The Future of Woman

Nature volume 140, page 486 (18 September 1937) | Download Citation



THIS little book forms a supplement to the author's "Lysistrata", which he now regards as too mild an indictment of feminism. As in his previous works, he maintains that one of the first and principal steps in the regeneration of the Western world is a masculine renaissance of man both as animal and as spirit. Feminism he regards as "nothing more than a government of odd people, by odd people, for odd people". In conclusion, he declares that there can be no solution of life's problems for normal women which leads them away from their normal function of nursing and training children.
