Churchill on Women
Recent New York Times coverage noted that the British National Archives has released Churchill commentary that includes minutes of his wartime cabinet meetings, as recorded by Sir Norman Brook, the deputy cabinet secretary.
Some of his thoughts on women, from March 19, 1945:
"I didn't like the idea of their entering Parliament but it turned out better than I feared. Concede the theory and you have no trouble in practice. ...
You can use women in AA [antiaircraft] batteries: why not in Foreign Service? ...
Anything in law to prevent a woman becoming a judge?"
Or how about a president, Prime Minister?
