There is a speech by Lexy in the beginning of Act I when he is talking to Proserpine:

LEXY. Ah, if you women only had the same clue to Man's strength that you have to his weakness, Miss Prossy, there would be no Woman Question.

I cannot understand the meaning of this speech. What do "Man's strength" and "Woman Question" mean exactly and what does the whole line mean altogether? Are man and woman personified here because they begin with capital letter in the speech? Also question begins with a capital letter. What is the significance of this?
