The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 78

Institutions for Promotion of Celibacy

Institutions for Promotion of Celibacy.

It is of interest to consider for a moment the results of higher education upon women. . . . It would be too sweeping an assertion to state that women's colleges are institutions for the promotion of celibacy, and yet an examination of the percentage of marriages among college-bred women would lend color to the statement. Dr Dewey found that 23 per cent. of the graduates of women's colleges many; 21 per cent. go into the professions. . . . Another investigator, Miss Abbott, showed that of 8.956 graduates of sixteen colleges, 23 per cent. were married. It would appear that the rate of marriage of college women is decreasing, and that the age at which marriage occurs is becoming steadily later.
