[Author Surname Year Published]


The door to the future city is still closed to women. For centuries women have been considered by their masters as inferior creatures, as beasts of burden or pleasure. The time has come to liberate them. Already they are liberating themselves... The education of women tends to teach them only the art of pleasing. In society as it is conceived, the woman who is incapable of pleasing falls into a state of dependency and inferiority. As  the convent is no longer very much in fashion, one must choose between prostitution and work. The latter has shown that the inferiority of women was only an illusion of the other sex - Arthur Capel [Chaney 2011]
