August 22nd 1947 Awake page 9 - "Women's rights that are Worth-While"
Gulping like a drowning man Homer said there is"no fouler fiend than a woman when her mind is bent on evil." To Alexander Pope woman is "at heart a rake". To Thomas Dekker "woman is, at best, bad". Others going overboard on the other side have repeated the Hindu proverb "One should not strike a woman even with a flower". Sang the poet Herrick: "'Mongst all the rest of creatures, woman is best." But these extremes bear the same stamp of stupidity.
