Abstract:

"This book is designed to bring the sexes closer together, not to set them apart by placing one above the other. If in these pages the natural superiority of women is emphasized, it is because the fact has thus far received far too little attention, and the time is long overdue that both men and women become aware of it and fully understand its meaning. Natural superiority does not imply social inequality; on the other hand, the plea of this book is for more mutual love and understanding, and complete social equality of the sexes. We must acquire a sense of values that will enhance the appreciation of the sexes for each other."--Foreword, page 13.
