Yup. Pretty much exactly that.

Such a wasted opportunity.
Indeed. And it doesn't bear thinking how Sayers would have approached this -- if she'd ever gone near the underlying topic, which obviously she wouldn't.

Exactly. I can only imagine that she might have approached it the same way she wrote Are Women Human? or her criticism of church ritual - with a level head and passion ... once she'd made up her mind to tackle the topic. I guess, she might have approached it differently after Mac than before, too, which would have been interesting.
Exactly! And can't you just imagine the discussions between Lord Peter and Harriet on the topic (sort of like those on the death penalty in "Busman's Honeymoon")? One of them slightly more dogmatic, the other one (possibly Harriet, but I wouldn't even want to bet on that) more understanding towards the woman ... and ultimately a compromise reached that is both principled and humane ...?

I haven't read Busman, yet, but yes, I can totally picture the scene.
Scenes (plural), even! :)
