Woman’s Rights in Poland

Woman’s Rights. – Major Tochman, the Polish exile, in a recent lecture, said, ‘during the war with Russia, even the Polish women engaged in raising forces, and taking command of them. One was created a colonel, another a captain, others lieutenants, and in one instance, a lady was the first lieutenant of a troop, in which her husband was second lieutenant, and subject to her command.’
