___In 1926 and 1927, the Nation published 17 anonymous essays by "women active in professional and public life."_ The editor's objective was "to discover the origin of their modern point of view toward men, marriage, children, and jobs." In her introduction, Elaine Showalter discusses the issues raised --- from alcoholism to celibacy, from mother-daughter relationships to politics --- and identifies and examines the lives of the authors, among whom are Crystal Eastman, Mary Austin, and Genevieve Taggard.
