Wisdom from the West Wing

Quotes from American presidents, statesmen, and other political figures historical and fictional.
To them this government has no just powers derived from the consent of the governed. To them this government is not a democracy. It is not a republic. It is an odious aristocracy; a hateful oligarchy of sex… which ordains all men sovereigns, all women subjects, carries dissension, discord, and rebellion into every home of the nation.
Susan B. Anthony, Speech After Being Convicted of Voting, 1872
