I'm now working on Mr Skeffington for the MR library, which Elizabeth von Arnim's last book. I need help with

Denn die Frau bedarf der Leitung
Und der männlichen Begleitung

I think I understand the translation, but is 'accompaniment' the best translation for Begleitung? Is there a better word to use?

This is a variation of the same verse that you already asked about in this thread.
I'd translate männliche Begleitung in this context as male companionship.
