Only one I can think of, not sure if it's really what you're looking for haha:

"...Can you for a moment imagine how depressing it is to teach five centuries of masculine ineptitude? Why do you think there are no women historians on TV? I’ll tell you why: Because history’s not such a frolic for women as it is for men. Why should it be? They never get around the conference table. In 1919, for instance, they just arranged the flowers, then gracefully retired. History is a commentary on the various and continuing incapabilities of men. What is history? History is women following behind with the bucket. And I’m not asking you to espouse this point of view, but the occasional nod in its direction can do you no harm.”

-Mrs Lintott, in the film The History Boys
