Famous Creative Women Quotations from . . .

Carol Moseley-Braun
(1947-____) born on
Aug 16
US "politican, lawyer". She was the first black woman to be seated in the U.S. Senate.

It's hard to be the first. It's almost as if I'm subject to a different level of inspection.

I've always maintained that black people and women suffer from a presumption of incompetence. The burdens of proof are different. It just gets so tiresome.
"Defining myself, as opposed to being defined by others, is one of the most difficult challenges I face."
"If I lose, I'm going to retire from politics, practice law, and wear bright leather pants."
"All I really want to be is boring. When people talk about me, I'd like them to say, "Carol's basically a short Bill Bradley." Or, "Carol's kind of like Al Gore in a skirt.""
