Women you know today, with stories like yours.

“Honestly, Portia deGrassi and I would probably be great parents. But it’s a human being, and unless you think you have excellent skills and have a drive or yearning in you to do that, the amount of work that that is and responsibility — I

wouldn’t want to screw them up! We love our animals.”

Ellen DeGeneres

“Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.”

- Oprah Winfrey, Actress, media executive & philanthropist

“As somebody said, ‘Everybody with a womb doesn’t have to have a child any

more than everybody with vocal cords has to be an opera singer.”

 - Gloria Steinem, Feminist Activist & Author

“I thought for the longest time that [having children] would be something that just happens. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized it’s not necessarily something that I need or want.

 –Daisy Fuentes, TV host, model

“Anyone who thinks everyone should have children has never worn one-size-fits-all pantyhose.”  

-Miss Manners (Judith Martin), Advice columnist

“The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply

uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s

counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow

incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.”

 - Jennifer Anniston

“No, I’ve never regretted it. I’m so compulsive about stuff. I know that if I had ever gotten pregnant, of course, that would’ve been my whole focus. But I didn’t choose to have children because I’m focused on my career and I don’t think as compulsive as I am that I could manage both.” Betty White

“I often think, it just wasn’t meant for me to have kids, so everybody’s kids can be mine.”


- Dolly Parton
