Scope and Content

Did not know whether girls' schools were to be included in Schools Inquiry Commission. Strongly opposed to any suspicion of rivalry between the sexes. Will probably always be some men who will do better than any woman, but this no reason for hindering women from doing their best. Not yet known what occupations are really, and what only conventionally, appropriate for women.
