The ancient Roman comic playwright Plautus coined the expression
homo homini lupus est (“man is a wolf to his fellow man”).
I’d like to adapt it to fit what is known as the “gender debate” –
femina feminae lupa est
because I have noticed for some time that women can be the greatest opponents to gender equality, and I’ve been affected by this myself. The latest example I’ve come across is a lead article by Martina Salomon in the Austrian newspaper Kurier.
