One morning last week, as I was about to dash off to the hospital, I stopped by our basement bookshelves to find a small paperback that could fit in my purse. This title had obvious appeal. The book is a history of women's advances, liberally sprinkled with personal anecdotes. The following quote came from Cokie Roberts' reminiscence about summers on a farm.
"It was the women we spent time with, it was from them that we learned about other generations, about how things used to be, and how things would forever be."
