"To begin with, then, we are rejoiced to see something started which will bring the women to the knowledge they can deviate from long-established customs without bringing down the heavens upon their heads. Thousands and tens of thousands of them will blockade sidewalks, interfere with municipal ordinances, sing and pray in the most public places to be seen by men, and by this means be awakened to a realizing sense of their political duties."
Abigail Scott Duniway, The New Northwest, 1874.
