I want for myself what I want for other women, absolute equality.
Never apologize. Never explain. Just get the thing done, and let them howl.
I believe the preservation of the home in the future lies almost entirely in the hands of men.
Do not rely completely on any other human being, however dear. We meet all life's greatest tests alone.
If the preservation of the home means the enslavement of women, economically or morally, then we had better break it.
Whatever is dirty, it is women's job to clean up, or drive some man to clean up, and that goes for everything from cellar to senate.
I owed it to my father that I was elected to Parliament in the first place, but I owed it to my mother that I stuck it out once I got there.
Most of the women who have offered themselves for public office over the years have done so, I believe, more because of the 'dirt' than in spite of it.
If they are willing to give women economic freedom in that home, if they are willing to live by the standard they wish women to live by, then homes will be preserves.
I do not want to be the angel of any home: I want for myself what I want for other women, absolute equality. After that is secured, then men and women can take turns being angels.
