The Woman’s Party is made up of women of all races, creeds and nationalities who are united on the one program of working to raise the status of women.
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.
There will never be a new world order until women are a part of it.
I always feel the movement is a sort of mosaic.
Mr. President how long must women wait to get their liberty? Let us have the rights we deserve.
This world crisis came about without women having anything to do with it. If the women of the world had not been excluded from world affairs, things today might have been different.
We women of America tell you that America is not a democracy. Twenty million women are denied the right to vote.
It occurred to me that I just didn’t see how I could go ahead and continue to eat meat. It just seemed so… cannibalistic to me. And so, I’m a vegetarian, and I have been ever since.
I think that American women are further along than any other women in the world. But you can’t have peace in a world in which some women or some men or some nations are at different stages of development. There is so much work to be done.
I think if we get freedom for women, then they are probably going to do a lot of things that I wish they wouldn’t do. But it seems to me that isn’t our business to say what they should do with it. It is our business to see that they get it.
It may be an instinct, it is with me anyway, when you’re presenting something to the world, to make it as beautiful as you can.
To me, it was shocking that a government of men could look with such extreme contempt on a movement that was asking nothing except such a simple little thing as the right to vote.
It is better, as far as getting the vote is concerned, I believe, to have a small, united group than an immense debating society.
When you put your hand to the plow, you can’t put it down until you get to the end of the row.
Food simply isn’t important to me.
Too many terms corrupts politicians so they only want to be reelected.
When you’re young, when you’ve never done anything very much on your own, you imagine that it won’t be so hard.
