A Woman Rebels (1936)
Miss Piper, the Governess: As women, the first thing of importance is to be content to be inferior to men, inferior in mental power in the same proportion that she is in physical strength. A really sensible woman feels her dependence. She's conscious of her inferiority and therefore grateful for her thought.
Pamela Thistlewaite: Don't you think that dependence in women is a trait men created for their own protection?
