Women and children first!

A woman friend of mine posted this comment on Facebook on the Costa Concordia the Italian cruise ship which sank with loss of several lives :

"Women and children first? Why? After all aren't we all "equal?" Sisters doing it for themselves and all that. If only it didn't take a sinking ship to show most people the folly of feminism."
As Lord Curzon  said in 1912:

"What is the good of talking about the equality of the sexes?   The first whiz of the bullet, the first boom of the cannon and where is the equality of the sexes then?"
