as admirable, but she certainly did not extend her admiration to any 

of its exponents. She was still more stirred by the idea of the equal 

citizenship of men and women, by the realization that a big and growing 

organization of women were giving form and a generalized expression 

to just that personal pride, that aspiration for personal freedom and 

respect which had brought her to London; but when she heard Miss Miniver 

discoursing on the next step in the suffrage campaign, or read of women 

badgering Cabinet Ministers, padlocked to railings, or getting up in a 

public meeting to pipe out a demand for votes and be carried out kicking 

and screaming, her soul revolted. She could not part with dignity. 

Something as yet unformulated within her kept her estranged from all 

these practical aspects of her beliefs. 

 

"Not for these things, O Ann Veronica, have you revolted," it said; "and 

this is not your appropriate purpose." 

 

It was as if she faced a darkness in which was something very beautiful 

and wonderful as yet unimagined. The little pucker in her brows became 

more perceptible.
