IDA Jl TARBLLL Is. contributing a series of articles to the American Muguilnu whose title's alone suE- ticlently Indicate the .vlUU, .nature of their contents: "Tho Uneasy, Wo- "Making a Man of'Herself" and 'The Business of Being' a Woman.' The writer's contention is that woman, In extending her In follow- ing her domestic industries out Into the fuctoVy and carrying her feminine" intuition into the pro- fessions, 'arts, sciences, business, and politics, is perverting her. nature, or 'making a man of herself." Miss Tarbell's statements are -rousing :the indignant puzzled- com- ment of progressive women alt over the country. At a recent mass meet- ing In New. York City, four represen- tative femlnlnlsts undertook to refute her assertions. The article -entitled 'Making a Man-of Herself" was- an- swered by Charlotte. Perkins Oilman, author of "Women and Economics" and "The Man-made World." Miss Tarbcll's-article and Mrs. Oilman's re- ply are of Importance because they express not only the opinions "of two very eminent women, but the .opposi- tion of two ethical standards now agitating-; the.-world. Both of' these writers urge women to a greater social1 activity" as a pre- sent-day necessity. 'Miss Turbell, however, would concentrate ac- tivity on the. home, making it more intensive; Mrs. .Oilman, on the con- trary, argues for a further extension of women's work into-the They agree that the basic fact of woman; s life is motherhood But here their opinions diverge. :M'tes Tarbel! terms making n man of herself Mrs Oilman states as making a hu- man being of herself What Miss Tarbell considers an of man's kingdom" :Is the progress of women in 'Mrs. Oilman's jphlloso- phy The business of being a wo- rn in accbrdlng'to Miss Tarbell, "har lure's reason., for .her, Is the his bearing: and rearing."
