“To the extent . . .” Margaret Mead

“To the extent that either sex is disadvantaged, the whole culture is poorer, and the sex that, superficially, inherits the earth, inherits only a very partial legacy. The more whole the culture, the more whole each member, each man, each woman, each child will be.” Wise words from Margaret Mead, cultural anthropologist, author for whom an area beside the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she worked for many years, is dedicated to her as the “Margaret Mead Green.”
