Lady Mary Chudleigh

  • 'Tis hard we should be by the men despised, / Yet kept from knowing what would make us prized; / Debarred from knowledge, banished from the schools, / And with the utmost industry bred fools.

    • Lady Mary Chudleigh,
    • title poem, The Ladies' Defence ()
  • Wife and servant are the same / But only differ in the name, / For when that fatal knot is tied, / Which nothing, nothing can divide, / When she the word obey has said, / And man by law supreme has made, / Then all that's kind is laid aside, / And nothing left but state and pride.
