The answer to the question, “Are men and women equal?”
can be found by opening a book of famous quotations.
Nancy Clark has been an advocate for women in business for 30 years. After graduating in Physics and Geology from UC Berkeley, Nancy entered a sea of men when she began working in the space program at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory—not that she was complaining. She was patiently waiting for more women to enter this realm. When this didn’t happen quickly, she decided to speak up and encourage more women to enter the world of science and technology. During this endeavor, Nancy discovered women were reluctant to speak up anywhere in the public realm: politics, op-ed letters in newspapers, even agreeing to journalists’ interviews. Men were taking on challenges while women were slinking away, afraid that they’d be criticized, afraid that they weren’t 100% confident.
In the past, women were held against different standards—obstacles—making progress difficult. Today the world is changing and Nancy believes most people see these gender obstacles as out-of-date. The world is ready to give women’s voices a chance, but women have to take a step out of the comfort zone.
Nancy Clark’s dream for WomensQuotes is this, “Let us inspire women to speak up. Let us allow women’s voices a fair hearing. Let us motivate women to add their words to the public realm. The world is ready and eager for new insights.”

Pat Fisher, dr. internet
Life is a series of fads.
“The web doc” delivers websites, including this one. Pat’s been doing web work since the “early days” – 1995 – when:
- there were NO ads on the internet (although people did like to talk about themselves a lot)
- there were NO programs to help you design a website, nor were there books to teach you how to make a website; you had to learn from the website or friends (who had learned from the web itself)
- some people could not for the life of them “get” the web or how the web would be changing our lives forever
The web has become tons more complicated since then, but Pat is still passionate about web work and enjoys learning the new technologies.
