Liberty

I am prepared to sacrifice every so-called privilege I possess in order to have a few rights.

 Inez Mulholland was one of the most popular speakers of the suffrage movement, traveling all over the U.S. to give speeches and rally citizens around the cause.  Raised in an affluent family and educated as a lawyer, Mulholland committed her life to working for causes of equality.  In 1916, she collapsed while giving a speech.  Her last recorded words were: "Mr. President, how long must women wait for liberty?"
