TWELVE The opposition from Women

Overlapping in this chapter of other aspects of German opposition is more inevitable than elsewhere, for obviously there must be a great many women who are opposed to Hitlerism because they are militant Socialists, or devout Catholics, or fervent adherents of the Confessional Church, and what has been said earlier of those bodies must equally apply to these. Yet there are others who hate Hitler simply because they are women, suffering with and fighting for their men. These must have a section to themselves for several reasons, one of which is the fact that the temper of a hundred women who have spent hours vainly waiting for meat, is indubitably a more potent revolutionary force than a stick of dynamite or the most fiery speech of any agitator of any political tint.
