Is there yet an portion or inheritance for us [Leah and Rachel] in our father's house?

Wisdom, Inspiration and Humor from the Mind and Heart
Since a time has come, Mademoiselle, when the severe laws of men no longer prevent women from applying themselves to the sciences and other disciplines, it seems to me that those of us who can, should use this long-craved freedom to study and to let men see how greatly they wronged us when depriving us of its honor and advantages.

Wouldn't we be saying then that men are more precious and sacred than all these things, and wouldn't that be the most grievous blasphemy?

Jane Anger fl. Was there ever any so abused, so slandered, so railed upon, so wickedly handled undeservedly, as are we women.

All I ask, is the privilege for my masculine part, the poet in me Johanna Cartwright fl. For the glorious manifestation whereof, and pyous meanes thereunto, your Petitioners humbly pray that the inhumane cruel Statute of banishment made against them, may be repealed, and they under the Christian banner of charity, and brotherly love, may again be received and permitted to trade and dwell amongst you in this Land, as now they do in the Nether-lands. Critics: in your sight no woman can win: keep you out, and she's too tight; she's too loose if you get in.
But, lady, as women, what wisdom may be ours if not the philosophies of the kitchen?

Anne Finch ? Trail all your pikes, dispirit every drum, March in a slow procession from afar, Ye silent, ye dejected, men of war. Be still the hautboys, and the flute be dumb!
