A quote a day for Women's History Month: 24th March

'The trouble is,' said Selena, with a certain wistfulness, 'that you and I, Julia, have been brought up in an era of emancipation and enlightenment, and we have got into the habit of treating men as if they were normal, responsible grown-up people.'
Sarah Caudwell, The Sirens Sang of Murder (1989)
I thought this somehow went rather aptly with yesterday's quotation, though so many decades later: but at least in a rather different tone.
