Famous quotes containing the word equality:

    The strongest reason why we ask for woman a voice in the government under which she lives; in the religion she is asked to believe; equality in social life, where she is the chief factor; a place in the trades and professions, where she may earn her bread, is because of her birthright to self-sovereignty; because, as an individual, she must rely on herself.
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815–1902)

    Proclaim human equality as loudly as you like, Witless will serve his brother.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    [When asked: “Will not woman suffrage make the black woman the political equal of the white woman and does not political equality mean social equality?”:] If it does then men by keeping both white and black women disfranchised have already established social equality!
    Anna Howard Shaw (1847–1919)
