Declaration of Rights for Women, July 1876
" We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever."
   
The Seneca Falls Declaration on Women's Rights, July 19-20, 1848
" Woman has too long rested satisfied in the circumscribed limits which corrupt customs and a perverted application of the Scriptures have marked out for her, and that it is time she should move in the enlarged sphere which her great Creator has assigned her."
   
Elizabeth Stanton Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902), Social reformer and suffrage leader
" The women of this country ought be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live, that they may no longer publish their degradation by declaring themselves satisfied with their present position, nor their ignorance, by asserting that they have all the rights they want."

“ We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal.”

   
Susan B. Anthony Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906), Pioneer of the U.S. Women's Suffrage Movement
" Independence is happiness."
" Failure is impossible."
" There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers."
" I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself and there I take my stand."
   
Susan B. Anthony Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906)
On the campaign for divorce law reform, 1860

“ Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation.”
   
Elizabeth Blackwell Elizabeth Blackwell (1821-1910), First U.S. female medical doctor
" If society will not admit of woman's free development, then society must be remodeled."
   
Alice Paul Alice Paul (1885-1977), Women’s suffrage leader
"I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality."
   
Marion Wright Edelman (1939- ), Attorney and civil rights advocate
" If you don't like the way the world is, you change it. You have an obligation to change it. You just do it one step at a time."
   
Betty Friedan (1921-), Author (The Feminine Mystique,1963), Women’s Rights leader
“ The problem that has no name - which is simply the fact that American women are kept from growing to their full human capacities - is taking a far greater toll on the physical and mental health of our country than any known disease.”
   
Hon. Dianne Feinstein (1933-), Senator, U.S. Senate
On women's role in government

“ Toughness doesn't have to come in a pinstripe suit.”
