    How fortunate for them to be so rescued from death by disease or starvation.

    So...although they survived, it still came with a price. To be breeders.

    "Story of bravery"?? "Forced to flee"??

    That just sounds too much like the left's feeble attempt to make them out as victims, for being sent to Australia.

    See Tipsycatlover's post above.

    What woman didn't want a husband, a home, children, and three square meals a day back then?

    Remember, that was a time before women's attitudes were polluted by feminism.

    Breeder is a perjorative term used by gays against straight men.

    These girls went to find men that loved them and families to raise.

    I agree. The article had a definite gender-fluidist and feminist slant to it.

    Our west was settled partly by mail order brides who came here to marry men they had never met.
