Of the Roman noblewoman Fulvia (wife of Marc Antony), the historian Plutarch wrote, “She was a woman who took no interest in spinning or managing a household, nor could she be content to rule a husband who had no ambition for public life: her desire was to govern those who governed or to command a commander-in-chief. And in fact Cleopatra was indebted to Fulvia for teaching Antony to obey a wife’s authority for by the time he met her, he had already been quite broken in and schooled to accept the sway of women.”
Apparently, that passage is supposed to be insulting. Screw that! Fulvia sounds pretty damn fabulous to me.
