Note 029
by Joachim C. Fest

29 Quoted by C. Kirkpatrick, Women and Family Life. Elsewhere Goebbels enlarges on this:

'It is not because we do not respect women, but because we respect them too highly that we have kept them away from the parliamentary-democratic game of intrigue determined by the policies of the past fourteen years in Germany' ('Deutsches Frauentum', in Signale der neuen Zeit).

In fact, it was nothing but a definite contempt for women; the remark by Hitler in his Tischgesprache, entry for 12th April 1942, is an example of this.

From Chapter 21, German Wife and Mother , Part 3 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest -- See further Notes
