After listening to Connie's sound-bite about how the women's movement neither of them have real sympathy for has empowered them, Elly reveals her true colours by wondering what outfit will make people take her seriously.

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the middle of a conversation Elly is having with Connie about her wanting to go to court to fight what she mistakenly thinks is Pervrett teaming up with The Man to make her admit that she's a bad driver. Since Connie also doesn't know that all that's happening is that two idiots are wasting the court's time, she praises Elly for standing up for her rights.

Panel 2: We then get a wall of text about how this is what the Women's Movement has done for people like them. It's given them strength, it's given them courage and the determination to stand up for what they believe in (unless it demands actual sacrifice [like having to cope with a gay son] whereupon they revert to meek little housewives who let a big strong man do their thinking). Since Elly is also nominally feminist until it gets in her way, she yells "Right!" like she's Cyclops reacting to something Professor X said.

Panel 3: Elly then says that she knows what she wants to say and how to say it but has one important question for Connie. Connie asks what it is.

Panel 4: Since she's forgotten that most of Lynn's base use the words "spidery" and "man-hating" when describing the feminist they picture as an unkempt slattern, she's gobsmacked when Elly asks her what she should wear.

Summary: This is somehow meant to make a lie of her commitment to the movement. That being said, she can't go wrong with what she normally wears. After all, her default outfit is "stereotypical dowdy librarian" so she'll at least look as if she has some sense.
