G K Chesterton: Petticoat government

“… when men wish to be safely impressive, as judges, priests or kings, they do wear skirts, the long, trailing robes of female dignity The whole world is under petticoat government; for even men wear petticoats when they wish to govern.”

G K Chesterton, What’s Wrong with the World.
