So many politicians today chime in about "traditional" values and how they think women should act, or be forced to act ((link...)).
Here's a traditional voice that predates even Mad Men fantasies. In the 1897 book "Songs and Stories from Tennessee," Tennessee state librarian and archivist John Trotwood Moore first praised Julius Caesar, Horace, and Cicero, then went on to warn,
O these were wonderful men, and wonderful, too, their country, And yet it has passed away, as a bubble when Time blows on it; Passed, as they all have passed, where might is greater than Mother, Passed, as they all have passed, where wife is less than mistress, Passed, as they all will pass, who have no throne for woman.
