Humorous, startling, and shocking quotations from fierce and fiery women fill the pages of this sassy little book. Out of the Mouths of Babes continues the tradition started by author Autumn Stephens in her books Wild Women and Wild Words from Wild Women. There is no lack of confidence and sense of self in these women's sayings.

Just take a look at a sampling from the book:
"I don't work out. If God wanted us to bend over he'd put diamonds on the floor." -Joan Rivers, the sedentary comedian

"I like to wake up feeling a new man." -Jean Harlow, arguably the hottest siren of the thirties

"I think women see me on the cover of magazines and think I never have a pimple or bags under my eyes. You have to realize that's after two hours of hair and makeup, plus retouching. Even I don't wake up looking like Cindy Crawford." -Cindy Crawford, supermodel

"I've never had a humble opinion. If you've got an opinion, why be humble about it?" -Joan Baez, singer/social activist

"I'm having a glorious old age. One of my greatest delights is that I have outlived most of my opposition." -Maggie Kuhn, a Gray Panther, not a pussycat

More than 150 outrageously entertaining quotes present mostly well-known women in their outspoken glory. Organized into sections with titles like Gifted Gabbers, Liberated Lovers, and Brazen Biddies, Out of the Mouths of Babes is a perfect reminder to all women that the feminine spirit is alive and well!

Autumn Stephens was born in a New Mexico mining community whose population began to dwindle shortly after her arrival (though she swears this was mere coincidence) and finally faded from the map altogether. Stephens has worked as a medical coder, a phone sex scriptwriter, a composer of fabricated Tarot prognostications, and something called a “special investigator” for the State Bar of California. She is the author of over 20 books for women, including the wildly popular "Wild Women" series published by Conari Press.
