Wonder Woman

The February issue of Town & Country is the Wonder Woman issue in which powerful accomplished women are praised. This issue had Diane von Furstenburg on the cover and I adore this quote she gave in the article:

I believe that a woman must have childen because I think that's what we're made for-we give life. But I do believe equally that a woman should have her own identity outside her family-for her self-esteem, for her children, even for the respect of her husband. It's so important not to lose yourself. Women must work. If you don't it's bad for you. It doesn't make you a better mother to stay home; it is the worst idea. Women work anyway; they might as well get paid for it. And your children will thank you for it, because otherwise you're too much on top of them.
