Universalist Quote of the Day #34

“Woman’s place in the world of today is any place and every place she can and wants to fill, from legislative halls to court rooms to the parlor and kitchen; from counting room and council chamber to laboratory and studio; from school room and university to college matron and chambermaid; from the plow handles and cotton fields, if she will, to the pulpit and the press.  This I say is the place in my opinion of woman in the world today.”

–Rev. Althalia Johnson Irwin, “Woman’s Place in the World,” Arkansas Gazette (May 4, 1907): 2.
