Senator Leighton: I don't know a judge in this district that will
  give you custody right now.
Emily Leighton: You wont take my children.
Senator Leighton: And how are you going to stop me? Can you afford an
  attorney?
Emily Leighton: An attorney? To prove what? That I'm their mother?
  What will your judge say? That this is your house and your
  children? What am I to you, Tom, in your house? Chattel? This is
  how you punish me? I am their mother! They are not your children to
  take!

[edit] Alice Paul

  • "A vote is a fire escape"
  • "When you’re alone you can make any choice you want. But when someone loves you, you lose that right. I won’t give anything away until we have it all. I can’t"
  • "We’re legitimate citizens. We’re taxed without representation. We’re not allowed to serve on juries so we’re not tried by our peers. It’s unconscionable, not to mention unconstitutional. We don’t make the laws but we have to obey them like children."
  • "You ask me to explain myself. I’m just wondering, what needs to be explained? It should be very clear. Look into your own heart—I swear to you, mine is no different. You want a place in trade and profession where you can earn your bread; so do I. You want the means of self-expression; so do I. You want to satisfy your own personal ambitions; so do I. You want a voice in the government in which you live; so do I. So what is there to explain?"
  • " ‘I believe the might of America is the love of its people for the Freedom of Mankind’ Woodrow Wilson, March 6, 1915.
  • ‘We have forgotten the history of the country when we have forgotten to agitate when it is necessary’ Woodrow Wilson, September 8, 1916.
  • "Liberty is a retractable thing to which no bounds ought to be set’ Woodrow Wilson, A Message to Congress.

‘There is nothing in liberty unless it is translated into definite action.’ July 4th, 1914, Woodrow Wilson"

[edit] Lucy Burns

  • "To pay the fine would be admitting guilt . We haven’t broken a law. Not one dollar!"

[edit] Woodrow Wilson

  • "This war could not be fought by America if it had not been for the services of women. We have made partners of the women in the war. Shall we make them partners of only suffering and sacrifice and toil, and not a partnership of privilege and right? I know the magic it will work in their thoughts and their spirits if you give this thing to them that is mere justice. We shall need their moral sense to preserve what is right and what is fine and worthy in our system of life. Be assured that the voices of the radicals who agitate and disrupt have no influence here today. The task of woman lies at the very heart of the war and I know how much stronger that heart will beat if you do this just thing and show our women that you trust them, as much as you in fact depend on them. We shall deserve to be distrusted if we do not enfranchise them with the fullest possible enfranchisement as it is now certain the other free and great nations will enfranchise theirs. Have I said that the passage of this amendment is a vitally necessary war measure? And do you need further proof?"

Alice Paul: I’m not a man.
Inez Mulholland: Ever wish you were?
Alice Paul: Once, when I saw my brother peeing his name in the snow.
