Definition of the New Woman.
It would seem that a working
woman, as a working woman, is
not necessarily the New Woman.
Where is the New Woman? A
diligent search does not seem to
bring her to light. The writer
propounded the question, "What
is your idea of the New Woman?"
First Business Man A female
Second Business Man a wo
Third Business Man A woman
who knows what's what and
can't bo bamboozled.
Fourth "Business Man A wo
man who is educated and keeps
up with the questions of the
day, and doesn't gossip, and has
an opinion of her own.
First Married Woman A crea
ture who smokes and wears
bloomers and rides a bicycle and
hates men and votes.
Second Married Woman An
old maid who wants to gain noto
riety. Third Married Woman A
mother who hopes to gain in
knowledge every day knowl
edge of the laws of health and of
the mind, so that she may know
better how to guide her children;
a woman who'll be less and less
tolerant of any wrong-doing of
her husband which may bring
harm to her family.
Fourth Married Woman Lucy
First Single Woman A wo
man who doesn't want, to get
Second Single Woman Any
woman who is capable of deduc
Third Single Woman Any
woman who istrvinirto make the
most of herself, mind and "body,
heart and soul.
Fourth Single Woman A wo
man who tlr.iks that she has the
same right to representation
in the government that her
brother has, and proposes to
work until that right is conceded
Failure again! Several of
those definitions are very good,
but they cannot all be right,
since thtvy are so different.
Does the New Woman really
exist at all then? To speak in
the vulgar tongue, it would seem
that where there is so much
smoke there must be a little fire.
