Kirkland, Winifred: The Joys of being a Woman, v.1, 5 May 2008.
‘The Joys of Being a Woman and Other Papers’ (1918).
By Winifred (Margaretta) Kirkland (1872-1943).
It has come to my attention that some members of the forum are not women. They might like to know what they are missing.
‘Poor man is to be pitied not only for the crudity of his mental machinery and the creaking clumsiness of its movement, but for the dullness of the material in which he must work. The truth is that there would be no sex to do the unskilled labor of the world, if women ever once let men be tempted by their superior employments. The surest way of keeping man to his hod-carrying is to let him think that woman spends all her secret hours sobbing for bricks and mortar.’
Also contains essays on other topics.
