Hardened-looking women are in line under a sign saying "Bal." All wear loose shirts and trousers, and their hair hangs loosely. To a man trying to get into the line, one woman says, "This doesn't concern you; why do you get mixed up in it? What's the matter, isn't your man up to it?" (Virginia K. Anderson 12/30/93)
