"The Fraternity Idea Among College Women: What Does It Stand For?"

Here's another article that addresses the significance of "women's fraternities". The article is dated (from 1912), and it seems that the writer, while being objective in her observations, does not speak very favorably of such circles. I'm sure that those of you who belong to such groups will have much to comment on in regards to her viewpoint:

However, in looking at what she's saying (from the context of addressing the significance of building a strong sisterhood in such groups), do you feel that she is hitting home on the real purpose of such groups? Or is she missing the focus in not recognizing these organizations' success in creating a true sisterhood between its members? How do you feel about her essay?

(and here's a second part to this essay):
