Conceit in weakest bodies strongest works.

It is inconceivable that women’s bodies were considered the weakest. It is clear that no one ever saw a woman deliver a baby. I guess the prohibition on men being around for such a thing was strong.
But damn. I’ve never had a baby or seen one delivered and yet I still understand very clearly how strong a woman’s body is to accomplish that feat.
But I guess some women couldn’t lift a boulder with the same ease as some men and so ended up labeled as weak.
However – Gertrude is clearly strong as hell. She delivered Hamlet, one would assume, survived the loss of her husband and puts up with a whole lot of nonsense with grace.
This ghost of her husband is an asshole calling her the weakest body. Screw him!
