Women I went to ask my government if they would set me free, They gave a pardoned crook a vote, but hadn’t one for me; The men about me laughed and frowned and said: “Go home, because We really can’t be bothered when we’re busy making laws.” Oh, it’s women this, and women that and women have no sense, But it’s pay your taxes promptly when it comes to the expense, It comes to the expense, my dears, it comes to the expense, It’s pay your taxes promptly when it comes to the expense.

But when the men all marched to war, they cried to wife and maid, “Oh, never mind about the home, but save the export trade.” For it’s women this and women that, and home’s the place for you, But it’s patriotic angels when there’s outside work to do, There’s outside work to do, my dears, there’s outside work to do, It’s patriotic angels when there’s outside work to do. We are not really senseless, and we are not angels, too, But very human beings, human just as much as you. It’s hard upon occasions to be forceful and sublime When you’re treated as incompetents three-quarters of the time. But it’s women this and women that, and woman’s like a hen, But it’s do the country’s work alone, when war takes off the men, And it’s women this and women that and everything you please, But woman is observant, and be sure that woman sees.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
