Beatrice Winser (1869 - 1947)was a pioneering leader in the visual arts and
education. She headed the Newark Public Library and Newark Museum.  In this
Newark Sunday Call article, dated 1923, Winser expresses her concern that the
basis for a New Jersey Senate bill that would legally provide workers’ rights
for women by not allowing them to do night work, was falsely predicated on
the idea that women should be treated differently than men. She felt the
grounds for such a legal remedy would only continue to put women in a
second-class position.
