Jean Devanny, Sugar Heaven

“Organisation is for the purpose of developing the latent talents of the women. See how we live! Nothing uplifting about our lives is there? We’ve got no objective. We live and breed and die. Life isn’t meant to be like that. Life is meant for joy and expansion and objective living. I think it’s the job of women to rear a race of young who will live better lives than we live; who will be able to create a better world than we, their elders, have been able to create. It’s not a question of what women can do; it is what can’t they do?
