Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz

(1651 - 1695 / San Miguel Nepantla / Mexico)

Arraignment Of The Men

Males perverse, schooled to condemn
Women by your witless laws,
Though forsooth you are prime cause
Of that which you blame in them:

If with unexampled care
You solicit their disdain,
Will your fair words ease their pain,
When you ruthless set the snare?
