Women's Voices: Quotations by Women
Quote collection assembled by Jone Johnson Lewis
Quotation: One man's mind differs from another man's mind far more widely than all women's minds differ from all men's.
Quotation: Given two bridge-builders, a man and a woman, given a certain bridge to be built, and given as always the unchangeable laws of mechanics...it is simply inconceivable that the preliminary instruction given to the two bridge-builders should differ in quantity, quality, or method of presentation because while the bridge is building one will wear knickerbockers and the other a rainy-day skirt. (1899)
Quotation: The life of the intellect and spirit has been lived only by men. The world of scholarship and research has been a man's world.
Quotation: The man's world must become a man's and a woman's world. Why are we afraid? It is the next step forward on the path to the sunrise, and the sun is rising over a new heaven and a new earth. (1908 Address to the North American Woman Suffrage Association, Buffalo)
