“My mother had a particular talent of being able to exist comfortably within that image of the loving wife and mother, of being attractive, and at the same time to use her wit, her intelligence, her vanity to break through that and convey to women a sense of real power, integrity and that they themselves could be whole human beings.” - Peter Gabel

She was indeed and she deserves to get all the recognition and love possible (and a blog that’s updated more often - cough - gonna work on that) thank you for following!
