1950: Woman: Waster of Energy
There are career women who want to have two jobs ~ because they are 'career women.' ...Even if ill health does not strike them down because of the double strain under which they live, they exist unhappy and frustrated. You can't do two jobs half-well and be as happy as you would be doing one job efficiently. ...[you're wondering] how your husband is holding up on an empty stomach after a hard day's work.
The woman who continues this kind of living cannot easily make a success of it unless she is a combination human being and robot. ...Your home is more important than any job or career you may have on the side. No matter how well you think you are doing, your children and your husband are being neglected. The result is a family that is not a happy unit.
...The happiest women I have known have been those who were content with their destiny: that of mother and wife. ...There is nothing more satisfying than contentment. These women found it.
... Many women wear themselves out necessarily; too many, however, kill themselves without need.
