In Fairness to the Menfolk

Two people have arrived here searching for "Though we adore men individually," and of course you remember what comes next. (Link for those who don't).

So I thought I would share these wise words from my writing idol, Rebecca West:

"Another vice incident to woman at present is spiritual pride. She has found the first steps of man's journey upwards quite easy. He had pretended they were difficult, so he gets what he deserves if woman assumes that all the other steps are just as easy, and that the government of empires is as easy as getting a university degree."

And she knew Mrs. Pankhurst.
