Feminism: Infinite Monkey Theorem

By : Orwell wrote in his book The Road to Wigan Pier:
“The truth is that, to many people calling themselves Socialists, revolution does not mean a movement of the masses with which they hope to associate themselves; it means a set of reforms which ‘we’, the clever ones, are going to impose upon ‘them’, the Lower Orders. On the other hand, it would be a mistake to regard the book-trained Socialist as a bloodless creature entirely incapable of emotion. Though seldom giving much evidence of affection for the exploited, he is perfectly capable of displaying hatred—a sort of queer, theoretical, in vacuo hatred—against the exploiters.”
Orwell, like most of the authors we read in high school, had a unique insight into the human condition; an insight that educators once thought was critical to share with young minds.
A simple Google search on the greatest authors of all time shows the gendered reality of literature.
