American Woman Quotes
I fall into that nebulous, quote-unquote, normal American woman size that legions of fashion stylists detest. For the record, I'm a size 8 - this week, anyway. Many stylists hate that size because I think to them, it shows that I lack the discipline to be an ascetic; or the confident, sassy abandon to be a total fatty hedonist.

There are whole precincts of voters in this country whose united intelligence does not equal that of one representative American woman.
Carrie Chapman Catt

Many times the rough ideas come from the States, then they are refined in Europe. The American women and the French women are still the best-dressed.
Practices such as arranged marriages and restrictions on girls attending school have deep roots, and changing them is a gradual process.

When I see a fan coming over, I can't help but make an assumption about what they want to talk about. A middle-aged American woman will head over, and I think, 'Game of Thrones.' Turns out it's 'The Tudors' or 'Elementary' or 'The Hunger Games.' It's always a surprise.
