The object of this little women's study is to call attention to a certain distrust, which the author feels in the modern woman, of the significance and dignity of the work laid upon her by Nature and by society. Its ideas are the result of a long, if somewhat desultory, observation of the professional, political, and domestic activities of women in this country and in France. These observations have led to certain definite opinions as to those phases of the woman question most in need of emphasis to-day. Contents: The uneasy woman -- On the imitation of man -- The business of being a woman -- The socialization of the home -- The woman and her raiment -- The woman and democracy -- The homeless daughter -- The childless woman and the friendless child -- On the ennobling of the woman's business.
