Lessing at Hay

See the Guardian and BBC:
But asked by a member of the audience if it was men who waged war, she replied: "I have not noticed that women, when they get to be prime ministers are particularly peaceful."

On the contrary she said some of the worst crimes had been committed by women.

She said: "We like to think we are motherly and kind and that we are not going to go to war, but it's not true, is it?"

Good to see someone admit that. Women's hands aren't too delicate for work, nor brutality. Men's not too tough for tenderness either.
