...........This week’s old overlooked quote...
"The women's entry to the labour market has been the most far-reaching revolution in the second part of our century. In its first phase, this was accompanied by an embittered battle between the sexes, while women secured their new bastions. Many men who today are middleaged got some knubbing, which they never quite have gotten over. Some of the way, this was unavoidable costs, and it is certain that the development is irreversible. The women should not wonder that they must now also pay for the hard-won life style with, among other things, a falling life expectancy.”
The daily Information(Denmark), Editorial (16th of August 1994).
Yes I agree this is cool as a for free tool....How do I contribute?
