The world has always been full of
females too full of them, in fact,
but until the last fifty years or so
a woman a real woman was about
the scarcest' thing on earth.
So long as women were compelled
to marry in order to keep themselves
alive and that was until very re
cently everywhere they cqiildn't af
ford to be themselves. They had to
be whatever would make them most
pleasing to the provider of food and
shelter. Even today the man who can
i suffer the woman he loves to be al
ways her real self has not emerged
from the world of women's dreams.
Eve was the first "new woman."
Our first mother was really the dis
coverer of womanhood. In her little
chat with the serpent she didn't say
to the tempter: "Really, you'll have
to see Adam about that. He does my
thinking for me."
But between Mother Eve and us
were long, dark centuries when wo
man ceased to be woman the equal
and co-ordinate creation with man
and became merely a human brood
er, with neither the eugenic choice
nor the economic freedom of a prize
hen. Those were the dismal ages in
which, as Jesse Lynch Williams, says,
we had no women only females.
In considering this subject I com
mend to anti-feminists the thought
that woman is the only female ani
mal on earth that has even been en
slaved by the male. Lioness, tigress,
bearcat, she,-wolf, the jungle knows
no anti-suffragets. In the forest the
female is, first of all, a creature, with
the need of shelter and. food. She
finds her own cave and her own meal,
and is only seasonally and second
arily female. Outside of the human
race the female parasite is unknown.

WOMEN OF RANK PLAN DANCES
London, England. Women of rank
and fashion are very much interested
nowadays in giving novelty dances.
The latest is the "telephone dance."
Quests are summoned by 'phone on
the same day or not later than one
day before the dance. In connection
with this fad, there is also a tendency
to,revive the minuet, gavotee and oth
er old-fashioned dances.
