Sample text

So why doesn’t high achievement in science qualify a woman as “well-behaved”? Could it be because some people still assume women aren’t supposed to stand out in a crowd? The “well-behaved women” quote works because it plays into longstanding stereotypes about the invisibility and the innate decorum of the female sex. Many people think women are less visible in history than men because their bodies impel them to nurture. Their job is to bind the wounds, stir the soup, and bear the children of those whose mission it is to fight wars, rule nations, and define the cosmos.

Hobart, who believed she had inherited the mantle of her “gifted ancestor,” lovingly cared for the diary, and shortly before her death, gave it to the Maine State Library at Augusta. There it sat, of interest mainly to local historians and genealogists, until a second women’s movement launched a renaissance in history. 27 To all appearances, Martha Ballard was a well-behaved woman. Had she been better-behaved, however—more protective of her own and others’ reputations—she would have inked out the family conflicts and neighborhood scandals that leaked into her record despite her best efforts to remain circumspect.

Her car, which is her second office, carries a familiar slogan. 8 So what do people see when they read that well-behaved women rarely make history? Do they imagine good-time girls in stiletto heels or do-good girls carrying clipboards and passing petitions? Do they envision an out-of-control hobbyist or a single mother taking down a drunk in a bar? I suspect that it depends on where they stand themselves. A manager in a Los Angeles development firm wrote to tell me that she and other members of the staff were outraged when the editor of their company magazine printed my sentence on T-shirts and coffee mugs distributed at a trade show.
