Wherever I am, I see the yoke on women in some form or another. On some it sits easy for they are but beasts of burden... - Abby May Alcott Quotes

Quote:Wherever I am, I see the yoke on women in some form or another. On some it sits easy for they are but beasts of burden. On others pride hushes them to silence; no complaint is made for they scorn pity or sympathy. On some it galls and chafes; they feel assured by every instinct of their nature that they were designed for a higher, nobler calling than to 'drag life's lengthening chain along. - Abby May Alcott Quotes
