Three cheers for the subconscious! I've got it working on this and (uncreated yet) epiphanies (thread), and it keeps coughing up results...
I saw a Masterpiece Theater presentation of that over 20 years ago; the narrator (Cooke or Baker, can't remember which) said that Ibsen stated that he wasn't encouraging such feminist cuntery, just documenting it.

Whatever. Encouragement has been the result, intended or not.
