women don't wage war the way men wage war

Wednesday, July 25, 2007
"Women don’t wage war the way men wage war, not at first, not unless there’s no other way. Men wage war in the open plains and deserts, donning full body armor, lugging lethal weapons. Women wage battles so imperceptibly that it’s not always clear there’s a battle at all, like tremors in the earth that you can’t quite feel it. But you may notice the wind is suddenly odd or the animals are acting funny."

- Ada Brunstein, “The House of No Personal Pronouns,” The New York Times, 22 July 2007
