At every turn you can see the products of women activities. The inventions of machines, bringing about great developments in industry, reorganizing production, and transferring much of women's participation in manufacture from home to factory, has so changed the customs and standard of existence and so increased the cost of living that it has revolutionized both the home life find the work life of individuals and has brought new problems in the wake of the many benefits derived.
Large numbers of women have been caught, as it were, in the suction of the high powered wheels of industry. To some have come opportunities of development, to others heavy economic responsibilities, while to others will come opportunities for marriage.
Marriage and happiness go hand in hand, and too many who marry expecting joy are bitterly disappointed. For the demand for freedom grows; because it is never easy to make marriage a lovely thing; for these reasons we are beginning to understand why the Bachelor Women are becoming so numerous. If the economic dependence of woman bred tyrants on the one hand and cowards on the other, the economically independent woman has its own dangers.
It is the purpose of this paper to bring alight to you on the Social Adjustment and the Bachelor Woman.
