QUOTES DU JOUR
ANTHONY, SUSAN B.:
"Now why is it that man can hold woman to this high code of morals, like Caesar's wife - not only pure but above suspicion - and so surely and severely punish her for every departure, while she is so helpless, so powerless to check him in his license, or to extricate herself from his presence and control? His power grows out of his right over her subsistence. Her lack of power grows out of her dependence on him for her food, her clothes, her shelter."
-- Susan B. Anthony, 1875.
