Abstract: There exists a commonly held assumption that men are superior to women in most areas of activity except child reading and household management. This view has been mysteriously implanted in a good number of women. No doubt they theorise under the spell of the other 'superior' half. In the areas of activity where women have become accepted - industry, offices, teaching posts, the civil service - they are confined in most cases, to the lower or middle levels of responsibility and decision making. In the Civil Service, the female citizen automatically loses the right to her employment if she decides to marry. In this state of affairs women are the listeners the audience, some even rising to the status of backstage assistants, watching a drama group composed of men. [excerpt]
