"Women of today are less emo
tional than they were a generation
ago. Girls are less sentimental. A
girl of today knows there is more in
life than gaining a smattering of lit

some empty-pated youth. We are
growing away from sentimentality
about all things, especially about
home life. We know that a woman's
sphere is not bounded by her front
and back doors. Women hare been
denied the proper sort of education
for centuries. It is just now that they
have been given their due. Equal
suffrage means that women will have
an equal right to do big, things with
the men and economic independence
for women means the end of immor
ality." o o 1
