    ... any men who would give up the law-making power to women in order to remedy existing evils, would surely be those most ready to enact the needful laws themselves.
    Catherine E. Beecher (1800-1878), U.S. educator and author. Woman's Profession as Mother and Educator, with Views in Opposition to Woman Suffrage, "An Address to the Christian Women of America," (1872). Beecher was challenging the pro-suffrage argument that women needed the vote in order to influence the passage of progressive legislation. Her rather intricate argument held that if men were progressive enough to grant suffrage to women, then women didn't need suffrage, because those progressive men could be counted on to support the positions that women favored.
