Dora Marsden

Freewoman and Egoist
1882 – 1960

How women have fallen into this position is a moot point. It is yet to be decided whether they ever did fall - where man and women have not been, from their creation, master and servant. If otherwise, and if woman did “fall,” the reason why is yet to be assigned. It is quite beside the point to say women were “crushed” down. If they were not “down” in themselves - i.e., weaker in mind - no equal force could have crushed them “down.”

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