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

“[Ella Baker]'s second defining characteristic was her dislike of top-down leadership... 'She felt leaders were not appointed but the rose up. Someone will rise. Someone will emerge'. It was an attitude Baker shared with some of the older women in the movement.”
Gail Collins, When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present

“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
