line that jumps out

The line, "Indeed,they can use us" stirred a thought from me. With the political correctness that now exists as compared to the 1950's the fact that women are still "used" strengthen the connection between poet and reader. And the status that women experienced in the '50's is only sugar-coated in the 2000's.
