Virago and Battle-axe

Updated: May 19

’’As a general rule, it is highly desirable that ladies should keep their temper: a woman when she storms always makes herself ugly, and usually ridiculous also. There is nothing so odious to man as a virago. Though Theseus loved an Amazon, he showed his love but roughly, and from the time of Theseus downward, no man ever wished to have his wife remarkable rather for forward prowess than retiring gentleness. A low voice "is an excellent thing in woman.’’ — Anthony Trollope, Barchester Towers

"We still think of a powerful man as a born leader and a powerful woman as an anomaly." —Margaret Atwood
