Excerpt from Social Studies

For six thousand years the history of woman has been a mournful record of helpless resignation to social prejudice and legal tyranny. A doom of expiation laid on the sex, perhaps, for having been first in the transgression. Yet, tradition teaches also that through woman comes the redemption of humanity, and many earnest souls are even now waiting for some diviner revelation of the mission of woman than the world has yet seen.
