Harriet Robinson

  • Thirty years ago, when the Woman's Rights Movement began, the status of a married woman was little better than that of a domestic servant. By the English common law, her husband was her lord and master. He had the sole custody of her person, and of her minor children. He could 'punish her with a stick no bigger than his thumb,' and she could not complain against him.

  • The common law of this state held man and wife to be one person, but that person was the husband.

  • Skilled labor teaches something not to be found in books or in colleges.
