Charlie Chan Aphorism

A woman should always decorate scene like blossom of plum.

-- Charlie Chan, The Chinese Ring

I've always thought the Charlie Chan stories were quite progressive for their time in terms of race.  Not so in terms of women.  This aphorism seems appropriate for the post below.  I wonder what Charlie would say about women's rugby.
