                      Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“The true woman will not be exponent of another, or allow another to be such for her. She will be her own individual
self . . . Stand or fall by her own individual wisdom and strength . . . She will proclaim the ‘glad tidings of good news’ to all women, that woman equally with man was made for her own individual happiness, to develop . . . every talent given to her by God, in the great work of life.”
  ~  Anthony and Stanton (1856)
