QUOTES DU JOUR
STANTON, ELIZABETH CADY:
"Though woman needs the protection of one man against his whole sex, in pioneer life, in threading her way through a lonely forest, on the highway, or in the streets of the metropolis on a dark night, she sometimes needs, too, the protection of all men against this one."
-- Elizabeth Cady Stanton, History of Woman Suffrage.
