Excerpt from Weeds: A Story of Women Shifting for Themselves

Weeds is an abbreviation for Weeds that Encumber the Earth, and we have used it to signify the daughters of the well-off the gentlewomen who by the failure of those who Should have provided for them, are suddenly called upon to earn their living in London without any training for it. We have applied this name to them because your weed, according to the old definition, is a ?ower growing out of its proper place.

The cruelty of the situation can never be sufficiently emphasized. The very women who have been brought up to the idea that woman is a queen, born to be loved, honoured and Cherished, have to go into situations where they are treated with a total absence of Chivalry, and are not given a dog's chance - where they are not supposed to live at all or demand life not supposed to have any time or money over for pleasure, which is the Sabbath of the Soul, but to be mere machines like the typewriters on which so many of them work.
