"But may not woman, in every way in her power - benefit society by her talents and influence?
Certainly, in every legitimate way. Her sphere is clearly assigned to her by God....
Woman can be spared from the lecturer's chair, the platform of general convocation, and the scene of public business;
but she cannot be spared from the hearth of her husband and the circle of her children!
Substitutes can be found for her in the one, but not in the other.
In the bosom of domestic privacy she fulfills with truest dignity and faithfulness the first and highest obligations of her sex."
