Abstract:

With more than 3,000 quotations on fashion, family, science, art, history, love, laughter, and more, this massive compilation proves once and for all that women know everything! It's full of wit, wisdom, and inspiration from a host of legendary women everyone from Abigail Adams and Eleanor Roosevelt to Oprah Winfrey, Donna Karan, Tina Fey, Margaret Cho, Debbie Stoller, and others. Here's what they say about: Fashion: "I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn t itch." Gilda Radner Being Single: "I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something's wrong with me." Elayne Boosler Men and Women: "Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels." Faith Whittlesey Arriving just in time for Mother's Day and graduation ceremonies, Women Know Everything! is a superb gift for thoughtful women of all ages.
