Women's Rights Quote #7

She had lived and breathed and thought and acted as directed by father and mother all these years, and now her father was dead and she was left under sole charge and direction of her mother. Her mother, did I say? A selfish tyrant, rather, to whom she was bound by those ties most binding to people trained as this girl had been. Affection, obedience, control of her will, all in the name of duty and religion.--Matilda Joslyn Gage
