"Female Virtues are ..." Quote of Joseph Addison

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Female Virtues are of a Domestick turn. The Family is the proper Province for Private Women to Shine in. If they must be showing their Zeal for the Publick, let it not be against those who are perhaps of the same Family, or at least of the same Religion or Nation, but against those who are the open, professed, undoubted Enemies of their Faith, Liberty, and Country.

Joseph Addison
Joseph Addison (1672-1719), British author. The Spectator, No. 81 (1711). In an essay on women's political partisanship.
