Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear.
They should never settle merely for equality. For women, ‘equality’ is a disaster.

Heinlein was an influential American science-fiction author, so an image of America’s first woman astronaut, Sally Ride, seemed appropriate.
