Because men's crimes are always ours in the final analysis, aren't they, Mr. Strike? Ultimate responsibility always lies with the woman -- who should have stopped it. Who should have acted. Who must have known. Your failings are really our failings, aren't they? Because the proper role of the woman is carer, and there is nothing lower in this whole world than a bad mother."
Well, well, Joanne.
