To Melissa Aaron:
I surely hope that you are correct in your assessments. For me, it is
counterintuitive that women were all doormats before 1964 - or whatever date
you may wish to establish. Elizabeth Fox-Genovese certainly indicates that
women were not wimps before the 20th century. Perhaps it is "male history" that
creates "patriarchies."
Yours, Bill Godshalk
