In inquiring concerning the benefits of the plan proposed, I shall proceed upon the supposition that female seminaries will be patronized throughout our country.
Marriage has a unique place because it speaks of an absolute faithfulness, a covenant between radically different persons, male and female; and so it echoes the absolute covenant of God with his chosen, a covenant between radically different partners.
Being the boss anywhere is lonely. Being a female boss in a world of mostly men is especially so.
After centuries of conditioning of the female into the condition of perpetual girlishness called femininity, we cannot remember what femaleness is. Though feminists have been arguing for years that there is a self-defining female energy, and a female libido that is not expressed merely in response to demands by the male, and a female way of being and of experiencing the world, we are still not close to understanding what it might be. Yet every mother who has held a girl child in her arms has known that she was different from a boy child and that she would approach the reality around her in a different way. She is a female and she will die female, and though many centuries should pass, archaeologists would identify her skeleton as the remains of a female creature.
For a male and female to live continuously together is...biologically speaking, an extremely unnatural condition.
Males inform how often intercourse takes place and whether or not condoms are used. Males can influence how the female feels about pregnancy, whether or not she'll have an abortion, and how the baby will be raised once it's born. And yet our work is one of the first of its kind because we focus on males, while most adolescent pregnancy work has focused only on females and their attitudes on pregnancy.

Lynda Carter played Wonder Woman and was one of the first female superheroes. It gives me more of an encouragement that we can be strong and can do whatever a guy can do.
Perhaps, all writers walk such a line. In general - as we all do in our dreams - I believe I put something of myself into all the characters in my novels, male as well as female.
When I put the shot, it's feminine, because I'm female. Athletic motion doesn't have a gender.
For me the goddess is the female of God, She is powerful if different.
In the USA there is no female equivalent to god.
The fact that my female characters have strong personalities but are also physically attractive probably reflects the women I've known in my life.
We shelter children for a time; we live side by side with men; and that is all. We owe them nothing, and are owed nothing. I think we owe our friends more, especially our female friends.
When I created Buffy, I wanted to create a female icon, but I also wanted to be very careful to surround her with men that not only have no problem with the idea of a female leader, but were in fact engaged and even attracted to the idea.
For in Jesus Christ there is neither male nor female, bond nor free; even you may be the children of God, if you believe in Jesus.
Self-awareness and self-esteem. Those aren't female issues, those are human issues.
I was above all drawn to the opportunity to intimately portray female characters. Up until then my films revolved around male characters plunged into conflict and war.
A big section of our audience is young and female. Housewives like our love songs, but then again, everyone likes to dream about love.
He took offense to that. I don't know if it was a male or a female, (but) they beat the living daylights out of me with their flippers. Instead of taking a picture, everyone just stood there and laughed.
