Interesting words - William Styron

"Southern women of all classes, probably more than women anywhere else, have for generations been valued for their physical beauty to the exclusion of any other quality. The ethos of the plantation, with its stress on male dominance, allowed very little room for the development of women's intellectual capacities, except in a closeted way and then only with vast condescension on the part of the men."
