Friends. Relationships. For women that's what life's about. We are relational beings.

Yet the evidence is that our life-nourishing relationships are being eroded today as we live frenetic, time-pressured lives.

The family is the corner stone of our society. More than any other force it shapes the attitude, the hopes, the ambitions, and the values of the child. And when the family collapses it is the children that are usually damaged. When it happens on a massive scale the community itself is crippled. So, unless we work to strengthen the family, to create conditions under which most parents will stay together, all the rest - schools, playgrounds, and public assistance, and private concern - will never be enough.
Lyndon Baines Johnson
