Michelle was given a t-shirt several years ago with Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s infamous quote on it:
Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History
Michelle loves the shirt. She also loves that it tends to cause a stir among the guys at work. They really do not seem to appreciate the quote. It makes them nervous. Imagine that. Young, enlightened men of the 21st century are nervous about women who are not well-behaved. I don’t suppose they are nervous about men are not well-behaved, are they?
Anyway, I was reading my feeds awhile back and saw the cover of the book featured on The Book Design Review and realized Michelle has not actually read the book. And guess what – neither have I. How in the heck did that happen?
I’m ordering it now. Maybe Michelle can just carry the book around when she isn’t wearing the t-shirt. I wonder if any of the guys will be brave enough to take a peek inside.
