Reading Experience:

'Fortunately for me, about this time I read two books by Joseph Macabe, an ex-Catholic priest, "The Religion of Women" and "Women in Political Evolution", which I still think are the finest ever written on the subject. They are like a film showing women's life throughout the ages, our faults and our virtues, and the economic reasons for our inferiority before the law.'
