1793 - 1880

A Quote by Lucretia Coffin Mott on custom, education, injustice, learning, men, schools, sex, teachers, and women

Learning, while at school, that the charge for the education of girls was the same as that for boys, and that, when they became teachers, women received only half as much as men for their services, the injustice of this distinction was so apparent, that I resolved to claim for my sex all that an impartial Creator had bestowed, which, by custom and a perverted application of the Scriptures, had been wrested from women.
