nineteenth-century author recalled, looking back at the pre–Civil War era, “was applied to all little girls who showed the least tendency toward thinking and acting for themselves.”
Gail Collins, America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines

“Most émigrés arrived at Ellis Island in New York, invariably confused and exhausted from an unpleasant and dangerous voyage. Health inspectors checked every immigrant, and while the inspections were not particularly rigid, people were routinely refused entry. Often it was a child, leaving the mother with a sort of Sophie’s choice—whether to go back to Europe with the rejected son or daughter or stay with her husband and other children.”
Gail Collins, America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines
