Reeves points out, from the more •remunerative occupations—perhaps in order to .wake > her acquiesce in what Sir Almroth Wright: calls 'woman's intrinsically inferior money -earning. capacity'—man has made woman not merely into a wage-earner, but, taken as a whole, <in the world of labour, unfortunately, 'also into, a 'blackleg,' insidiously undermining the wages of man himself. ; . . :
