There was a time when women had to prove their worth, and many took to writing editorials in a variety of professional journals. Responding to criticism that women were poor typists, one female author replied, “The criticism of business men everywhere, who have women employed by them in responsible positions, is that, as a rule, they are more conscientious, neater, more accurate and more accommodating than men employed in the same positions. We are afraid our friend is behind the times.”
