    The much vaunted male logic isn’t logical, because they display prejudices—against half the human race—that are considered prejudices according to any dictionary definition.
    Eva Figes (b. 1932)

    Providing for one’s family as a good husband and father is a water-tight excuse for making money hand over fist. Greed may be a sin, exploitation of other people might, on the face of it, look rather nasty, but who can blame a man for “doing the best” for his children?
    —Eva Figes (b. 1932)

    Of Eva first, that for hir wikkednesse
    Was al mankinde brought to wrecchednesse,
    For which that Jesu Crist himself was slain
    That boughte us with his herte blood again—
    Lo, heer expres of wommen may ye finde
    That womman was the los of al mankinde.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
