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

“It took our entire history to actually change the rules of proper female behavior. But those rules were temporarily abandoned whenever the country needed women to do something they weren’t supposed to do.”
Gail Collins, America's Women: 400 Years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines

“[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
