Details

Young Vivie Warren, emancipated, intelligent and self sufficient is astounded to learn her mother rose from poverty to riches through prostitution, and also that she is now part owner and operator of a chain of brothels. Mrs. Warren ably justifies her past, attacking a hypocritical society that rewards vice and oppresses virtue. Vivie, respecting her mother's courage, accepts her past but not her present.
