Tripping the Prom Queen Quote:
“As with all types of female competition, the perpetual beauty contest is fueled by basic scarcity, what I call the not enough pie syndrome. If there were enough to go around-enough solo violin recitals,good men, high-powered jobs–I believe that female rivalry would be far less sharp. But because women have so little access to the goals they seek, they are forced to compete for a tiny slice of the pie, a situation that cannot help but breed the virulent competitions we have observed.”
