Erroneous Wisdom - KH

Katherine said, but her actions betrayed… Was beauty the means of her wedded dismay? Or was plainness her reason to be mistress? Women! Rise beyond what's always been professed! Hepburn, she kowtowed to the mores of men... Denigrating her sex, she was no Sophia Loren Shelved, beauty an objectified trophy’s emptiness Women! Rise above what’s always been professed! (12/14/2019)

thank you Ann. I don't claim any wisdom but when a woman claims that certain knowledge is based on something so superficial, that just sounds very unwise lol :)
