Mahatma Gandhi
“To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man's injustice to woman. If by strength is meant brute strength, then, indeed, is woman less brute than man.

If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with woman. Who can make a more effective appeal to the heart than woman?"
