14000 women who teach in the schools
of New York She is president of the
Interborough Association of Women
Teachers and was a leading advocate
in the long struggle which resulted in
equal pay for teachers regardless of
In New York as elsewhere in Amer
ican cities women predominate in the
teaching force but until lately what
men were employed received larger
salaries The women believed they
should receive the same remuneration

aB men doing similar work and finally
they won out But the victory has not
been altogether without Its drawbacks
Heretofore because of the difference
in salaries demanded the tendency
has been to exclude the men in favor
of the women wherever possible
Now however the salaries being
equal the women find themselves dif
ferentiated against whenever men
teachers are procurable The number
of the latter however is limited and
not very many women find themselves
excluded from the better positions
