“They talk about a woman's sphere as though it had a limit; / There's not a place in earth or heaven, / There's not a task to mankind given, / There's not a blessing or a woe, / There's not a whispered 'yes' or 'no,' / There's not a life, or death, or birth, / That has a feather's weight of worth / Without a woman in it.”
Kate Field, U.S. journalist, lecturer, actor
(1838 - 1896)
