Making an Impact
I think the degree of a nation's civilisation may be measured by the degree of enlightenment of its women.
Demure images like this cast the young Helen Keller (about 10 years old here) as a proper, wealthy Southern girl. You might not guess that she grew up to write fiery speeches on inequality. She continued her love of dogs and hatred of discrimination into adulthood.
The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands—the ownership and control of their lives and livelihood—are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights.
The way to help the blind or any other defective class is to understand, correct, remove the incapacities and inequalities of our entire civilization.
