The early feminists were right in thinking that, if women were to compete with men in men's pursuits, they would be wise to eschew fine attire. If all women wore a drab and serviceable uniform it may be assumed that the qualities for which men admire women would be more similar than they are to the qualities for which, at present, women admire men.
It must be confessed that men's standard in women is more frivolous than women's standard in men. This is regrettable but not easily to be prevented
