Wives at cocktail parties, before and after the movement

“The ignorance and isolation of most women mean that they are incapable of making conversation: most of their communication with their spouses is a continuation of the power struggle.  The result is that when wives come along to dinner parties they pervert  civilized conversation about real issues into personal quarrels.  The number of hostesses who wish they did not have to invite wives is legion.”

The Female Eunuch by the renowned feminist, Germaine Greer, 1971
