Protesting Oppression...Marching Forth

Lucretia Coffin Mott

"I have no idea of submitting tamely to injustice inflicted either on me or on the slave. I will oppose it with all the moral powers with which I am endowed.
I am no advocate of passivity."

Sampat Pal Devi
"Nobody comes to our help in these parts. The officials and the police are corrupt and anti-poor. So sometimes we have to take the law in our hands. At other times, we prefer to shame the wrongdoers," says Sampat Pal Devi, between teaching a "gang" member on how to use a lathi (traditional Indian stick) in self defence. 

Elizabeth Blackwell

"If society will not admit of woman's free development, then society must be remodeled. "  Elizabeth Blackwell
