Her bursting indignation against the position of women:
How are we fallen! Fallen by mistaken rules,
And education’s more than Nature’s fools;
Debarred from all improvements of the mind,
And to be dull, expected and designed;
And if someone would soar above the rest,
With warmer fancy, and ambition pressed,
So strong the opposing faction still appears,
The hopes to thrive can ne’er outweigh the fears.
She was a lady born in 1661, born in and married into a noble family and yet she was outraged by the position of women then.
I am only stunned that this is yet too true in the society even after centuries have passed by.
