I’m not a “Supplement” to a Man

Action Against Sexism by Ann Webster:

I run my own business: a previous client told me how nice it was that I had a ‘little job’ to supplement husband’s income. I was the sole earner at the time and had been for over 18 months, so I told him that. He looked confused (his partner stays at home, unable to drive and completely dependent on him) but I think he got the message.
