INDEX OF AUTHORS

owing to the absence of external sexual organs. "Primitive 

woman," remarks Madame Renooz, "proud of her womanhood, for a 

long time defended her nakedness which ancient art has always 

represented. And in the actual life of the young girl to-day 

there is a moment when by a secret atavism she feels the pride of 

her sex, the intuition of her moral superiority, and cannot 

understand why she must hide its cause. At this moment, wavering 

between the laws of Nature and social conventions, she scarcely 

knows if nakedness should or should not affright her. A sort of 

confused atavistic memory recalls to her a period before clothing 

was known, and reveals to her as a paradisaical ideal the customs 

of that human epoch." (Celine Renooz, _Psychologie Comparee de 

l'Homme et de la Femme_, p. 85.) It may be added that among 

primitive peoples, and even among some remote European 

populations to-day, the exhibition of feminine nudity has 

sometimes been regarded as a spectacle with religious or magic 

operation. (Ploss, _Das Weib_, seventh edition, vol. ii, pp. 

663-680; Havelock Ellis, _Man and Woman_, fourth edition, p. 

304.) It is stated by Gopcevic that in the long struggle between 

the Albanians and the Montenegrians the women of the former 

people would stand in the front rank and expose themselves by 

raising their skirts, believing that they would thus insure 

victory. As, however, they were shot down, and as, moreover, 

victory usually fell to the Montenegrians, this custom became 

discredited. (Quoted by Bloch, _Op. cit._, Teil II, p. 307.)
