A quote a day for Women's History Month:10th March

When men decide that a woman has character and will be all right, they usually also decide that there is no need to worry about her feelings.
Stella Gibbons, Here Be Dragons (1956)
Stella Gibbons is best known for her brilliant fantasia on rural life, Cold Comfort Farm, a satiric riff on the earthier novels of the interwar era, but although that is full of the most wonderful lines worthy of quotation, I thought I'd go for one of her much less well-known but still excellent later novels.
