Csíkszereda Musings

My life in and around Csíkszereda, also known as Miercurea Ciuc.

1963

Posted by Andy Hockley on 21 September, 2005

Was the year that the following document (which on the face of it seems genuine) was written. It’s about why women shouldn’t represent Australia as trade commissioners.

Contains such enlightened and progressive gems as:

“A man normally has his household run efficiently by his wife, who also looks after much of the entertaining. A woman trade commissioner would have all this on top of her normal work”

and

“A spinster lady can, and very often does, turn into something of a battleaxe with the passing years. A man usually mellows”

Blimey.
