Always remember that you are absolutely unique ... Just like everyone else

Margaret Mead (1901-1978) was a distinguished anthropologist, an intellectual and a scientist. She is the author of numerous books on primitive societies and she also wrote about many contemporary issues. Some of the areas in which she was prominent were education, ecology, the women's movement, the bomb, and student uprisings.

Margaret Mead was a woman who blended knowledge and action. Time, in fact, named her "Mother of the World" in 1969. In the political realm she served as a diplomat, without a portfolio, to many presidents in the areas of ecology and nutrition. She also had a great deal of concern about the role of science and technology in world politics.




Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.


— Margaret Mead
