Dora Marsden

Freewoman and Egoist
1882 – 1960

The opponents of the Freewomen are not actuated by spleen or stupidity, but by dread. This dread is well founded upon ages of experience with a being who, however well loved, has been known to be an inferior, and who has accepted all the conditions of inferiors. Women, women’s intelligence, and women’s judgments have always been regarded with more or less secret contempt.

The Freewoman, Volume 1 Number 1, November 23rd 1911
