Wise WomenA short quote denouncing women's attempts at independence from men.
Elizabeth Barton de Trevino
The idea in Mexico is that when women are foolish enough to make themselves independent nobody will look after them any more, and it is nicer to be looked after. No matter how brave the Mexican girl is (and I have seen one snatch off her shoe and go after a rattlesnake with it), she will melt down into feminine frailty the minute a pair of pants appears on the horizon. It is considered sound common sense, nothing more. â€“ Elizabeth Barton de Trevino, condensed from My Heart Lies South.
