An oligarchy of race, where the Saxon rules the African, might be endured; but this oligarchy of sex which makes father, brothers, husband, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters of every household... carries discord and rebellion into every home of the nation.
Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.
The day may be approaching when the whole world will recognize woman as the equal of man.
Oh, if I could but live another century and see the fruition of all the work for women! There is so much yet to be done.
Independence is happiness.
I think the girl who is able to earn her own living and pay her own way should be as happy as anybody on earth. The sense of independence and security is very sweet.
I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.
Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputations... can never effect a reform.
I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.
She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life.
You would better educate ten women into the practice of liberal principles than to organize a thousand on a platform of intolerance and bigotry.
I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel.
Whoever controls work and wages, controls morals.
Trust me that as I ignore all law to help the slave, so will I ignore it all to protect an enslaved woman.
I do not demand equal pay for any women save those who do equal work in value. Scorn to be coddled by your employers; make them understand that you are in their service as workers, not as women.
