What Else She Said

[My grandmother's] influence only was that she wanted her sons to go to college and her granddaughters to go to college. She kept saying, 'My daughters didn't go, but my granddaughters are going to go.' - I think there was the assumption [by my other family members] that we would go to college. I'm not sure, because people always thought men had to support a family, and women did not.
