“Isabella Beeton was no feminist. She contended that, ‘A good woman should be a good housekeeper, for the latter must possess one of the greatest of all virtues, namely, unselfishness. An utter abnegation of self is almost a necessity with the mistress of a household, for with her rests the question of the health and comfort, if not the happiness, of all its members.” (From “Mrs. Beeton’s Every Day Cookery and Housekeeping Book.”
I urge you to do the right thing ladies and gentlemen, abnegate your selfish desires and instead, read “Good Women Have Their Reward,” to be found on “A View From Outside the Box,” url: adialogue.
