from the moment it has been ejaculated by the male until it has 

reached its goal--the ovum. And as the spermatozoa carry in them the 

entire impress of the man, and the ova of the woman, they foretell us 

the fates of the future boy and girl. The woman's role throughout life 

is a passive and the man's an active one. And in choosing a mate the 

man will always be the active factor or pursuer. So biology seems to 

tell us. Whether education--using the word in its broadest sense--will 

effect a radical change in the relation of man and woman remains to be 

seen. A change putting the man and the woman on a footing of 

_equality_ would be desirable; but whether biological differences 

having their roots in the remotest antiquity can be obliterated, is a 

question the answer of which lies in the distant future. As Geddes and 

Thomson so well said: The differences [between the sexes] may be 

exaggerated or lessened, but to obliterate them it would be necessary 

to have all the evolution over again on a new basis. What was decided 

among the prehistoric Protozoa cannot be annulled by act of 

Parliament. 

 

FOOTNOTES: 

 

[4] Hair-like appendages. 

 

[5] Each ovum has one germinal vesicle; occasionally one ovum may 

contain two germinal vesicles; and from the impregnation of such an 

ovum a twin pregnancy may result.
