  • In Shakespear’s plays the woman always takes the initiative.
  • The pretence that women do not take the initiative is part of the farce.
  • That the men, to protect themselves against a too aggressive prosecution of the women’s business, have set up a feeble romantic convention that the initiative in sex business must always come from the man, is true; but the pretence is so shallow that even in the theatre, that last sanctuary of unreality, it imposes only on the inexperienced.
