From Resurrection of the Lady by Paula von Reznicek (1928)

Paula von Reznicek (1895-1976) was an internationally-ranked tennis player, journalist, and writer. In 1928, she published Resurrection of the Lady [Auferstehung der Dame], an illustrated book that served as a kind of compendium of contemporary views on feminine identity. Among other points, Reznicek argued that women needed to participate in sports, which she viewed as energizing and life-affirming. Additionally, she encouraged the “resurrected lady” to take a more active role in social and public life, since male leaders had let women down.
