    I admit to some sentimentality about that picture in my post because I was sick in hospital a few times in my mid-teens in the early 1970s and the nurses – while they did not quite dress like or behave like that – did have a traditional femininity about them which I remember very fondly.

      I would have found your experience with them refreshing. I can see why it stuck in your mind.

      These days women act like a bad imitation of bratty teenage boys (no not men), only with PMS.

        I am quite serious when I say that women are happier and look better under patriarchy. I remember women as happier when I was younger (not that Australian women are that bad, on the whole, even today).
