Historical quote of the day

“[T]he individual must see that her interests are shared with those of the State; at the same time that the French woman recognizes her feminine significance and is reborn to a new youthfulness through motherhood, she will serve society and achieve the social role expected of her.”
- Santé, beauté, maternité (1941), Vichy familialist propaganda; quoted in Miranda Pollard, Reign of Virtue: Mobilizing Gender in Vichy France (1998), p. 51
