Famous quotes containing the words vote and/or women:

    When Abraham Lincoln penned the immortal emancipation proclamation he did not stop to inquire whether every man and every woman in Southern slavery did or did not want to be free. Whether women do or do not wish to vote does not affect the question of their right to do so.
    Mary E. Haggart, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 3, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    The rich earth, of its own self made rich,
    Fertile of its own leaves and days and wars,
    Of its brown wheat rapturous in the wind,
    The nature of its women in the air,
    The stern voices of its necessitous men,
    This chorus as of those that wanted to live.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
