Alice Foote MacDougall Quote
"Explain the antagonism women showed me, as you will, members of the suffrage and feminist movements. I cannot. All I know is thatwhile men sprang ever ready, ever chivalrous, to put business in my way, sometimes even when competitors, women almost invariably turned me down.... The difficulty ... lay in the quality of the feminine mind. The subtle flattery of an adroit salesman pleased them and their order in consequence went to him. Fear, also, in a dim, unrealized way of those "higher up" crushed their initiative, and I pitied them."
