Excerpt from Report of the Illinois Woman's Exposition Board: From 1891 to 1894

A great event in the history of our country, and in the life of every individual who came within the influence of the World's Columbian Exposition, has passed.

To men the great opportunities of life have come and gone until they are forgotten almost before they are past. Not so with women. On the occasion of the celebration of the discovery of America women throughout the world received distinguished recognition. Upon them at that time were con ferred honors which bore weighty responsibilities. Recalling our history, and listening again to the story of the part noble Isabella of Spain played in the great explorer's life, it almost seems as recognition to her queenly generosity that women on this particular occasion should in her memory have been called upon to assist in making the memorable event more complete by their assistance. But this is only a pretty fancy. The facts are quite free from fancy or sentiment.

The facts indicate most clearly growth - not material growth, or physical growth, but mental and moral growth. That peculiar fabric, society, has been gradually taking into its design a new thread. It is giving life and char acter to the whole social woof and warp. The name of that new thread is woman. It may be argued that woman has always been a part of society. Certainly she has, as one of our distinguished scientists recently assured us.
