Correct girl, incorrect PLACE
It's challenging to offer peace an opportunity whilst the opposite aspect regards conflict because the useful prelude to conquest, and a sneak assault because the top ability therefore. That's why the dominion of Manticore wishes allies opposed to the so-called ""Republic"" of Haven--and the planet Grayson is simply the appropriate strategic position to make a good best friend certainly. yet Her Majesty's overseas place of work had neglected a ""minor cultural difference"" after they selected Honor Harrington to hold the flag: girls on this planet Grayson are with out rank or rights; Honor's very presence is an insupportable affront to each male at the planet.
At first Honor doesn't take it in my view; the place she comes from gender discrimination is simply a old reminiscence, correct up there in importance to worry of the left-handed. yet in time such therapy as she gets from the Graysonites does develop into donning, and Honor could withdraw if she could--but then Grayson's fratricidal sister planet assaults by surprise and she or he needs to remain and be successful, not only for Honor's honor, yet for her sovereign's, for--THE HONOR OF THE QUEEN.
