Gilder: Imitating Men

“The women who succeed in sports, however, usually do not embody or dramatize the power of women or their athletic ability. Unlike men, who succeed in athletics largely in proportion to their manliness – by perfecting their male bodies – women succeed by suppressing their femininity and imitating men.”

– George Gilder, Men and Marriage (p. 122)
