Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. William Cobbett:

    Women are a sisterhood. They make common cause in behalf of the sex; and, indeed, this is natural enough, when we consider the vast power that the law gives us over them.

  2. Michael Stokes:

    One of the things I have learned from veteran models is they are most loyal to each other, they will do anything for each other. That is a brotherhood and sisterhood civilians don't get to enjoy.

  3. Gloria Steinem:

    Any woman who chooses to behave like a full human being should be warned that the armies of the status quo will treat her as something of a dirty joke. That's their natural and first weapon. She will need her sisterhood.

  4. Travis Robinson:

    We would see each other in the waiting room, in the hallway and we would always check on each other, then it would come to sitting in the room with each other, and then it was, ‘ If I ’m not here would you check up on baby Travis and if you’re not here I ’ll check on Miriam Ellis, ’ so it kind of evolved into a sisterhood.

  5. Ursula K. Le Guin:

    A Woman is home caring for her children! even if she can't. Trapped in this well-built trap, A Woman blames her mother for luring her into it, while ensuring that her own daughter never gets out; she recoils from the idea of sisterhood and doesn't believe women have friends, because it probably means something unnatural, and anyhow, A Woman is afraid of women. She's a male construct, and she's afraid women will deconstruct her. She's afraid of everything, because she can't change. Thighs forever thin and shining hair and shining teeth and she's my Mom, too, all seven percent of her. And she never grows old.
