A Quote by Gloria Steinem on women, men, babies, failure, and success

This idea of doing it all is the enemy of equality, not the path to do it.  It's impossible to do two full-time jobs, and an impossible definition of success is just another way of making women feel like failures... Any definition of success has to include social policies that honor families and men who raise babies as much as women do.

Gloria Steinem (1934 -)
