Feminists

At the World Women’s Conference, a feminist speaker from Germany stood up: “At last year’s conference we talked about being more assertive with our husbands. After the conference I went home and told my husband that I would no longer cook for him and that he would have to do it himself. After the first day I saw nothing. After the second day I saw nothing. But after the third day I saw that he had cooked a wonderful full roast with all the trimmings.” The crowd clapped and cheered.


A second speaker from America stood up: “After last year’s conference I went home and told my husband that I would no longer do his ironing and that he would have to do it himself. After the first day I saw nothing. After the second day I saw nothing. But after the third day I saw that he had done not only his own ironing but my ironing as well.” The crowd clapped and cheered.

A third speaker from England stood up: “After last year’s conference I went home and told my husband that I wasn’t going to do his laundry any more and that he would have to do it himself. After the first day I saw nothing. After the second day I saw nothing. But after the third day I could see a little bit out of my left eye.”
