Reading Experience:

Evidence:

'Yes, I read the article too. It shocked me. I think if it all had to be printed - I mean the advertisement - it was quite enough to do it in the way it was done. I don't see that all this so-called freedom of the sexes and all this calling a spade a spade, has increased morality. I am sure the women of my day at any rate were pure and modest in a way girls aren't now.'
