“Well encounter opposition, wont we, if we give women the same education that we give to men, Socrates says to Galucon. For then wed have to let women ... exercise in the company of men.

“Youve strung your breasts
with a rattling rope of pearls,
tied a jangling belt
around those deadly hips
and clinking jewelled anklets
on both your feet.
if you run off to your lover like this,
banging all these drums,
do you shudder with all this fear
and look up, down;
in every direction?”
