For fear of prowling beasts at night They blocked the cave; Women and children hid from sight, Men scarce more brave. For fear of warrior’s sword and spear They barred the gate; Women and children lived in fear, Men lived in hate. For fear of criminals today We lock the door; Women and children still to stay Hid evermore. Come out! Ye need no longer hide! What fear you now? No wolf nor lion waits outside— Only a cow.  Come out! The world approaches peace, War nears its end; No warrior watches your release— Only a friend. Come out! The night of crime has fled— Day is begun; Here is no criminal to dread— Only your son. The world, half yours, demands your care, Waken and come! Make it a woman’s world; safe, fair, Garden and home.
