ON THE EMANCIPATION OF WOMEN.  Can women be just at all, if they are so used to loving, to feeling immediately pro or con?  For this reason they are also less often partial to causes, more often to people; but if to a cause, they immediately become partisan, there--by ruining its pure, innocent effect.  Thus, there is a not insignificant danger when they are entrusted with politics or certain areas of science (history, for example).  For what would be more rare than a woman who really knew what science is?  The best even nourish in their hearts a secret disdain for it, as if they were somehow superior.  Perhaps all this can change; for the time being it is so.
