WOMAN'S RIGHTS IN THE GARDEN. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 7 July 1914
WOMAN'S RIGHTS IN THE GARDEN. 1 do believe, thai when it cornea lo gardening a woman lias some rights, oven though they may not be enumer ated in the Constitution. To begin with, I belicvo that: every woman has a right to a garden, It's natural to want to gallon and dig in the dirt and watch things grow and pick dowers and vegetables. And es pecially for tho woman ou the farm. If L were a woman on a farm, I'd havo a pardon or hUve a fight. And it wouldn't, bo a little old weedy corner next to tho hedge, but a nico, big, clean pioco of ground, tho best land on tho farm, fenced hog-and-chicken-tight and plow ed and harrowed by the men folks tho first- tiling in the spring. And above all, a woman is entitlod to good first-class tools to work tho garden with. .Honest, now, sister, what kind of lools have you got to earo for your garden with7 Show 'cm up! I know just about the list, anyway, it's an old I'onimon hoe, probably rusty and dull; a rake with several teeth brokon or bent and th...
