“We are controlled and worried enough by women at the present time”

The reason why a British MP opposed the vote for women all those years ago.

— “We are controlled and worried enough by women at the present time, and I have heard no reason why we should alter the present state of affairs.”

He got a point.

LKY should have heeded this reason

— “You have at the present moment certain statistics which show that both the birth and marriage rate are decreasing.

“Can you adopt at this time a policy which might mean an immense destruction of the population of the country which it is essential should not only be retained, but increased.”

But I assume Mrs Lee told him to give womwn the vote or else. Btw, she made sure he ate simple disgestable food. No Straits food from his sisters when she was ruling the roost.

Other reasons other MPs gave for not giving women the vote:

— “Women are tremendously accessible, extraordinarily impressionable, noted for the adoption of any new thing, and for the easy acceptance of other people’s views.

— “Intuition is far more largely developed in women than in men, but instinct and intuition, although good guides, are not the best masters so far as Parliament is concerned.

“Parliament exists for the very purpose of opposing feelings, fancies, and inclinations by reason.”

— “I daresay that the idealism of the feminine mind and its deadly logic which we have all experienced in private life are qualities superior to those of men, but I do say that in governing a great country and in considering the problems which we have to consider every day in this House such qualities are not valuable, but destructive.”
