Comment:        Re: SHK 4.0963  Re: Shakespearean Daughters
I have a difficult time accepting the word "patriarchy." If all cultures, at
all times and places, have all been patriarchies, what does the word tell us?
If everything were colored pink, what would the word "pink" tell us? I've even
been told that "patriarchies" can be ruled by women.
And are the female characters silenced at the end of THE COMEDY OF ERRORS?
As Otis Mitchell reminds us - always, all generalizations are wrong - including
this one.
Yours from the mountains, Bill Godshalk
