Anna Elizabeth Dickinson
“This very young man who twirls his moustache in embryo, announces magnificently then, 'Save me from ever marrying a strong-minded woman,' and, looking at the style of young men who are educated to say so, one might devoutly answer, 'Save the strong-minded woman from ever marrying you.'”
“See to it, women who listen to me, as God himself hath commanded, that no man take your crown.”
Anna Elizabeth Dickinson, U.S. orator, abolitionist, suffragist
(1842 - 1932)
