Women and Economics - History Guides Us, the Fierce, Charlotte Perkins Gilman
“to free an entire half of humanity from an artificial position; to release vast natural forces from a strained and clumsy combination, and set them free to work smoothly and easily as they were intended to work; to introduce conditions that will change humanity from within, making for better motherhood and fatherhood, better babyhood and childhood, better food, better homes, better society, this is to work for human improvement along natural lines.”
— Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Women and Economics — A Study of the Economic Relations Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution

To try.

To try.

I’d rather make a mistake

Than not try.

I’d rather reach out

Then stay still.

I’d rather fall on my face

Then never leap.

I’d rather make a fool of myself

Then let the spark walk by.
