    But stories that live longest
    Are sung above the glass,
    And Parnell loved his country
    And Parnell loved his lass.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Anthropologists have found that around the world whatever is considered “men’s work” is almost universally given higher status than “women’s work.” If in one culture it is men who build houses and women who make baskets, then that culture will see house-building as more important. In another culture, perhaps right next door, the reverse may be true, and basket- weaving will have higher social status than house-building.
