Famous quotes by crystal eastman:

    It is not so much that women have a different point of view in politics as that they give a different emphasis. And this is vastly important, for politics is so largely a matter of emphasis.
    Crystal Eastman (1881–1928)

    ... there is nothing more irritating to a feminist than the average ‘Woman’s Page’ of a newspaper, with its out-dated assumption that all women have a common trade interest in the household arts, and a common leisure interest in clothes and the doings of ‘high society.’ Women’s interests to-day are as wide as the world.
