As a chronicler of characters such as Scott of Antarctica and Ernest Shackleton, Joanna Grokhovich knows a couple of things about machismo.

Major General Cordingley said. “She was a good lady. He had this horribly bad upbringing that fixed his whole idea of ​​what to do in the world.

“Is that masculine?” Mrs. Grokhovich answered. “I do not mind a woman being called a man. I think Joan is a classic example of someone who embodies both [manliness and femininity]. And why can’t we celebrate? He traveled the two worlds, in fact he was incredibly successful.

“You do not have to be an open muscle to be a man, you just have to have self-confidence, be able to hold your place, be able to openly express your opinion.”
