World's future depends more on women

"The future of the world depends more on women than on men and it is the function of the school to develop the special endowments of womanhood and provide the props on which it can be built up."

Saying that it would be "a horrible thing" if parents encouraged boys and girls to be equal in their striving in schools, Mgr. Bernard Manion, secretary of the Diocesan Schools Commission. addressed pupils and their parents of tile Holy Child Consent in Birminglitm, at their prizeaiving last week.

God has given women special endowments, moral and intellectual, he continued. and if girls are to be made mere copies of men, these endowments would be distorted.

A lack of co-operation on the part ot parents was referred to by the Reverend Mother in her review of the scar's work. The school could not secure academic successes if girls did not do their homework, she said. and .idded, girls who could not manage their homework should be sent to another type of school.
