A5 - A French language edition trade paperback book in good condition.A clean, sound copy in tan wraps with minor overall shelf with browning of the paper. 'L'Amour Sous le Masque: Une enquête sur la vie féminine' (Love Beneath the Mask: A Survey of Female Life). Men appear to know women and assume the right at all times to speak for them. If they are so confident in this it is because there are so few popular women writers who analyze their own feelings (circa 1937) or else who flatter these 'masters of the hour'. Men state an opinion that is not representative of what women actually think and that women actually keep their true opinions to themselves. The author of this book, whose work on Social Sexology is well known, asked a thousand women from all social classes, of all philosophical and political opinions, a series of questions concerning the role of women in society and in the family, as well as in private life in and out of marriage. 568 women responded to his survey. In this book they reveal, with touching frankness, their own experiences, feelings, joys, sufferings and views on major social problems of the moment: sexual morality, prostitution, sterilization, homosexuality, frigidity, exhibitionism, the roles of men and of women, their sexual and moral behavior, marriage reform, the secret causes of divorce, sexual frigidity, etc. This book, with rare objectivity, makes this stunning and original documentation available to researchers, physicians, educators, religious leaders, politicians, and men and women for whom social progress is not an empty word. It develops and brings into question many of the erroneous ideas that have been held in good faith about twentieth century women. Marc Lanval was an active member of the 'Sociéte de Sexologie de Paris' (Sexology Society of Paris) and President of the Mouvement Hélois (a naturist group). Winner of the 1937 Paris Silver Medal for Art, Sciences and Letters (Lauréat Médaille d'Argent 1937). Sold with an advertising leaflet. Une enquête sur la vie féminine: Une enquête sur la vie féminine. Les hommes se figurent connaître la Femme et s'arrogent le droit en toutes circonstances de parler en ses lieu et place. S'ils sont à ce point persuadés, c'est que les rares femmes de lettres qui ont la faveur du grand public, n'analysent que leurs propres sentiments ou flattent ceux des maîtres de l'heure. Elles exposent une opinion dont le moins qu'on puisse dire, c'est qu'elle n'est pas représentative de ce que la Femme pense et de ce qu'elle préserve dans le fond de sa conscience intime. L'auteur, dont on connait les nombreux travaux de sexologie sociale, a posé à un millier de femmes de toutes les classes sociales, de toutes les opinions philosophiques et politiques, une série de questions concernant le rôle de la Femme dans la société et dans la famille, ainsi que sur la vie intime dans et hors du marriage. 568 femmes ont répondu à son appel. Elles dévoilent avec une franchise touchante, leurs propres expériences, leurs sentiments, leurs joies, leurs souffrances et leurs opinions sur les grands problèmes sociaux du moment: morale sexuelle, prostitution, stérilisation, homosexualité, frigidité, exhibitionnisme, le rôle de l'homme et de la femme, leur comportement sexuel et moral, réforme du mariage, causes secrètes des divorces, de la frigidité sexuelle, etc. Ce livre, d'une objectivité rare, apporte une documentation sensationnelle et originale aux chercheurs, médecins, pédagogues, religieux, politiciens, ainsi qu'aux hommes et femmes pour lesquelles le progrès social n'est pas un vain mot. Il met au point et surtout renverse les idées que l'on prétait, de bonne foi sans doute mais erronément, aux femmes de notre siècle. Marc Lanval était membre actif de la Sociéte de Sexologie de Paris, Président du mouvement << Hélios >>, etc. Lauréat Médaille d'Argent 1937 << Arts, Sciences, Lettres >> Paris.
