I'd just like to note here that "feminists" are far from the only ones
who look to history to provide precedents ("real" or "imagined") for
their ideals. It's a popular (and effective) technique, and one that,
IMHO, in no way invalidates the ideals held by the group employing said
History is, after all, constructed, is it not?
