Her education is the same as that of a man ... she is able to unfold and exercise her mental powers and faculties. She chooses her occupation in such a way as corresponds with her wishes, inclinations and natural abilities, and she works under conditions identical with man's. Even if engaged as a practical working woman on some field or other, at other times of the day she may be educator, teacher, or nurse, as yet others she may exercise herself in art, or cultivate some branch of science, and yet others may be filling some demonstrative function. She joins in studies, enjoyments or social intercourse with either her sisters or with men, as she may please or occasion may serve. (Bebel cited in Kinnear, 1995, p. 5)
