And that's what women are doing in nine tenths of the world today. When they are doing anything else, although they may be free and rest- ed and groomed and lovely as to hair and skin and' fingernails, and up on the latest lunch dishes and bridge points of The Four Aces, they are also apt to be bored frightfully, as the;r more hard-working sisters never were bored, and sometimes Just Isn't Living. To live in one dull apartment, year in and year out; to agree that having children is too much of a risk to run; to follow the example of other stupid women blindly, won- dering all the while why life tnstes so flat, is to grow gradually less and less aware of the amazing op- portunities all about her, to forget what freedom and independence are to sink gradually into an atrophied condition from which nothing can arouse her!
