She (seemingly satirically--the tone is quite over the top) talks about how women have always been more ineffective at this sort of “rough” work and how, like men, they are judged on merits only, not gender. She then criticizes Miss Helen Taylor, a radical feminist running for office in England, calling her a goose. Duncan seems to think she and like minded women are doing too much at once, believing women should earn the right to vote before running for MP.
