  • I am not a suffragist, nor do I believe in "careers" for women, especially a "career" in factory and mill where most working women have their "careers." A great responsibility rests upon woman—the training of children. This is her most beautiful task.
    Mother Jones (1830-1930), U.S. labor organizer. Autobiography of Mother Jones, ch. 27 (1925). Jones preferred to emphasize the need for all men to earn adequate wages so that wives would not need to work outside their homes.
