    • (About Ronald Reagan.)
      Eve: The best make-up on any man or woman that I've ever seen.

    • Eve: I still feel sorry for women in charge now because they can't seem to do anything right. If they look glamorous, that's wrong; if they look mousy, that's wrong; if they have babies, that's wrong; if they don't have babies, that's wrong; if they're slim, that's wrong; if they're fat, that's wrong. There's no right way of doing it. Nobody looks at blokes in boring suits and criticises them.

    • Eve: As an editor, I had one very bolshie male feature writer who went around all the bars in Fleet Street saying he wouldn't take orders from a woman. When I started, I said, 'Look, how are we going to resolve this?' and he said, 'Well, why don't you send me a memo?' Of course the whole point about newspapers is that they're fast, so you don't have time to sit and write a memo. Anyway, in the first week I sent one journalist off to Los Angeles, another to the south of France. And neither of them was him. After a week, he said, 'It's OK, you don't have to send me a memo'

    • Eve: I've a daughter and a granddaughter, and while I'm interested in research into life-or-death issues facing women, I'm also very interested in problems women have with quality of life, whether it's painful periods, hot flushes or menopausal women having trouble getting to sleep.
