„Four men describe how their wives hit them in the lower back with a pole, cracked them over the head or in the neck with a frying pan... the audience renews its laughter after each story. The men are part of a “PMS Men’s Support Group.” Imagine an audience of men laughing as battered women describe how their husbands threatened them with brain or spinal cord injuries by battering them over their heads or in their necks with a frying pan.“
— Warren Farrell author, spokesperson, expert witness, political candidate 1943
