"Comment los angeles femme fait-elle l'apprentissage de sa , remark l'éprouve-t-elle, dans quel univers se trouve-t-elle enfermée, quelles évasions lui sont permises, voilà ce que je chercherai à décrire. Alors seulement nous pourrons comprendre quels problèmes se posent aux femmes qui, héritant d'un lourd passé, s'efforcent de forger un avenir nouveau.

Il ne s'agit pas ici d'énoncer des vérités éternelles mais de décrire le fond commun sur lequel s'élève toute life féminine singulière."
