Comment on Modern Girls and Materialism, ca. September 1921


A Modern Girl.

Miss Jane Addams, the famous progressive, was talking about the modern girl's materialism.

"I once remarked to a very modern girl," she said, "that in choosing a husband one should never judge by appearances, which were often deceptive."

"'Right you are,' the modern girl agreed as she fixed a cigarette in her amber cigarette-tube. 'The worst-looking men often have the most money.'"
