Well behaved women rarely make history

“Whatever women do

they must do

twice as well as men

to be thought half as good.

Luckily, this is not difficult.”

Charlotte Whitton

Neither do well-behaved men, when you think about it. Ergo: no one has heard of me.

Haha! I love this quote! And the photo above it. Women can be still quite underestimated, even though in the 21st century equal rights should be the order of the day...

Ok, so, does this mean we should all want to make history? Or are you looking for an excuse to be honery again?

Sandra said...

Ah, I've rarely been well behaved and I still haven't made history. ; )

So true. Just look at all the "stars" who make the news. I would love to see more stories about positive female role models - like Taylor Swift for instance.
