Universalist Quote of the Day #31

“I seek to elevate woman.  I look to her elevation as to the elevation of the race.  I see in her, powers capable of great actions and a sublime life.  But I see no way in which these powers can be developed and that life lived but in active and useful employment.  Women ought to stand by man’s side in all that is great and good in thought and action.  The history of every country should have as much to record of woman as of man.  But this can never be till woman’s field of employment is extended.  She must go out and work.  She must do her own business, execute her own intentions, act nobly her part in life wherever she can be the best rewarded for her industry and judgment.”

–Rev. George Weaver, The Christian Household, 1854: 159-160.
