“I don’t think I’ve gotten ahead in life because I am a woman. I’ve always managed to land on my feet. When things get rough it lights a fire under me. I’m smart, I’m a transformer, I’ll adapt. My independence is important to me – I don’t want to owe anything to anyone.” – Daisy Linhares lives in Venice, CA. She is a clothing designer and owner of All Things Fabulous.
“The work that I do now, and the life and profession that I’ve created with my husband is due in part to being a woman. My real love is home cooking and I’ve been able to explore it naturally and parley that love into my work partially because I am a woman and that is a real joy. Sometimes I do beat myself up b/c I felt I should be doing something grander. But at the end of the day I don’t think there is anything more important than feeding people or teaching people to feed themselves.” – Kate Winslow is a recipe developer and editor.

“As a woman I understand beauty. I understand what beauty is outside of myself and inside of myself. I was influenced in the past by societal standards and trying to fit that certain mold. But there’s nothing more beautiful than knowing who you are. No matter what you are beautiful.” – Maya Valentine is studying to become a journalist.
