“Some of the 'New Women' writers will some day start an idea that men and women should be allowed to see each other asleep before proposing or accepting. But I suppose the 'New Woman' won't condescend in future to accept. She will do the proposing herself.”

That didn’t go quite the way Mina mockingly foretold. Men and women are usually sleeping together before proposing or accepting, but men still do the vast majority of proposals in heterosexual marriages (84% to 97%, depending on the source).
