In Scotland, it was required that a woman who was thinking of taking advantage of the leap year privilege must let her intentions be known by wearing a scarlet flannel petticoat. The edge of the petticoat must be clearly visible in order to give the wary male a sporting chance to get out of the way. This is obviously a man-made rule.
**Howard V. Harper
“She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city”
It is easier for the mare when a woman gets off the cart.
**Russian Version of ‘no women, no cry”
An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.
“I cannot think well of a man who sports with any woman’s feelings and there may often be a great deal more suffered than a stander-by can judge of.”
