“The denial of our duty to act in this case is a denial of our right to act; and if we have no right to act, then may we well be termed the white slaves of the North, for like our brethren in bonds, we must seal our lips in silence and despair.”

“There are two kinds of fathers in traditional households: the fathers of sons and the fathers of daughters. These two kinds of fathers sometimes co-exist in one and the same man. For instance, Daughters Father kisses his little girl goodnight, strokes her hair, hugs her warmly, then goes into the next room where he becomes Sons Father, who says in a hearty voice, perhaps with a light punch on the boys shoulder: Goodnight, Son, see ya in the morning.”
—Letty Cottin Pogrebin (20th century)
