“Men make the moral code and they expect women to accept it. They have decided that it is entirely right and proper for men to fight for their liberties and their rights, but that it is not right and proper for women to fight for theirs.”
Emmeline Pankhurst, My Own Story

“There is something that Governments care for
far more than human life, and that is the security
of property, and so it is through property that we
shall strike the enemy. Be militant each in
your own way. I incite this meeting to rebellion.”
Emmeline Pankhurst

“Governments have always tried to crush reform movements, to destroy ideas, to kill the thing that cannot die. Without regard to history, which shows that no Government have ever succeeded in doing this, they go on trying in the old, senseless way.”
