Example Citation:
" 'Strangely or not strangely at all,' said Ms Carr, 'babes are usually feminists, if you mean by feminism the promotion of all that is good and liberating in our culture. Where the babes part company with their sisters, is when it comes to issue literature. Babes will not reduce their work to a series of issues and disapprove strongly with anyone who tries to reduce their work to a series of issues.' "
— Luke Clancy, "Writer prides herself on being 'a babe'," The Irish Times
