n.— «The first step that women took in their emancipation was to adopt traditional male roles: to insist on their right to wear trousers, not to placate, not to smile, not to be decorative. The first step men have taken in their self-defense is to adopt the language of Therapism: a profoundly female notion this-that all things can be cured by talk.» —“Where women are women and so are men” by Fay Weldon Harper’s Magazine May 1, 1998.
