Fecha de nacimiento: 16. Diciembre 1901

Margaret Mead fue una antropóloga
y poeta estadounidense. En sus investigaciones etnográficas de las décadas de 1920 y 1930, puso en entredicho la visión sexista biologista que prevalecía en las ciencias sociales en EE.UU. según la cual la división sexual del trabajo en la familia moderna se debía a la diferencia innata entre el comportamiento instrumental de los hombres y expresivo de las mujeres, y en su estudio comparativo Sex and Temperament in Three Primitive Societies Mead introdujo, en 1935, la idea revolucionaria de que, por ser la especie humana enormemente maleable, los papeles y las conductas sexuales varían según los contextos socioculturales. Fue, así, precursora en la utilización del concepto «género» ampliamente utilizado posteriormente en los estudios feministas. Wikipedia

Quote magazine (15 June 1958)
Contexto: When human beings have been fascinated by the contemplation of their own hearts, the more intricate biological pattern of the female has become a model for the artist, the mystic, and the saint. When mankind turns instead to what can be done, altered, built, invented, in the outer world, all natural properties of men, animals, or metals become handicaps to be altered rather than clues to be followed. Women want mediocre men, and men are working hard to be as mediocre as possible.
"Future Families", in The American People in the Age of Kennedy (1973) edited by David M. Kennedy , p. 108
Contexto: No matter how many communes anybody invents, the family always creeps back.

But such communities are not part of the main world.
