A Quote by Justice William J. Brennan, Jr. on books, sexes, slavery, society, war, and women

Our statute books gradually became laden with gross, stereotyped distinctions between the sexes and, indeed, throughout much of the 19th century the position of women in our society was, in many respects, comparable to that of blacks under the pre-Civil War slave codes.

William J. Brennan (1906 - 1997)
