It's a man's world after all

Sir -- The words 'only a woman' seem to prove more significant to me after the Eamonn Lillis court case. Most days when I read the paper I saw two photos of Celine Cawley -- one showed the 'model' and the other photo showed a smiling, larger woman. I thought back to other court cases and remembered the papers having the 'before' and 'years later' photos of Rachel O'Reilly and thought this would happen to only a woman.
Celine was from the beginning portrayed as a 'strong, determined, successful, bullying type' who earned more than her husband. It is still a man's world, and I hope all of you women out there do not forget it, because it came across loud and clear to me that it was not a great thing for a woman to be more successful than a man.
Why would I say such a thing in this day and age? Well, I never heard of any wives who had killed their husbands as being intimidated by the success of their husbands.
