This chapter discusses the author's encounter with the realities of the feminine dilemma and her realisation of the importance sound administration in improving the relationship between society and the individual. It explains that this realisation came as she helped revise and correct the proofs for her husband's dissertation titled Principles of Social Administration in which he argued the case for a sound system of administration as an absolute essential for good government. This chapter explains the lesson learned by the author from her participation in the Liverpool Council of Voluntary Service (LCVS).
