But it was my dad who said, to both of us, my sister and I, it's going to be a woman's world, and you will be able to achieve anything you want, and he was committed to helping us do that. He just thought it as a woman's world, he adored my mother and just really respected her and her work and her career. And wanted us to not be dependent on a man for our definition of ourselves. He so loved her independence. And I don't even know that my mom saw herself that way, she saw herself as a plain old woman. But all the women in our family... my mom's first cousins, were doctors and lawyers, and professional women, her sister was a teacher also. She sort of took it for granted that that's how women were.
