Thoughts on The Shadow of Woman

“Eve and The Serpent,” Henri Rousseu

I’ve noticed an implicit assumption in some pro-feminist circles that women don’t possess a desire for vengeance — just a desire for equality and respect.

I propose that both can be true.

Assuming women must only be after the good/true/beautiful is a friendlier manifestation of sex bias, because we are assumed to be beings that are caring, loving, and gentle *at all times.*
