University Education

University Education

Dear Sir,—While Maren Lidden is dealing with a very important problem which causes a great deal of conflict and frustration, both she and all the women she quotes have neglected a very important result of university education for women. Is this omission itself a reflection on the university woman?

The children of graduates both male and female have a springboard into the future. From the day it is born the child is absorbing the knowledge, the disciplined thought, the critical faculty which is nourished by university education. As these influences spread more widely we may hope that a generation of men will grow up civilised enough to realise the necessity for women to fulfil intellectual and vocational drives similar to those of men, and also to be freed from the intolerable burden of economic independence on man.

Yours faithfully,

B. C. Walsh.
