The Weaker Sex, Swedish film poster, 1917
""A play of particular interest to women" is a description given to The Weaker Sex at the Liberty today and tomorrow, in which the three stars, Dorothy Dalton, Charles Ray and Louise Glaum, are presented in the leading roles.
Miss Dalton has the part of a successful woman lawyer who, when she wins a verdict of acquittal for a girl charged with murder, wins also the admiration of the prosecuting attorney and later becomes his wife.
After marriage the wife wants to help her husband in his work, but he insists her place is in the home. But when her stepson (Charles Ray) is in peril, charged with the murder of an evil woman (Louise Glaum), she proves that her trained mind has a very definite value. The boy is acquitted through her handling of the evidence, and therefore and thereafter she has her coveted place at the husband’s side.”
