Amelia Jenks Bloomer
Woman's Authority
printer friendly version
If then home be indeed the sphere of woman, why has man
so wholly failed to make her supreme within its limits? If the
domestic circle comprise within it the whole sphere of woman,
why has she not been made secure in the exercise of her
authority over it? If the intellect of woman is to be wholly
expended in rearing and educating her offspring, and if it
be true, as it is affirmed to be, that her sway over the youthful
mind is so potent and enduring, why has her authority over her
offspring been so cramped and restricted? And instead of being
made only the agent of another, why has she not been made
secure in its exercise from the interference and control of the
impure and vicious?
