Hi Sandra,
I admire and seek out women who speak up. Glad you like the quote.

Hi Susan - glad you're doing the quotes, and especially for Women's History Month -- I chose the same topic for the same reason! I look forward to reading yours. I started out rather early, today's is from the 18th century.

What a great quote - very thought provoking.

And thanks for the reminder about it being Women's History month. I have planned to search for some special books to read for this month, but then I forgot that Women's history month was in March. I better go search through my to-read stacks and see if I have anything that is suitable.
