    Anonymous, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Revolution (August 19, 1869)

    ... woman does not see what people of intellect perceived fifty years ago: that suffrage is an evil, that it has only helped to enslave people, that it has but closed their eyes that they may not see how craftily they were made to submit.
    Emma Goldman (1869–1940)
