Since when have women been superior?

THE EDITOR, Sir:

Let me start by saying I am not a KC old boy. As a matter of fact, that school is the long-time rival of my own.

I would like to commend Carolyn Cooper for the way she brought her point across with both humour and implication. It allows the reader to have a laugh while being 'persuaded', in a sense, and it should really get under the skin of said old boys.

I had one issue, though. Could you clarify what makes the female sex superior and the male sex inferior? To my knowledge, both sexes only function as well as the other with the presence of the other or lack thereof.

Should it not then be assumed that both sexes are of an equal standing? On what grounds can you justify such a claim?
