  • The Greatest Need of College Girls

    “It is so generally felt that man is to admire, and woman to be admired. Thus a woman is born into and inherits a to-be-admired state of mind, and her freedom is delayed in proportion.”

  • Boston

    “We are often praised for what is least ours. Boston too is sometimes pushed into a theatrical attitude of virtue, to which she is not entitled and which she cannot keep. But the genius of Boston is seen in her real independence, productive power, and Northern acuteness of mind, which is in nature hostile to oppression.”
