Interesting idea - that the work of cultural understanding equates to
"subordination" in the late 1990s

I think the clue lies in why women like liberal arts--because they are
in the subordinate role, they must learn about people's motivations and

developed a taste for understanding, rather than dominating people. One
hopes. Some of the men now working for egalitarian solutions around the
world do raise my spirits.
