"In the April 1945 Catholic Worker, Janet Kalven of the Grailville Agricultural School for Women in Loveland, Ohio called for 'an education that will give young women a vision of the family as the vital cell of the social organism, and that will inspire them with the great ambitions of being queens in the home.'
