Make your voice heard, it’s a privilege and a right.stars and stripes flag

I believe that the influence of woman will save the country before every other power. – Lucy Stone

… even if the right to vote brought to women no better work, no better pay, no better conditions in any way, she should have it for her own self-respect and to compel man’s respect for her. – Susan B. Anthony

… we are not dreamers or fanatics; and we know that the ballot when we get it, will achieve for woman no more than it has achieved for man…. The ballot is not even half the loaf; it is only a crust—a crumb. The ballot touches only those interests, either of women or men, which take their root in political questions. But woman’s chief discontent is not with her political, but with her social, and particularly her marital bondage. – Laura Bullard

… today we round out the first century of a professed republic,—with woman figuratively representing freedom—and yet all free, save woman. – Phoebe W. Couzins

… while one-half of the people of the United States are robbed of their inherent right of personal representation in this freest country on the face of the globe, it is idle for us to expect that the men who thus rob women will not rob each other as individuals, corporations and Government. – Susan B. Anthony

In the courts women have no rights, no voice; nobody speaks for them. I wish woman to have her voice there among the pettifoggers. If it is not a fit place for women, it is unfit for men to be there. – Sojourner Truth

No matter how well-born, how intelligent, how highly educated, how virtuous, how rich, how refined, the women of to-day constitute a political class below that of every man, no matter how base-born, how stupid, how ignorant, how vicious, how poverty-stricken, how brutal. – Mary Putnam Jacobi

So long as State constitutions say that all may vote when twenty-one, save idiots, lunatics, convicts and women, you are brought down politically to the level of those others disfranchised. – Susan B. Anthony

The right to vote, or equal civil rights, may be good demands, but true emancipation begins neither at the polls nor in courts. It begins in woman’s soul. – Emma Goldman

Women have had the vote for over forty years and their organizations lobby in Washington for all sorts of causes; why, why, why don’t they take up their own causes and obvious needs? – Dorothy Thompson
