At a very early age until her death, Philippa was an affirmed feminist. After reading Pearl Buck's Of Men and Women, she became fascinated and at the same time upset by the subject as the book reflected her own goal of bridging together her marriage and career. Philippa's response to the world's omnipresent unequal treatment of women was almost visceral after she saw abysmal examples of women being neglected, abused, and exploited through her many travels. This situation made her want to write a book on the topic, but she later discarded the idea. The more Philippa travelled around, the more radical her feminism became. She discovered that violence against women, though often hidden, crossed geographic boundaries and socioeconomic barriers.
