Show Summary Details


After the Report of the Divorce Committee, the author was invited to become President of the National Marriage Guidance Council. This body carried great work in the shape of reconciliation and of education for marriage. The author gave an address to this body in 1950 in which he outlined the past and looked to the future. This chapter tells more of the story by which women have become equal to men. It discusses that neither of them can do without the other. Neither is above the other or under the other. They are equals. Few disputed the justice of woman's claim to equality: but it is only in recent years that it has been realised. This is one of the most significant revolutions of time. It has tremendous potentialities for civilisation.
