More than 60 years ago, a woman exploring the home she’d just bought found more than 600 love letters in the attic, hidden in a gold-trimmed hatbox. The couple involved met only a few times before the man, a soldier, shipped off to Europe during WWII. Their romance carried through the war to a wedding two weeks after his return to the United States, and a short, happy marriage. 
Two generations later, the romance of Sally Ann and Charlie lives on, thanks to a happenstance meeting in a New York restaurant and Sally Ann’s granddaughter, Newsweek writer Abigail Jones. 

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
